    Lightform Features at a glance:

    RELIGHT Enhanced Dynamic Range
    Canon cameras have plenty of precious data hidden in the highlights.
    The only way to deploy it is to edit RAW photos or via a picture style that is able to take advantage of it.
    Lightform enhances the sensor's dynamic range by bringing down that useful data to a more visible range, before compression.
    As result, you get advantage of the full latitude of the sensor with a more faithful to reality dynamic range and more detail in the image upper range.

    RESKIN
    Yellow, orange and red spots in the highlights, unnaturally saturated skin tones..
    Those are all problems that will make you crazy when you will try to eliminate them in post.
    Again, unless you edit the RAW photos, they will be printed to file and stay there to create problems.
    Lightform does all the work before compression, to deliver the best, most gorgeous skin tones out of the box. We tested it on models of all races, and in dark to bright conditions.
    True Colors that can let you spare hours of color correction.

    REGRADE
    Color grading is all about headroom.
    Thanks to the Lightform's headroom feature, you can, in post, rise the video level without destroying the highlights, and you can adjust the balance without overdriving colors.
    Of course Lightform can be used with -4 contrast for a greater latitude or at 0 contrast for a balanced, final look out of the box. The headroom is always present at all contrast settings.

    CINEMA Option
    As asked by many users, there must be a neutral version. So Lightform comes in 2 flavours:
    Lightform C (Cinema)
    with an enhanced version of the highly successful look of the Cineplus CINEMA Picture Style.
    Lightform N
    with neutral, untouched colors, for those who want full control of the image in post production.

  5. All shots apart from 2.20 - 2.30 (which were shot on the BMCC) are UNGRADED, straight from 5D II. I will upload a Graded version soon.

    Shot using magic lantern and Lighform picture profiles. All shots are hand-held, unstabilised so as such do not represent final camerawork output but are to test and demonstrate the Samyang cine prime lenses in different situations.

    Lenses used:

    Samyang 24mm T/1.5 (F/1.4), 35mm T/1.5 (F/1.4) 85mm T/1.5 (F1.4) and 14mm T/3.1 (F/2,8)
