A DPReview forum member who goes by the user name of iirrbloss writes: Got a newsletter from Atomos saying they’re working on FX3-support with wb/iso-support in FCPX. It’s almost like they’re mocking those who bought the A7SIII. Technically it should be the same firmware fix for both FX3 and A7SIII as the internals are the… Read More
RAW video benefits from noise reduction. However, because denoising can end up softening the image, we’ve got to determine whether or not to add sharpening and if so, how much. In this video, we test drive Final Cut Pro’s built-in noise reduction software. This is one aspect in post where it is really advisable to… Read More
This is just a superficial comparison between Sony a7s III S-Log3 and ProRes RAW HQ. Because I was recording them simultaneously, one internally, the other to a Ninja V, I had to settle on a compromise exposure.

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… Read More
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.… Read More
