I went out in the car this morning to try to capture some of that magic of fall season. Shot in V-Log L with the GH4R and Atomos Shogun, Voigtländer Nokton 17.5mm f/0.95 lens and a Genus Eclipse Vari-ND. I didn't have much time to shoot and quite frankly that golden hour when everything comes around, is brief. I shot this with WB 7500K and 6500K, depending on time and scene, ISO 400. Exposure by heart, but mostly between +1 and +3 EV on the meter, with an eye on the scope.
Shooting V-Log L with 10-bit ProRes 422 is simply fantastic, if you master the craft. Exposure and proper WB is key. I am holding my first GH4 V-Log workshop this Saturday October 17th at Scandinavian Photo in Oslo, Norway. (scandinavianphoto.no)
It'll be a one hour film session going through exposure, WB, working with recorders etc. Followed by a one hour session of grading, film simulation and general workflow for proper V-Log recording with the GH4. I am seeing an increasing number of horrible examples of shooting and grading V-Log, some would even claim that the Panasonic supplied stock LUT for the Varicam35 and GH4/DVX200 is faulty. Well, don't be fooled by the noises from the crowd.
The V-Log LUT is a great reference and I uses it here as a base for grading. From what I've heard, Filmconvert will soon come out with an updated camera pack with V-Log profile. I am using Filmconvert with the ARRI Alexa R.709 profile with great success on top of the V-Log LUT.
Make sure to download the master ProRes Proxy 4K original file for much higher quality than the Vimeo HD streaming!
