Thanks, have you tried to grade the same scene in the showreel video which is 420? Do you find it less gradable?

Since this Shogun Showreel contains footage from Eric Cheng, most people on Wetpixel must have seen it already.


1:02 into the video - such impressive dynamic range.




CORRECTION: The GH4 and A7s were mentioned on the page, but I just realized only A7s ProRes 8bit 422 footage appeared in the video credit, not the GH4 10bit 422.

Thanks, the original footage that can be downloaded is 420 while you can download the 422 version here


I tried to grade them with Pr CS6 to make a comparison but I did not find much differences, maybe I used The wrong tool, not very sure.

It is rather difficult to find the right dome port/extension/diopter combination for 17-40. I use a 17-40 and a tokina 10-17 with my 5D3. 10-17 has much better corner sharpness but sometimes I find it too wide for objects like sharks and rays.

I read in this forum that the new 16-35 F4 is better.

GH4/Shogun 10bit 422 and 8bit 422 are both capable of producing great results even when pushed hard, but not so much with 8bit 420: GH4/Shogun 10bit 422 vs. GH4/Shogun 8bit 422 vs. GH4 8bit 420.

Thanks guys, after used LX100 in a trip I miss my 5D3 with magic lantern installed very much.
I need a 4K camera with better low light and with more gradable output. EOS-1Dc or A7S/GH4 with Shogun...I will make up my mind before my next trip, thanks.

Does 10bit 422 really help you in color correcting underwater footage?
