  1. Pro-Coformity LUT comparison. From left to right: Straight out of the camera (G85), with the LUT, added just some contrast and saturation (on Vegas Pro 15).
  2. No, Grimor, I am not selling it. if you like it, donate at least 10 USD (or equivalent) to any charity organization of your choice (for example Doctors Without Borders; there are many serious ones; maybe something even close to your home). You can write to me ([email protected]) with “Pro-Conformity LUT request” in the subject line and I will send it to you. I will also send some further information about it. Here another example:
  3. Folks, CineLike D has a lot of reserve in its favor. Certainly more than enough for most of us (particularly for those that use 8 bit codecs). The people from slashcam.de once wrote that one should develop a specific lut to take full advantage of this setting. This is specially true when you use the best settings to retain information in highlight and shadows. When you do this you certainly get more information from most m4/3 Lumix cameras, but you also get quite strange red and orange colors as a "bonus". I developed a lut to correct these colors and I am pretty satisfied with. By the way, Rudi Schmidts (slashcam.de) seemed quite impressed with the dynamic range of the HLG function in a recent review. Meanwhile, I will continue using my G85. Please, see a short video made during a nice trip to Portugal (all settings are informed in the description on Vimeo).
  4. Great first hand report, Andrew. And many thanks for sharing the video samples. This was also very helpful!
  5. Slashcam.de is a very trustful resource for anyone interested in videos. For years I use their unbiased knowledge in matter cameras and other stuff. There is an English version of their site, but all tests come first in German. See in their careful test that the 10 bit file works fine in comparison with the 8 bit (look at the forehead of the doll on the adjusted image - last one): https://www.slashcam.de/artikel/Test/Panasonic-GH5---8-Bit--10-Bit--4-2-2--V-Log-L---alles-OK----Die-GH5-in-der-10-Bit-Praxis.html#Die_G
  6. Have got very good results with Logarist. Tried it with my GH4 (cine-d) both in Vegas 14 and in DaVinci Resolve 12.5. The instructions are also very clear. I can only thank the people who took their time and effort to develop this tool, and made it available for free!
  7. I also preferred the picture taken with the Sony camera in that particular example. Sony seems to have a higher resolution and the red color in Canon is too strong (to my taste). Andrew's comment regarding the US election was unnecessary. By the way, the majority of people in the US voted for Clinton.
  8. No, I did not, Asmundma. And you are right: I should have done it and put images side by side, both before and after adjustments. However, the 60d has been an "old" companion of mine, and the EOSHD C-LOG seems to give a more flexible image (just the 8-bit codec is a nightmare in some situations). I am aware that highlights are burned in that particular image (should have been more careful). But please see the video as a whole. Shooting inside of a tropical forest is incredibly challenging in terms of light conditions. Even taking pictures, and pictures have a much better dynamic range than video in popular cameras, is not easy when you have direct sunlight on leaves, trunks (some covered with white lichens), while parts of the scenery is immersed in dark shadows. That is why I took the unpretentious 60d with EOSHD C-LOG in this walk to see how it could handle it (pretty good to my taste). Thank you for your input. If I find some time next weekend I will do a comparison test, as you suggested. See my post with a 60d. The t2i (a.k.a. 550d) should have the same video characteristics of the 60d.
  9. A quick test with the very good EOSHD C-LOG on a Canon 60D. The limiting factor in some situations: the 8-bit codec.
