Thanks a lot Guy!
I'll take a good look and promise to use my calibrated monitor to you justice ;)
That would be nice to see :-)
We will just have to wait and see how well it grades with the different luts. All in all it boils down to personal taste and creative choice and where your personal limit goes for how "video sharp" you like your footage. And if you are shooting a music video og a interview :)
I only have Nikon and Canon Lenses Both Ef & FD, and love the fd look very much. I haven't tried the old Nikon lenses yet but want to get my self a 50mm soon.
The only Olympus lens I have is the 12mm f2 and have had both great and not so great results, depending upon the circumstances. But all in all I'm happy with it at 3.2 and up.
Where can I see some of your work using the graded Neutral profile?
I can't seem to find any links on your profile..
What a shame. It's just too much at times even with the sharpen all the way down.
And thanks for a lot og good advise here :)
- But I don't like the midtones in the Natural Profile I also never turn down the contrast as I think it introduces noise when adding it back compared to letting it be at 0 while capturing. I have been shooting with Standard 0, -5, -5, 0, 0 for 6 months with very fine results but just went back to Cinelike D 0, -5, -5, -5, 0 due to a new LUT workflow.
Panasonic just released a V-log to v709 lut for the V-log profile some days ago, and I belive that that is more correct than Alexa luts. I have been playing around with that and the Cineon converter scince the V-log will take the characteristics as cineon:
This from Panasonic:
In response to the demand from the film production market, log video recording (V-Log L) is now available for the LUMIX GH4, and offers exceptional flexibility as well as wider dynamic range for color grading in post-production process. V-Log / V-Log L were developed to feature similar characteristics to Cineon, which is a characteristic curve for film digitalization. Taking full advantage of Four Thirds sensor, V-Log L boasts a log characteristic with 12 stops. Both V-Log and V-Log L have the same characteristic curve, and LUT (Look Up Table) can be utilized.

Shame about the video look in this device :)
That happens to me sometimes, at 25p 180d, but mostly while editing and not so much in my final output. So could it be that your render settings are off somehow?
