In Topic: V-Log is coming to GH4 in October

I had good results with filter plus manual white balance. How do you feel about that?

 

 

I've got Alex's magic filters (both the Green and Blue water) for the 8mm filter holder - which I've fitted to my 7-14mm so will try those for sure. My recent diving trips have been too deep for the filters, so hoping the relatively shallow Truk wrecks will be okay for ambient lighting / filters. I'm seriously looking at the Cyan bulbs for my Keldans also.

I don't think the issue can be resolved with slog. Best way forward is to buy canon or Sony. The new a6xxx is due and will have 60p 4K video

 

Intercepter, I probably agree there! I'm a bit too invested in m43 lenses and housings to just jump ship now - so will make do with what I've got.. but I think it was Oceanshutter? or someone who filmed in Truk of the bomber and the colours blew me away... no filters, no lights just MWB... I'm off there next month again, so will try again :D

 

Richard, did you have luck with the GH4 1DC LUT thing from EOSHD?

 

 

No, I didn't - I haven't got 'wet' for a while now (teaching the wife to dive, so no camera...) and as I don't have a canon in a housing to compare against I wasn't sure if it was worth all the effort with VLOG being around the corner.

This is all in all good news for those who know what they are doing with Log footage and good news to see they are eeking out some more life from the GH4.

 

However.. I still would love to read / discuss about actual use of Log footage underwater, as at the moment I'm trying to nail colors 'in-camera' before hitting FCPX.

 

I can't find much information on any RED, Alexia, Log-C being filmed underwater, and with the massive WB issues - will we really benefit?

 

So we get 12 stops, better highlight rolloff, but have they fixed the color science of the camera?

As if I'm honest, I've seen on here canon footage (non-log) underwater and it looks utterly fantastic compared Panasonic colors. If they have - it will be mega.
