Re: New Firmware Updates and New "EI S-Log"

OK, the only firmware I played with did allow the use of the gain switch. Perhaps it's different on the release version.

Either way you can turn EI mode on and off so you can choose either method.

Andy, did you get the S-Log with EI tested for actual DR?

I'm very grateful that you test on the scope so your tests are comparable to one another, unlike some other testers. Keep up the good work.

Quote from Andy "When EI mode is on the gain switch does nothing."

Yes, I can confirm that.

Wrong. I have to correct myself on this. You can use HDMI if you don't mind giving up SDI. In other words, when S-LOG is turned on you have to choose SDI or HDMI output, you cannot have both turned on at the same time like you normally can. This adds a wrinkle to the output configuration if you use an HDMI EVF as I do.
