LUTs, alternate gammas and S&Q are working on the camera I have. No histogram, waveform or spot meter which is means no level metering other than zebras, which only go down to 50%. No way to use a grey gard without external metering.

Is it possible pre-production model will differ from shipped product? Firmware release table shows user gammas coming in v1.2 and SLOG LUTs coming in v1.3.

I'm sure the first production versions will have all the selectable standard gammas, hypergammas and S-Log2 along with a basic set of S-Log to 709 LUTs. The camera I have even has step gamma and gamma gain controls.

It's very unusual for pre-production cameras to have functions not in the final production cameras, it's normally the other way around.

I hope the do give us a histogram, spot meter or WFM at some stage, really do need at least one of them.
