Looks good Chris; Did you end up monitoring with the .vlt, or 709?

Here are some stills from the weekend:

Used the standard Panasonic version for monitoring, since yours had way too much banding for monitoring, and wasn't accurate at all in terms of colors/highlights, etc. In post, it's a different story for sure!

Nice looking shots! Makes me reconsider my GH5.

Thanks man, its hard to beat. I used an Alexa for a bit, and then switched to the 5, because it was easier on my back 😉

Just got a GH5 to go with my Alexa and purchased the LUTS. Pretty impressed so far. With some tweaks, they work very well.

Welcome!

Nice looking stills.

Have you tried to match the GH5 with your Alexa yet?  If so, how did it go?

Yea its a tough call. I still prefer the GHa vlt colors, as long as its the midtones. Highlight gradients can't keep up at 17x with GH5 interpolation

Hi @Sage is there a Sony a7 version coming some day? I'm currently DPing a Feature and we are using the Sony a7sII. 

That's the plan; I'm wading through some complex code at the moment, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel lately.

Why didn't they opt for GH5?

I mentioned it but the director really wanted the full frame look, also there are some situations of low key lighting and despite i always light my scenes, the sony do respond really well in low key.

On one hand i did some test shots and was able to get some nice color from the Sony. But honestly i prefer the GH5 for IQ and if i can I'm gonna steal some shots with mine for the film.

Primer LUT for Sony works quite well, I'd say very close to Alexa.

Better than the S? This is one area I expected the P4K to excel at, with that new sensor.

Well the p4k has the advantage of raw, the IQ is better. 

Better DR and color out of the box as well and little to no processing at all. :)
Still waiting for BMD to fix color science 4 though (red clipping).

This may be the reason for the slow down in shipping - they want to fix the problem before shipping out any more?

Do you have raw (prores) red clipping footage? If so, can you send it my way? I'd like to take a look at it.

It's not a camera issue (well it kinda is recording ProRes at least). Take a look at this sample BRAW file from Blackmagic from the UMP. Same issue using color science 4
