Just wanted to share a promo I just made for DKNY with the Sony a7S. This was made as a tribute to my beautiful wife, Kari, whom passed in August 2015 from Cystic Fibrosis - a chronic illness with no known cure. Every shot but the New York B-roll was with the a7S (recorded in 4K by the Atomos Ninja Flame), and graded with FilmConvert. I hope you enjoy the video.
Please let me know what you think!
Your parrot Flaubert sits sadly in the corner.
He says, "jamais" crying in French.
A short film exercise, testing V-Log -L on the GH4.

Edited on FCPX, graded with FilmConvert.
Filmconvert a7s profiles are now available for download:
I must say that I didn't like the colors of a7s image at all, but now with filmconvert it looks very good to me. I've made a quick test with all the film profiles except b&w ones, adjusted contrast, raised saturation to 120 and added 30%grain. Also before filmconvert, denoised with Neat Video and sharpened a little bit. Didn't bother to make it perfect, I was just interested to see how the colors look.
