Shoot S-LOG 2 with the Sony a7S

!! Please do extensive testing before using S-LOG 2 for a paid gig !!

When shooting in S-LOG 2 (PP7 / Picture Profile 7) the native ISO is 3200, which means that you will need a lot of ND filtering to use it outside in bright daylight.

Above is a short and very unscientific example of ungraded and graded recording from the a7S.

1. Picture Profile: Switch to PP7 (check the picture gallery for directions)

2. Aperture: Set the desired aperture

2. Exposure: Set the exposure, using the ISO button, so you get M.M +2.0 in the bottom of the screen. Dont go more than 2 stops over, since you will start loosing texture in the brighter areas of skin.

3. Zebras: some use 70% and make sure to they don’t show up on skin highlights, some use 100% and make sure they never show up at all.

4. White Balance: set the right white balance

5. Start shooting

I use Color Finale to grade the footage and apply a LUT. I use AriLuts, DELUTS from James Miller or Osiris from Vision Color depending on which look I want.
