Hi there

Could I ask the point of this (throwing away levels)? Is there any science behind it?

To be compatible with Cineon log workflow.

And aren’t those black levels recoverable in post?

Yes. But we are talking about efficient use of code values of encoding in-camera.

Fooling around with HLG. Adjusted curves using a waveform and added some saturation.  It definitely seems a bit cleaner then log. Skin tones looked good according to the vectorscopes.   

The Input color space is the camera color space : Rec.2020 (Scene) for F-log Rec.709 Gamma 2.4 for film simulations Rec.2020 ARIB STD-B67 for HLG  

Wow that looks nice. Just about a perfect exposure.

Hi, i've read alot about this and still can't work out which is the best to use. At home when i play around with both log and HLG i can get good results but i find F-Log i get better results, but isnt HLG ment to be better and have more dynamic range and information? Is F-Log actully better for holding more color information?

Best to use is 'unique' to you as in how well can you shoot Flog and how well can you grade it?

I find it tough as a hybrid wedding photographer so used HLG for a while, but actually gone back to shooting Eterna again.

Eterna of course is not as recoverable in the highlights as correctly exposed HLG but it's what works for you.

I may go back to HLG but then matching up XT3 footage with Mavic Air with OSMO Action and sometimes static 1" sensor Sony camcorder is a PITA!
