  1. You can use Color Space Transform to convert your footage to REC2020 color space and ST.2084 and grade it by hand after that. You will need to connect it to your OLED TV using Decklink card in order to view it properly on the screen.
  2. Nikon is amazing if you do both photos and video. Beautiful image and great handling. If you're only interested in video there are better options, unless you don't mind using external recorder.
  3. When you shoot prores externally on Z6 the quality of the footage is remarkable. I don't think that you can get anything better image wise for under 10k.
  4. I did my tests a while ago and decided that it wasn't worth it. RSMB provides pretty good results when you have a simple object moving against a simple background, but in challenging situations like shooting from a moving car, it will give lots of artifacts. Also, rendering times are horrendous. It's going to be much faster to use fixed NDs then to apply RSMB in post.
  5. HLG is not a log profile, so it shouldn't be used as such. The reasons to avoid shooting in Slog2 or 3 would be compression artifacts, which can be avoided by using an external recorder. Slog 2/3 with S-Gamut3.cine will give you a much better result than Pro color and especially 709, which is horrible on Sony cameras.
  6. Thank you. Did you watch it in HDR? It's my first HDR project and I haven't tested it on many screens. Also, SDR downconversion is not super straightforward.
  7. I had so much fun shooting with Mavic 2 Pro. Felt like a kid who got his first video game console. H265 in 10bit holds up surprisingly well. I graded my video in HDR and didn't experience any issues other than slight banding in the gradients.
  8. I did a comparison video of Nikon Z6 and Sony A6500 if anyone is interested. It would make more sense to compare it to A7III but I didn't have at the time, and it looks pretty much the same as A6500 in Slog.
  9. You're not going to gain any increases in quality. The only benefit would be to improve performance when editing prores vs h264 or similar.
  10. The banding in your image is caused by heavy compression and there's no way to fix it other than shooting with external recorder. As for LUTs I would suggest to avoid official Canon REC709 LUTs because they have very aggressive curve and tend to blow out highlights very easily. You can see it on your model's face.
  11. Regarding 120p quality, I did tests with XT-3, and I now own Z6, and XT-3 has better quality in 1080p.
  12. I would be more than happy with internal Nlog in 10 bit.
  13. I agree. Accuracy doesn't mean aesthetically pleasing. Film is not accurate but at the same time has better color than most digital cameras. Famous Canon colors are also far from accurate.
  14. Is this a joke? The lighting is completely different on these pictures.
  15. Does anybody know what's the default sharpness setting on Z6? I've seen a bunch of tests on youtube where the footage seems to be artificially sharpened, especially in 1080p. I assume that it can be dialed down.
  16. I think BM keyboard is overpriced for what it is. Having jog is nice but it depends on how responsive and precise it is.
  17. Good looking stuff. I'm glad that Nikon is pushing video capabilities of their cameras
  18. Thanks. Here's Slog3 pack https://sellfy.com/p/zZb3/#
  19. Hey everyone, I created custom Slog2 S-Gamut3.cine to REC709 LUTs because I wasn’t not very happy with the official LUTs or the ones that included with Davinci Resolve. Inside the archive you will find technical Slog2 into REC709 LUT as well as more stylized LUTs for specific looks. I also included versions with exposure compensation -1EV for overexposed material and official LUTs by Sony for your convenience. Get it here
  20. Comparison with standart LUTs
  21. Looks great! Can you preview and delete clips in the camera?
  22. Disclaimer: I'm not trying to compete with EOSHD profile. The LUTs that I'm offering have a different look and it's better suited for people who like to tweak footage in post. I’ve been working on these LUTs for the last three months and after hours of extensive testing with different clips the result is pretty good. You can see the example here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZ8dFKmvMkQ The cameras the you see in the example above are Canon C100 and Sony A7SII. I also did tests with A6300 and in theory you should be able to test it with any Sony camera that has S-Gamut3.cine setting but from my experience FS7 and FS5 have slightly different color, so it might not work properly. It also might not work on clips with mixed lighting. Every camera sensor responds differently to certain light sources, so it’s impossible to account for that too. Check the product page and my blog for more information and examples: https://sellfy.com/p/pyqB/ https://colorandpost.blogspot.com/ Feel free to contact me if you want to review the product or test it with FS5 or FS7.
  23. and it's not 4k...why are they nominating films that are not in 4k at least? doesn't make any sense!
  24. I think it should help with ugly macroblocking when you're shooting on C100 in less than ideal lighting conditions. At least on the paper it should
