How To Work With 8-Bit 4:2:0 in Camera

I had to move this from Questions to Discussions because of the confusion and because I wanted to discuss more so than ask a question. Unfortunately, this website does not have a delete post button, so I'm here. How do you work with 8-bit 4:2:0? Here is how: With 8-Bit 4:2:0 in camera, what that means is that in-post you would have to add the darker underexposed look instead of having it in camera. With 8-bit 4:2:0 your camera is having a hard time reading color, so let it read color easier. Put the subject that is more in color in good amount of light. Make what's supposed to be in-camera, in front of the camera first in terms of a usable image, then dial the settings, not the other way around. To prove what I say even further I at one point put a jar of jelly beans of many colors is in shadow and how much noise and how much of a hard time the camera is reading it in high ISOs, I then put the jar of jelly beans closer to a good amount of light and thus the camera read the colors easier and there was less noise on the jelly beans. Okay I have to admit, what I say is kind of confusing to people reading this what 8-bit 4:2:0 is. Here is a video explanation about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prlQCQHLz8o&list=TLPQMDUxMDIwMjB2HlIrJYt...
