Our first 4K test with the F55

Quick test of the F55 on a cold, mostly overcast day. Shot 4K XAVC and edited and graded in FCPX

YouTube may let you play it in 4K!


Or a slightly longer version on Vimeo

Hi Steve. What gamma did you use? If you used log you'll almost certainly get a better grade using the log tools in Resolve. YouTube's 4K is so compressed that it often looks worse than the 1080p.

Re: Our first 4K test with the F55

YouTube & Vimeo just do not cut-it to share results from the new F-series cameras.

Now that we have Sony's new "Content Browser" and Plug-ins for editing suites, is it possible to choose a 10-20 sec source clip(s) and make it/them downloadable? Short downloadable clips would be a useful way of sharing your test results. Cheers.

A twenty second 4K XAVC clip would be about 600MB. That's a lot of data to share.

The Youtube clip was nearly 3GB as a 4K ProRes Quicktime! took about 90 minutes on my fibre connection.

Alister, can't use Resolve very well yet as my MacPro's video card isn't up to it!
