If you're shooting motion (video) with the new Sony, the general preference is to shoot with the S-Log gamma profile to have a more gradable footage. Just setting this required much internet digging. Apparently, it's in Picture Profile #7.
I was wondering, though, if anyone has tried this for stills?
One of the strange things is that the setting forces the ISO to 800. The sensitivity, however, is a full two stops less than using No Picture Profile. Another oddity, is that the image has the same lack of noise as ISO 100.
In the stills, I do feel like hilights have a gentler roll-off.
What do you think? Go play!
