I had the opportunity to shoot side by side with 2 Sony NEX-FS700 camcorders last week. I wanted to compare the profiles against S-LOG 2.
The S-LOG 2 curve wil extend the perceivable dynamic range of the camera so should give more latitude when colour grading.
I’ve always ben impressed with the dynamic range of the FS700 and I usually shoot using Cine Gamma 4 and the Pro or Cinema colour setting.
Once again it was raining in the UK…but this can make for a more dramatic looking sky just not huge contrast to really push the S-LOG 2.
My pal Peter Prevec is due to get the camera next and will also be getting the R5 recorder so hopefully he will get some sunny weather and can test the DR fully. I am off to Australia so will not be here to test but if you are coming to one of my classes then I’ll be showing the full ProRes of these tests I’ll be in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane
