DBounce Posted August 21, 2016 Share Posted August 21, 2016 24 minutes ago, Oliver Daniel said: I'm pleased with my footage from the A7SII. To get nice colour, it's required to modify the Slog2 profile (there's loads of help online), expose the footage at least 1.5 stops to the right and white balance correctly. Then you need advanced colour grading skills - firstly to correct the image accurately, bring down the exposure (especially those mids) and use a LUT as a base for further styling if required. Sharpen subtlety and you have a very nice image. If you don't do any of the above, then your footage will look like a pile of sick. Again, there's so much information on the A7S, LUTS and exposure. You have to put the learning work in to get results. The A7S and other Sonys get the best results through intricate hard work. For those who don't want that fuss, Canon or Nikon is your weapon of choice. Crap though, like you say, it isn't. Agreed, the Sony can produce decent colors, but you will need more effort to achieve them. That said I much favor Canon color science, as I'm sure most others do. Not sure how an A7Sii was recommended over a dedicated video camera? While both have strengths they are very different animals. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
