Re: Get GH4 V-LOG for FREE !!

Hi folks. I never acquired the V-Log profile for my GH4, but I have a job this week potentially asking for it. Is there any new info now in 2019 with another firmware update on top of 2.4? Also, if I download 2.5, and upgrade from 2.3 (i.e. skip 2.4), can I still purchase V-Log if I go that route?

VLog as a paid update takes ages. You buy it and it's posted to you as an unlock code. Mine for the GH5 and it's the same vLog purchase as the GH4 took weeks to arrive.

I would not bother with 8-bit V-Log for the GH4, instead, I would recommend CineD.

For the GH5 I would recommend HLG instead of V-Log.

Re: Get GH4 V-LOG for FREE !!

Hi Josh,

If V-Log L is required as a part of your shoot, then you could try Adorma or B&H Photo which should be a download activation code rather than getting it from Panasonic.

Using V-Log L I would suggest you also download the V-Log L to Rec 709 LUT from Panasonic (free download) and try it out before your shoot. There is not a huge advantage in dynamic range for the 8 bit internal recording of the GH4 (unleass you have something like the Atomos Ninja Flame recorder for 422 10 bit ProRes for external recording). I over expose about 1 stop which allows pulling for detail out of the shadows a bit easier.

If someone else is doing the post edit and they ask for V-Log L, they will be familiar with the process and I would consult with them for the exposure range they like. Otherwise be advised working with V-Log L during acquisition and post production has a learning curve.

The whole point of filming in log gamma is to protect your highlights and have information to pull your shadows and mids back up to the proper level. If you're overexposing log, then you don't actually need to film in log to begin with.
