It’s industry practice for outfits like Technicolor to use OLED televisions as consumer reference displays when grading shows for streaming content providers, so why not?

In fact, the iPhone picture puts the LG CX to shame and I can’t recommend it highly enough to those considering making HDR videos for YouTube. In this episode, I also discuss Calman Portrait Displays calibration software, how Safari is the best web browser for viewing my HDR videos in SDR, adjusting color phase and hue to eliminate the green tint when custom white balancing while shooting S-Log3 with the a7s III and adding film grain to footage for a nicer look.
