  1. New EOSHD Pro Color 3.0 and EOSHD Pro LOG comes to Sony cameras

    Screen grabs from a7sii footage---Pro color 3.0 XR out of the camera, only slight exposure corrections
  2. New EOSHD Pro Color 3.0 and EOSHD Pro LOG comes to Sony cameras

    New A7sII video using Pro Color 3.0 and Pro Log (ersatz C-log), shot entirely hand held using Canon FD lenses (17mm, 50mm, 85mm, 100 mm, 200mm)
  3. External recording on the Sony a7S mark 2

    Yes. Me neither. I called the Atomos tech who helped me earlier and told him about the HDMI 4K issue. He said it must have been some impedance difference that was causing it. It matters not. What matters is knowing about this in purchasing a mini-4k HDMI to standard HDMI cable. Try before you buy if possible. Not sure you can tell by cost. The one that worked on the Canon but not on the Sony was a bit more expensive and more robust in build. So...beauty is only skin deep it seems.
  4. External recording on the Sony a7S mark 2

    Hi, everyone, and thanks for contributing to help me solve my issue. I talked to Atomos today, and after a bit of back and forth the guy asked me to check my HDMI cable--and see if it worked for 4k. Now this seemed futile to me, because I KNEW it did. But I pulled out my XC15 Canon to test the cable and BOOM, the Shogun was recording 4k like a top!! Back to the Sony--Bupkis. But I did recall I had another micro HDMI cable, so,..... just for laughs I decided to try it--and BLAM!!! The Shogun screen lit up with the Sony 4 K and I was recording on SSDs. So, here's the deal. Just because a mini or micro HDMI feeds 4k into your external recorder for one camera or brand of camera does not mean it will feed 4 k into another. Capisce?!? Try to remember this...because it will be on the test.
  5. External recording on the Sony a7S mark 2

    Not familiar with those products.
  6. External recording on the Sony a7S mark 2

    Absolutely right. The Shogun (Flame, etc) improve color info and image quality similar to the way superior components of an external audio recorder improves sound quality. Not all that awkward a solution if you're just using it in studio.
  7. External recording on the Sony a7S mark 2

    True. But I'd only use it in studio--and I would be gaining Pro Res. Since I use Final Cut Pro Res is worth a lot in terms of ease of editing.
  8. External recording on the Sony a7S mark 2

    I own a Shogun, and was hoping to record 4k with it from my a7SII. But I can only figure out how to make it record 1080p. So, can you record 4k from the a7SII on the Shogun? Besides ATOMOS, is there an external 4k recorder that will work with the Sony?
  9. APS-C SPEED BOOSTER MATH

    Ausgezeichnet! Danke viel Mals. As clear as an unmuddied lake, sir. As clear as an azure sky of deepest summer.
  10. APS-C SPEED BOOSTER MATH

    Ethan, would that be true for a MFT camera as well as a APS-C?
  11. APS-C SPEED BOOSTER MATH

    Yawn, I'm sure this topic has been covered before but I can't seem to find it. Here's the question: I have a dumb speed booster with a 0.71 reducer and a lens that is 100mm. My camera asks me what lens angle of view I'm shooting so its internal stabilization will make the lens usable for hand held use. What do I tell my camera to stabilize the 100 ff lens on my aps-c camera? Enquiring math-challenged minds want to know.
  12. New EOSHD Pro Color 3.0 and EOSHD Pro LOG comes to Sony cameras

    Just for ha-has I decided to look through the videos of the Sony a7sii on Vimeo. First, I didn't go through all, but most for sure. And none mentioned they used Pro Color 3.0. I was looking at the videos particularly for color. And the color, compared to the videos I've seen on this thread, is not good at all. It makes me think Andrew (and those he has inspired here to really investigate the capabilities of the pic profiles) really has put together a game changing thing with Pro Color 3.0 and Pro Log etc. As a hobbiest I don't get a chance to shoot and edit as much as I'd like, so the time I do get is precious...and telling. Since Pro Color 3.0 and the Log/LUT additions I bi-pass my GH5 in the time I've got (hate MFT sensors anyway) I head straight for the a7sii. Hmmm. Think I'm going to sell my MFT cams.
  13. How to correctly expose Sony a7s II when using Pro Log and Pro Log S?

    Thanks. Yes, that's really helpful in seeing how closely they conform. Different strokes for different folks, but I really like the look of Pro Color Classic. I'd really like to see how a vectorscope reads with that profile. My guess is the red would read well to the left of the skin tone line. The sections I was thinking of in my video was not concerned with skin tone, per se, but with the general land scape or scene. Below is what I'm talking about. 2:43: graded Pro Log S, 2:47: 2:49 Pro Log S, Pro Log (Canon Log) with pro color -1, 2:51 Pro Log S graded, 2:53 Pro Log w/ pro color -1. All shot with Sony a7sii and Canon FD lenses.
  14. How to correctly expose Sony a7s II when using Pro Log and Pro Log S?

    So, Andrew, I've really been enjoying the results of these 3.0 offerings--much better than Sony color OOTC. I've gotten some nice comments on how well the color looks--how natural they are....-but I do have a question about Log cinema and LOG S and the use of LUTs you provide for each. Specifically,, the various Log S LUTs don't seem to match well with the LUTs you provide for Pro Log Cinema. I recently did a video where I shot mostly Pro Log Cinema. But there were a few instances I really needed more dynamic range to protect the highs so I shot a few clips with Pro Log S. When I got them in my grading program I really had a bit of trouble matching the Log S color with the Log Cinema. Where am I going wrong, or what would you suggest would work well to match the mixed footage in post?
  15. New EOSHD Pro Color 3.0 and EOSHD Pro LOG comes to Sony cameras

    Graded, mostly using the "canon log" pic profile, a few of the falls in Pro-log S, graded in FCPX
