    As you can see in my post above: it does not matter if it's above noise level and below clipping. 
    If you dont want to do much work in post, use the wolfcrow method. Which is basically expose the skin to 70 IRE.

    There are other things in a6400 too....biggest positive is the elimination of 29 minutes in video!
    another good thing is the adoption of HLG video, hdr video without the need of slog.

    Finally we have live histogram in video, Auto ISO , manual ISO change in video while recording, EVF-LCD switch while recording, ISO change via Front Wheel (no audible clicks anymore) ...very nice upgrade.
     
     
    Now, give us internal Flog and i am happy ....

    toxotis70 got a reaction from richg101 in Lens swap from Canon to Sony?   
    i have both A6000 and A7s.
    I only have emount APSC lenses, but for Video is more than enough!
    50mm 1.8 OSS is nice  in A7s , sharp as can be, 75mm eq. , perfect for portraits and very low light.
    I have also Sony 18-105mm f/4 OSS, with incredible stabilization, very sharp, constant aperture, and very useful range (27-160mm eq).
    Very fast focus too.
    I have sony sel 10-18mm f/4 OSS, sharp too, and very wide for indoors use (15-27mm eq).
     
    You don't loose any sharpness (on the contrary you have more sharp image) , you only loose 1 stop of light, but its not that important in A7s.
    You also gain less rolling shutter in crop mode.
     
     
    If you want another fast , more wide prime, there is 35mm OSS , very good lens, 50mm eq in A7s and with OS !
     
     
    Here is an example of a7s and sony sel 50mm 1.8 OS

    toxotis70 got a reaction from jcs in 3D LUTs for A7S Slog2 and SGamut   
    There is also Catalyst Browse form sony, you can try it,  it works well and have some unique features (transcoding to Prores , WB correction, etc).
    You can also make your own LUT with this program and export as .cube file.
    It will work with any program, such resolve, speed grade, Premiere,  FCPX and LUT utility etc

    toxotis70 reacted to Jacek in Panasonic (LX100) neutral settings   
    Because I thought (based on my initial tests) that I can recover more details with Shadow/Highlight than with Contrast...
    But because You asked, I made more detailed tests and I realized I was wrong.
     
    I tested shadows and highlight recovering in high dynamic scene with:
    1. Contrast:0 + Highlight/Shadow:0
    2. C:-5 + H/S:0
    3. C:0 + H/S:-2/+2
    4. C:0 + H/S:-5/+5
     
    Here are my observations:
    - Clipping is exacly the same in all tests. No additional data captured in all tests.
    - Test 2 and 3 give similar results (Test 2 has little bit less contrast): C:-5 is almost the same effect as H/S:-2/+2
    - Recovered deep shadows are: 1. worst (noise blockiness, blue channel clipping), 2. = 3. better, 4. best
    - Noise level in mid-tones is similar in all tests when final contrast is matched. Scary noise :) in flat images disappears when contrast is reversed (Or appears when lowering contrast in post).
     
    Conclusions:
    - Lowering contrast or H/S curve does not affect overall camera dynamic range.
    - Looks like Contrast and H/S are altered after camera captured the image but before encoding (that's why we can get better shadows after lowering contrast).
    - You can get nicer deep shadows (mostly when you want to brighten them) by lowering contrast (no matter if by Contrast or H/S curve) only because the shadows move to the right on the histogram.
     
    The differences between 'normal' picture profiles (Natural, Standard, Portrait) are small and difficult to measure and I don't have time to do that. By simple comparison they just look like small Contrast/Saturation tweaks, nothing more.
     
     
    So in normal situation, especially when you have enough dynamic range to move the histogram to the right, there is no reason to lower contrast - you only loose some color information. You can lower the contrast in post with same effect (Just try - you can push it really hard in post).
     
    Lowering contrast can improve only shadow noise. It is usefull when most of the histogram is on the left (or important things are in shadows) or if you want to brighten the shadows in post. The darker the shadows, the more usefull is moving them to the right on the histogram.
     
    My default settings will be for now:
    Picture profile: Standard
    Contrast: 0 (or -5 just in case to have more control over shadows in post)
    Sharpness: -5
    Noise reduction: -5
    Saturation: 0?
    Shadow/Highlight: 0/0
     
    When need to brighten deep shadows in post: Contrast up to -5 and then additionally S/H up to +5/-5

    Hard for me to tell for sure in the Blunty video.

    I'll do a test with my 14 (28), 28 (56) and 135 (270) mm lenses (as that's all I packed with me on this trip to NY). I'll do locked down, panning, tilting, handheld (but static), handheld with vertical movement, handheld with horizontal movement, and then some walk around hand held. Figure that also might be a decent test of the codec.

    If there's anything else you want to see let me know!
