  1. Here's one of my results with the RX10 II and Davinci Resolve 12 (Win64). ******************************* Source: 4K Slog2. Colour graded (with LUT) and exported to h264 1080p (15.000 kbps). ******************************* For the audio, I used a RODE Stereo Videomic Pro. It records LPCM automatically, which is quite interesting. The camera also seems to automatically adjust the audio level. I did some 4K exports before, but as it's mpeg4 (the free version won't allow me to export 4K in h264), the blacks are simply awful on YouTube and nothing like what I saw on Resolve's preview. Exporting to h264 yields correct blacks, so I decided to stick with 1080p. It's a shame, because watching the files (even the YouTube downloaded versions) back on MPC-HC, the picture seems quite good to my taste. ******************************* Exposure settings: 25 fps - 1/50s - ISO 3200 (+2.0 E.V. showing on the viewfinder). I found that the MPC-HC is the best player to play these files back (compared to what's seen on Resolve's preview window). P.S.: YouTube degrades the IQ quite a bit.
  2. This app is actually a FRAUD. The so called 'increased dynamic range' is an absurd statement. I've noticed that you gain absolutely no additional information changing from normal to flat in low light. I then noticed that it would not happen with highlights. That got me curious. What we can easily investigate is that this 'flat profile' option is just a mere filter, like the one people use to apply over jpeg's to post on Instagram. What it ACTUALLY DOES is change the Exposure values (either shutter speed or ISO) in order to recover highlights and then apply some 'greyish' filter to give it a cinematic look. It happens in all situations. In low light is more visible, because it cannot go slower than the selected frame rate. It is NOTHING like profile pictures such as Cinelike-D or S-log like the developer claims. Try it yourselves. Turning the Flat Profile option alters the exposure parameters quite dramatically. Take a look at this two frames and their crops. I repeat. This is a FRAUD. Glad I didn't buy the full version.
