austinchimp Posted April 17, 2015 Share Posted April 17, 2015 I'm sorry to return to what is an old topic by now, but I'm wondering what people's thoughts are on this subject.My own feeling is that I'm moving more and more away from S-Log and even the cine picture profiles and more towards capturing a rich colour palate in camera at the time of shooting.Capturing in a flat or LOG profile in this camera seems to lead to milky, chalky kind of flat colour both in skin and in general. Now granted, that is also due to a lack of grading expertise, but I see this in so many videos and in my own work. I feel that the punchy rich colours that people love about the NX1 for example are possible in the A7s, but perhaps not in the profiles we've all been concentrating on.Take for example Brandon Li's film Gateway to the Ganges - https://vimeo.com/116044343i don't see any S-Log footage coming anywhere near that. While I appreciate the looks you can get from the S-Log footage, what i really find myself responding to these days is richness and depth of colours rather than the desaturated low contrast look which is so en vogue.My current go-to profile has been Kholi's cine2 picture profile, but even that seems to lack that immediacy that says to the brain "This is real" that's hard to bring back in during grading.Maybe I'm just doing it wrong.
