Take My Money!
At just $6499 for a set of six lenses - 25/35/50/75/100/125mm T2.1 (PL or EF) - that's what I paid for my Veydras back in the day! https://youtu.be/XFsmTXLc2Hw
Sony a7s III HDR
The Sigma 85 is simply unbelievable! That and the a7s III are a dream combo. Shot with XAVC S-I 600M 10-bit 4:2:2 at 60p. https://youtu.be/SfWp4OUdumQ
a7s III Too Popular – Even Atomos Can’t Get One!
Those ProRes RAW HQ files are incredible. Far from the most photogenic human bean on earth, but when shooting with the a7 III, my skin always looked splotchy. a7s III skin tones are a ginormous improvement. Meanwhile, I’m still awaiting answers to a couple of questions about the Ninja V, in particular about the zebras... Continue Reading →

Free Downloadable a7s III HDR Footage!
Shot with the Sigma FE 85mm f/1.4 DG DN, the sharpest 85mm lens in the E-mount system, with incredible autofocus speed and accuracy and recorded in 4K ALL-I, the highest quality, least compressed internal codec of the a7s III, and the gold standard for digital cinema.

a7s III Shoots Some Stunning HDR!
At long last, we've got a bunch of models lined up! The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG DN is one spectacular lens and the autofocus performed nearly flawlessly this morning (speed and sensitivity both set to 5). What's amazing is how tenacious eye detect AF is, even when overexposing S-log3 by a couple of stops. I'd... Continue Reading →
How to Work With ProRes RAW HQ In FCP X
Working with ProRes RAW in FCP X couldn't be simpler. Pretty much every clip I've shot with the a7s III, whether internally or externally to the Ninja V, skin tones have been falling directly on the skin tone line in the vectorscope, something that I couldn't be certain of when shooting with the a7 III....

More HDR Tests
I shot S-log3 XAVC S-I this afternoon, making sure to ETTR, with zebras set to 94%. After pulling down highlights and boosting saturation a smidgen, I think I'm seeing some banding in the wall to the right behind me (over my left shoulder). Aside from that, I'm very pleased at how the image turned out:... Continue Reading →
That’s Not HDR, It’s Too Dark! Analyzing a Scene
While grading my most recent S-log3 HDR video, I realized I'd failed to reduce brightness levels down to proper values in my previous ProRes RAW HQ HDR sample. In both videos, I'm wearing an orange cap and black jacket and sitting in a dark room a few feet away from a window on an overcast... Continue Reading →
Things Are Shaping Up
The a7s III has lots going for it: superb eye detect autofocus in video at up to 120 fps, an articulating touch screen LCD, indisputably the best EVF of any mirrorless camera, edit-friendly codecs with tiny file sizes, the red frame that surrounds the image in the LCD when you're recording video, a full size...

a7s III ProRes RAW HQ HDR Grade Reveal
In FCP X, I set the library to Wide Gamut HDR, the project to Rec. 2020 PQ, RAW to log conversion and Camera LUT to Sony S-log3/S-Gamut3.Cine, pulled down the highlights (from 2K nits to 400 nits) and shadows with the color wheels, added noise reduction (high) and sent to Compressor. I uploaded to YouTube... Continue Reading →
