Sony A7R III review – the BBC fixed Sony’s colour!

Interlock” is the band in my video shot at “The Famous Gold Watch” Studios. I highly recommend checking them out. The studios are run by my friend Cameron – check them out if you need mixing, mastering and recording facilities in Berlin!

Maria

This is the first in a new series of articles dispelling current ‘trends, myths and sacred cows’ in digital video.

Currently it’s trendy to tune cameras for more dynamic range. We have CineStyle for DSLRs, HDRx for RED and S-Log for the Sony F3… the list goes on.
