Here’s a screen grab from the model shoot yesterday, shot with the Sony a7 III, FE 85mm f/1.8, Hoya ND8, S-log2, ISO 800, f/6.3 and graded with Leeming LUT Pro. Very excited about the new LUTs, and S-log2 is now my very favorite picture profile; but the banding in the sky just kills it for me: which is why I’m waiting on either the EOS R6 or Sony a7s III. It’s unbelievable that until they’re released, the only full frame ILC with reliable autofocus that shoots 10-bit runs $6,500.00! Concerning the color accuracy of the shots I took that day, the skin tones fall dead center on the skin tone line of the vectorscope; the colors of the chairs – sky blue, olives and yellows – are also extremely accurate, vivid, intense, I love it; the same goes for the characteristic pastels of the buildings in the distance. Oh, and I’m really impressed with the way highlight detail that looks blown-out can be recovered in post.
And here’s the video:
