The previous manual dynamic range chart was incorrect, and was corrected. That's good to know. Regardless, +5.5 at base is very competitive. Similar to the 4.6k, no? I believe Foveon sensors have a non-linear rolloff, but point taken. I think the complicating factor is with A7S SLOG2 or something you have chroma clipping and sharpening that can muddy up the highlights in a way where they're difficult to recover aesthetically because the channel data is clipped in raster even if the signal wasn't in raw: https://www.liftgammagain.com/forum/index.php?threads/the-dreaded-clipped-channels-on-sony-blue-footage.9970/ But I suppose this isn't an issue with Red, Alexa, Black Magic, etc. whether in raw or ProRes. That said, there must also be something to the highlight recovery algorithm? I do wish Black Magic would implement this for cameras other than its own. My C200 raw footage could benefit from it for sure based on how effective it seems to be with 4.6k footage, but maybe that's not possible. Just bought a Resolve license so you're getting my money either way. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
