Horrific noise from FS700 both in 4K & 1080 Slowmo In: Cameras Posted May 12, 2017 3 minutes ago, jcs said: The profiles really won't have much effect on noise, they just increase the visibility or not (e.g. bringing up the blacks); this is from using the FS700 with internal recording. As @BenEricson noted, I'd be surprised if the picture profiles affect RAW out. In any case, I'd stick with a log format since you're using RAW out to ProRes (10-bits or more). Once you apply a LUT from log to 709, the blacks will be much darker and the noise less apparent. if still too much, Neat Video works very well (even though it's time consuming). If you can't add light when filming, perhaps consider getting a used A7S II (does really nice 120p). For some shots optical motion interpolators can work very well going from 120 to 240fps (or higher). This of course takes time in post, so you see the pattern :). Again, look carefully at the final delivery target for noise quality. If on YouTube/Vimeo (online streaming), you'll be surprised how much "free" NR you'll get (whether you want it or not, e.g when trying to get film grain to show up). I just swapped my A7S2 for a FS700R actually so I'm stuck with this for a little while. Ill probably get a regular A7Si as I have a external recorder now so can use 4K if i wanted to. Not sure if the 1st model has slog3 or not which would be nice. Ill defiantly go down the neat video route, would the workflow be better to apply LUT prior to neat video or before? If I shot for example in CINE1 and used my shogun, it seems to be recording fine? But am i loosing out on something and not getting 10 bit or higher? Im a tad lost on the matter.
