Thanks! I guess it’s time to tryout the 4K ?

I got mine for $700 ?

So it’s best to keep the aperture above F3.5? ? I did shoot a lot of test footage at F2.8..

I forgot it went to 2.8 on the wide end. 2.8 is great. I just notice the image gets noticeably mushy if you’re all the way closed down.

They have been using it for quite some time with great results. Definetelly shows a segment where the camera is great. This is mainly a "film maker" forum. But we sometimes seem to forget that no

I am slowly getting round to finishing my mammoth XC10 review.... expect it this week!

Still haven't had time to shoot anything for more than 30 min. Hopefully next week. So I took it for a quick run when I went to the store. Wanted to see how the XC10 worked under really bright condit

You may have seen this, but I shot this when I first bought the camera. Looking at this footage reminds of how crazy easy the camera is to shoot with and how good the stabilizer on the long end is crazy good. 

The shots at :09 were shot on the "standard" profile I believe, with the NR and Sharpening all the way down. They seem to have a thicker color than the other clips I shot. You could easily cut shots like that with a C300 and not notice. 

The indoor shots are all ETTR (expose to the right, kept the clouds jammed to the right on the histogram.) The highlights are so soft I don't think it would matter if they clipped anyway.

ISO?? Are you confusing ISO and shutter speed with each other?

Can you switch it over to NTSC? Maybe then you can see 24p as an option??

 

not possible

Yes I have seen it already. This is one of the great examples what the XC10 can do! And I thought that was all done in C-log..

Can you elaborate a bit on what your grading process was like with the XC10? I like the natural look of your footage. 

When you say standard, do you mean profile 1 or 2?

I am testing 4k c-log 500 iso now, looks much better already! It seems like it is best to ETTR just a bit from reading of the camera's meter.

I was using the C300 Log 2 or 3 LUT? Probably not the proper way to do it, but I am happy with the results.

Sorry, I can't remember which profile it was. Early on people were recommending it as the best profile with the least amount of NR.

You also used that c300 log lut for the standard profile?
