Slog only with the 7Q and FS700?

Just got my 7Q and have been testing it with the FS700 for a short time - and am wondering why it insists on the S-Log2 gamma?

We shoot mainly corporate videos, and, from my admittedly limited knowledge of S-log2, it seems to add significantly to post production workflow and makes exposure judged from the monitor tricky.

I've been very happy shooting with the FS700 using a cine gama (recording internally) up until now. Recording that uncompressed or with more bandwidth in say something like a PopularResourceful codec would be nice.

Will there (or is there) an option for other gamas with the 7Q in FS700 mode?

Thanks

Shaun

Re: Slog only with the 7Q and FS700?

I believe once they implement the new codecs it will be able to record any valid SDI signal. Of course that would only be 8bit 4:2:2 1080P off the FS700 in HD. The only way the FS700 will output anything else than the standard signals is using SLog 2 so that is a camera limitation I think.

I thought they had a LUT that made monitoring easy although maybe the SLog2 one isn't on there yet?
