CRFTSHO  is at it again, spreading falsehoods about HLG, saying it uses less of the color space of the GH5 sensor than V-Log, which simply is not true. They might come across as more credible if they had the footage to back up their claims, but their ugly, blurry, poorly exposed shots of Christmas tree lights are just plain horrid.

  1. Let’s play. What misinformation? The colorspace of hlg is limited inside of Rec 709. Hlg is a 2020 color. Yeah sorry about the holidays. We really didn’t have a ton of time to get out and stage some shots. Wanted to spend time with our families.

    How can we improve?

    1. First of all, HLG uses more of the 10-bit space than V-Log Lite, resulting in smoother tonal transitions. Secondly, at least one of the shots I recall seeing in your video taken with HLG, which supposedly was made with the identical settings as V-Log Lite, was extremely underexposed when compared to the V-Log Lite image – to the best of my recollection, it looked like a complete silhouette – giving the impression that HLG is unsuitable for video. I’ll admit to being rather harsh, but sharing images like that is likely to discourage filmmakers from taking advantage of HLG and the incredible color and tonality it’s capable of. The other misinformation as I see it, regarding another video you made, concerns the ‘battle’ between HLG, HDR10 and whatever else is out there, when in fact Dolby Vision, HLG and HDR10 can coexist peacefully: the first is for the major studios with money to purchase a license; the second is primarily for broadcast and is useful because it’s somewhat backwards compatible; and the third is for everyone else. I can’t tell you how to run your channel, but if you’re genuinely asking me how I think you could improve, I’d say, don’t rush work out that’s not representative of the best you can do. And I’ve seen much better from you in the past.
