    Fuji log uses 95-1023, because of the gamma curve. That's still a wider range than video range (64-940).

    Strictly speaking it's full range 0-1023. But Fuji encodes nothing between 0-95.

    I hope they enable 4:3 format video from the entire sensor. That would really fulfill the promise of having medium format for video. MF was always square (6x6) or squarish (645, 6x7). IMAX is 1.43:1. Not saying that wide format 65mm isn't amazing, but I want that vertical height as well.

    The readout drive mode they use for 4K video actually derives 3884 x 2912 from the full width and height of the sensor, so it would be very easy to implement, it would also be perfect for 65mm anamorphic lenses.

    Hi there

    Could I ask the point of this (throwing away levels)? Is there any science behind it?

    To be compatible with Cineon log workflow.

    And aren’t those black levels recoverable in post?

    Yes. But we are talking about efficient use of code values of encoding in-camera.

  4. The HDR mode is achieved using DOL-HDR, a feature seen on numerous Sony sensors including the ones in X-T3 and GFX100.

    Basically using 2 ADCs to generate 2 frames of different gain settings almost concurrently. However rolling shutter will double and max frame rate will be halved.

    You are right, I think all seasons was edited in HDR and converted in SDR for broadcasting. Probably the blueray with HDR will be distributed later. I remember that for first seasons probably Alexa at 2.6K was used so not in 4K or more. 

    They were edited in SDR. Then the digital source was/will be remastered in HDR.

    My wife follow the series, after she told me about the dark battle (she closed all the windows to watch it) I tried to watch the 3rd episode. Yes is very dark, I think the problem was in the HDR to SDR conversion. Probably watch at it in HDR reference monitor like the Sony 300 (I think the one used in mastering) was very good but in SDR the result is very poor. I don’t know if the SDR conversion is on charge of the broadcasters, in this case is not completely a DOP fault. Aniway he must think  about it, pushing to much the contrast and abuse of Latitude in the mastering  is dangerous if you have not control on all the line of distribution...Is an old problem like the one about Dolby deliver of contents, Dolby always suggest to try to listen at it on a mono low quality loudspeakers before deliver it :)

    Apart from S1, GoT was not mastered in HDR.

    Hi guys !

    Quick question, I just got myself a Fuji X-T3. I noticed that when I gently shake the body (I didn't do it on purpose in the first place), I hear something wobbling inside. I can't remember having that feeling with the previous X-T3 I had the chance to try a few weeks ago. I tried to block the back lcd screen, but it wasn't it. Can you also hear something moving a bit when you shake your camera ? No lens attached, body turned on or off. (maybe I have the first XT series with IBIS, and that's the sensor moving !)

    And also, what are the shortcomings I should be wary about ? I remember a few members of this forum having quality control issues with theirs, especially @DBounce if I'm not mistaken.

    Thank you guys !

    This is normal and happens in X-T1 and X-T2 as well. It occurs only when you tilt the camera back and forth, not side to side (from portrait to landscape). It's part of the viewfinder diopter mechanism. As long as the camera functions well, no need to be concerned.

    I got my two X-T3s early on and assumed I was just unlucky. I do know that the X-T3s are made in China not Japan... which is usually not a good thing.

    I knew you'd jump on that made in China BS. Isolated QC incidents can happen anywhere, so please put your stereotype away.

    Thats awesome! Hopefully they can implement a decent codec instead of h265. If I was Z Cam I would be knocking on blackmagics door for Braw. 

    I downloaded a clip from the F6, but I could not push the image around like I wanted or way less room to play around with vs my ursa mini pro or even my pocket 4K at this point, seems they need to fix the curve on that cam still, also something weird going on with the noise in the camera(but its still all very alpha/beta, so they have some time to fix the problems). 

    They are working on Cineform RAW.

    Hi all. Loving this conversation. Just got the X-T3, switching from Canon. I wanted to shoot in hlg, but noticed the ISO 1000, is that a hardline or is there anyway to drop it lower? I have a variable Nd filter if need be, but would love to not have it natively that.

    P.S. yes I know this is a year old thread, but it's the only place I can find that's mentioned the iso 1000. 

    Take a look at the original post, ISO 1000 is explained in detail.

    It can't and shouldn't be dropped lower.

    Hey androidlad, for under $1K, which TV would you recommend to use for grading?, not professional of course, but something that can be close enough....if that option exist of course, more than one option will be great...

    Why would you grade on a TV? There are some good quality 24-27in monitors in the sub-1K range that are great for SDR grading as long as you calibrate properly.
