So here's some beauty shot I did with the 7Q. FS700 wth Tokina 11-16 f2.8, Canon 24-105 f4 + Speedbooster, Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS II + Speedbooster
First of all, I want to say I am really, really impressed by the footage quality. It is light years better than the internal AVCHD. 7Q is definitely well worth the money IMO. The team at Convergent did a super great job.
I shot it 2K RAW, then exported to 4:2:2 10-bit and some 4:4:4 12-bit Pro-Res from Resolve with the S-Log profile from Resolve. Unfortunately, at this time I could not grade in Resolve because I had to use a computer at the Studio I freelance at and I only had it for a day. I have a new Mac coming in 1 week or so that will run Resolve. The Pro-Res clips were graded in After Effects. I shot 60, 120 and 240 fps. It would be nice to grade directly from the RAW clips. The big issue with Resolve is that it has very specific system requirements and older Macs (like the one I have) cannot run Resolve. Kind of sucks I had to buy a new computer just to transcode footage, but I guess I was due anyways.
I did a very basic grade for this test. Just adjusted the levels and added saturation. On the end sunset shots, I added a little red, but since this was a 7Q footage test, I wanted to see what the colors were like without stylizing them. Usually, I tend to keep things less saturated and lower contrast. But this time I definitely bumped up the contrast and added more saturation than usual, just to see how the footage holds up. It held up INSANE and grades so well.
With S-Log2 and the 7Q, the colors and image just have so much more latitude in post. The image just has more substance, if that's the right word.
If you own an FS700, the 7Q is a must have.
