Canon C300 Cinema log test
This is a test I shot with the Canon C300 recently, in order to evaluate the Cinema log gamma.
I used the Cinema locked mode in comparison to my usual shooting mode (Cine2 gamma, Normal4 color matrix, Sharpening -2) and shot an extremely contrasty scene (relatively dark room and bright highlights outside).
I used ISO850 and set the exposure with the help of the built-in waveform monitor.
Please choose 1080p resolution to see the results, the difference is more than obvious, even with compressed youtube footage.
The final grading is not exact, (and obviously it is not meant to match the two shooting modes), it is only to explore the possibilities that the original footage gives.
Lens: Canon 24/1.4, colour grading in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5
