Yes, such as ProRes LT (my usual choice when I'm just going to upload direct to YouTube for my vlog)

No. Even ProRes Proxy is 10 bit.

ProRes 4444 is 12 bit.

There is no 8 bit option in ProRes and on this camera. But i think this is not a problem.

Again, use the P4K with vintage lenses & it shines!

Low light was amazing & I wouldn't worry too much about the sun - the choice was made to see her & blow the sun. You've gotta remember it's the brightest thing you'll ever film & there will always have to be a pay off. There's also nothing wrong with crushing blacks or blowing highlights - it's a modern malady that tries to enforce that you can't do this.

Blowing the sun is not the problem, he tried to recover too much highlight detail, which creates a distracting, harsh edge around the blown-out parts.

@Bioskop.Inc The sun will always be blown, that's hardly a choice. The choice was to try to save the detail in the clouds.

Having not seen the original files and making this up as I go along. I would have just lifted the shadows and left the sky totally blown out. I think it would have looked a lot nicer and still give the model some detail against the strong light.

Something wrong with your quote, that wasn't me :) But I agree completely.

I just googled to check, and yup, I got it wrong! Thanks for pointing that out. 

Am a little surprised then there is no 8bit option whatsoever as a more lightweight / quick turn around / long form option?

I just wish there was 720p. 😂

Is 8bit really going to change your turnaround time all that much?

The quick turnaround is using ProResLT in Video mode. Why would you want 8bit, it's the past.

720p isn't a terribly bad feature to have either, say if you're streaming a boring loooooong corporate event that is droning on for hours and hours 

There are still plenty of TV stations too which only demand 720 or less

I don't think the DNGs weigh anything

After some research on a film, data does indeed have a weight. All the data of the internet weighs about the same as a strawberry :)

On topic- After Magic Lantern on the 5dIII, raw/prores on this camera coupled with Black Magic's focus for a professional tool makes my next camera purchase easier to decide.
