I talk about shooting 8-bit HLG HDR video with the a7 III, VESA’s meaningless HDR specs, my brand new gimbal, lenses I seldom shot with before and why I’m using them now, rec.709 and the film look, the best way to evaluate your lenses, the glaring absence of affordable HDR grading monitors and whether dust is really an issue for filmmakers shooting with the Sony a7 III.

Saigon in HLG HDR

More luscious HDR goodness, this time shot with the 16-35mm GM, 50mm f/1.4 Planar and 85mm f/1.8 lenses. Mostly architecture around Ho Chi Minh City from the French colonial era. Forget everything you heard about HLG being backward compatible: the clip must be viewed on an HDR display or it will look dreadful.
