It's quite normal to use a camera built for RAW with a baked in look. We do this with Red cameras all the time if needed by clients.
The same is possible with the UM46, but unfortunately you'll need an external recorder like the Atomos Shogun until now. It takes looks you design in Resolve, can store a few of them for different scenarios and load them for recording. And, yes, you can easily design a better LUT that the "Video" setting in BM's cameras.
I don't see how you can do baked in and RED unless you're talking about...proxies ? Editing RED natively ? ( which for me isn't baked in)
The new cameras shoot ProRes (2K-4K; depends on model)...but I don't think that's what he meant since we're talking RAW.
I read Ansel Adams worked as a commercial photographer, in addition to his "creative" work, and was constantly under financial duress until late in life. A still photographer in the first half of the 20th century would develop their work- most every still photographer had their own darkroom, no?
As a freelancer in the NYC market, the popular workflow leaves me out of the post process with most of the work i do. Also producers will simply not pay for the RAW post workflow- "Prores please." 90% of the requests are LOG in PRORES at UHD resolution.
If you get to shoot RAW and supervise the grade with most of the paid work you do- I am GREEN with envy!
What I wonder, in view of Alan Roberts' disinclination to get into post-production evaluations, is whether his RAW findings hold up -- is there really a stop more of DR in raw than Prores, after Prores has been normalized and (if necessary) graded for maximum range?
Doesn't the BM recent firmware update allow you to load up LUTS or is it just for monitoring purposes only. Sometimes I crave for the Baked look from the likes of canon, where the colors are just Vivid and Bold. Always find it hard to replicate this in post. I noticed that Red Cams & Arri seem to produce that baked vivid look when needed. I will love BM to improve the Video format on their cams or if someone can come up with a LUT that can create the broadcast baked in look
Sadly, another credit to add to Alan Smithee's body of work.
