A7S S-Log footage

Does anyone have any footage from a A7S, just wanted to see how the footage holds up to grading, etc?

Because it seems the output through HDMI won't allow true S-Log by the comments I've seen, so wanted to see how the in camera holds up to colour grading and how much leeway you get with it.

Re: A7S S-Log footage

There are a couple of links on dvinfo where you can download A7S footage, 24p and 50p but I can't currently locate them. Seeing you are in the UK I have re-uploaded the 50p footage from one of the Dutch posters who kindly posted a link to this footage originally. Included is an MP4 encoded at 5000 kbps where I had quick play at having a grade of the material. I found the footage quite solid to work with in spite of it being 8-bit.

Re: A7S S-Log footage

Thanks, I'll take a look. I was just wondering if with it being only 8 bit, it would be that good at grading, as it seems may struggle to get 10bit out of it with the current issue of the HDMI not outputting the correct range of the S-log to the external recorders.

Re: A7S S-Log footage

The A7s has no ten bit capability. It is HDMI 8-bit only although it is 4:2:2.
If you are interested in how to handle and get the best out of the footage from the A7s Alistair has done a pretty comprehensive job in covering these topics.
