Sony S-log2 + Athena LUT

I still see lots of YouTubers grossly underexposing their S-log footage, which leads to a bunch of noise to deal with in post. Here’s an example of a correctly exposed clip along with a screen grab from the same video on YouTube. Incidentally, prior to Athena, whether shooting Cine2, HLG or S-log, previous LUTs required extensive color correction to balance out the crazy tones in my admittedly less than pristine complexion; whereas now I can pretty much just begin grading, which is a huge timesaver!
