Vlog-L + Panasonic REC709 LUT

These are the colors you get when you shoot with Vlog-L and apply the official Panasonic REC709 LUT. This was shot in ProRes HQ on the Shogun Inferno and the LUT was applied in Resolve with no further adjustment in color:

Re: Vlog-L + Panasonic REC709 LUT

Hi Mark,

Nice test. What/where is the "official Panasonic REC709 LUT"? Is this the V709 Varicam?


Thank You.....

The LUT is supplied by Panasonic specifically for Vlog L for the GH4. Here is the link:

Re: Vlog-L + Panasonic REC709 LUT

Nice bokeh with that lens.

So the monitor on the Inferno gives you good confidence about your exposure when shooting in V-Log L? Are you also using the waveform on the camera?

Do you have a photo of your setup with the camera and Inferno for shooting out in the field?

What is your white balance procedure on a rainy day like this one in the test?

Thanks for the info and your examples.

Re: Vlog-L + Panasonic REC709 LUT

Thank You Mark for the link.

Months ago when I installed the VLog L in the GH4, I already had some LUTs and since have downloaded and tried others, as well as, making some of my own. I didn't remember this specific LUT, because apparently I failed to scroll down the page!!!!

Thank You Again, I'll try this one out.

The Inferno has a waveform and zebra stripes and other exposure aids. I actually shot this video for HDR, and shot ETTR, but given the cloudy skies I decided there was not much point in rendering in HDR. I had a great deal of exposure latitude. AWB was used, as all the scenes were evenly lit and it looked accurate on the monitor (which also shows the VLog L with a Panasonic LUT).

The camera was mounted on a tripod; I handheld the Shogun, attached by an HDMI cable to the camera. I find it easier to shoot and move around this way.

Re: Vlog-L + Panasonic REC709 LUT

This is another example of VLOG L and the Panasonic REC709 LUT, this time in very contrasty settings (bright sun and shade), with a lot more color:

Re: Vlog-L + Panasonic REC709 LUT

I played around with vLog a year ago but gave up as I found grading it a nightmare. The LUT suggested here has been a godsend. Applied to some of that footage I shot back then and finally I have something I can work with. Look forward to trying out things further especially when the GH5 comes around and I can shoot 4:2:2 10 bit.

Even better, the Vlog L REC709 LUT can be applied *in camera* with the GH5, so you can see better what your video will look like in the field, at least as a start.

Viewing VLC videos

Help! I can not view these video samples. I see a black or white screen with the VLC icon. I do have VLC installed on my computer and I use it.

What gives?
