V-Log profile tests graded with VLog_to_V709_for_V35_ver100
There’s been huge excitement about the new V-Log picture profile amongst Panasonic’s GH4 owners.
V-Log supposedly adds at least 2 more stops of DR to the GH4. Though it’s tricky to expose correctly though. If you expose it normally it produces heavy noise in the shadows. So after a little testing I’ve found that by exposing higher than you would expect. Right up until the highlights are nearly blown out.
Now the image looks overexposed, but I can adjust that in colour correction. Also when I bring down my exposure in grading, this also crushed down the dark areas, where you get the noise.
So here’s my tests.
