Noise in shadows PRO LOG

Recommended Posts

i tend to get a lot of noise in my shadows, even with a very low ISO (100-800)
I am shooting on a sony a6500 with the PRO LOG cine picture profile.

Does anyone have any advice on this, is it like S-LOG where you have to expose +2 stops?

Here is an example (Rendered at maximum depth and exported with vbr 2 pass 25/30)
especially the first couple shots is noisey in the shadows the exposure shouldn't be less than -0,3 and this shows even before youtube compression.

Hope you can help :)

EOSHD Pro Color for Sony cameras EOSHD Pro LOG for Sony CamerasEOSHD C-LOG and Film Profiles for All Canon DSLRs

To be honest, I can't see any disturbing noise in the shots you mentioned.

The footage looks clean and pleasing to the eye.

 

 

Here's the advice, though:

A quote from the .pdf file you should have, if you actually bought EOSHD for Sony (I hope Andrew won't mind) :

Quote

Pro LOG Cinema benefits from exposing at 0 on the exposure meter in-camera (that is to say in the
middle) or sometimes slightly under to protect the highlights. However Pro LOG S (S-LOG based) benefits
from exposing at least 1.5-stops to-the-right (+1.5 on the exposure meter in-camera).

Um your blacks are nowhere close to black in this video. LOG footage is noisy in the shadows before grading, it's not meant as a straight out of camera look.

      This is a remake of the opening scene of BLITZ.
      (a movie of Jason Statham)

      In the near future we will make more remakes and other stuff like this,
      to test out how cameras react in different illumination, how much noise it produces and how
      much we can push it without adding light in the scene.

      I've just shot a short film using the ML raw hack for the 5DmkIII. We are using a PC workflow so we transcoded the raw files into Cineform raw using GoPro Studio Premium, RAW2GPCFv113, and RAWinizer. Cineform seems like a much easier workflow than cinemaDNG, so that is what we went with.

      However, the resulting Cineform .mov files that come out are pretty noisy. I shot almost the entire film at 100 ISO with Canon CN-E lenses so I'm pretty sure the noise is a result of the transcoding process.
       
      Has anyone else worked with Cineform raw? Is the noise typical or am I doing something wrong? We purchased Andrew's 5D raw guide and I didn't see any mention of this, as either a problem to avoid or something typical to expect.

      I assume Neat Video Pro would be capable of noise reduction while maintaining the high bitrate of Cineform raw, but is this really necessary? As it is some shots almost look unusable "out of the box" so to speak without some noise reduction.
      I am posting this from work so the only clip I can show, at the moment, is this one I previously uploaded for the director to see. This one isn't particularly noisy but it is more noticeable in other clips.

      I've uploaded some test footage from the new Panasonic GH3. 
       
      The first portion of the video contains fairly even lighting with tests from f2.8/ISO 200 - f16/ISO 6400. The second portion introduces a hot spot via a desk lamp. Test are from f4.0/ISO 200 - f22/ISO 6400. 
       
      Gradation looks very good in the bright areas of the footage. Blacks are fairly consistent throughout. ISO 200 - 800 appears damn fine, as far as noise is concerned. ISO 1600 fairly good and easily workable.  ISO 3200 is usable. 6400 is useless.
