    worth every penny, especially this latest iteration. kholi sinks an extraordinary amount of time into developing and testing these.

    i use these exclusively, especially when i have to record colored footage for broadcast clients. i've had producers consistently remark on how good image is coming out of the pocket 4k and UMP with these LUTs

    I use the hell out of the older version with my BMCC and Pockets.
    Like Adam E said - I agree that this lut is one that actually can be the majority of your color work on a shot. When I've used it, I have only had to do minor adjustments and the piece is done.

    The version called "Strong" makes people go "Oooooh..."

    Kholi's LUTs are the best of the best. The LUTs pay for themselves the very first time you use it. Saving at least one hour of trying to get a grade right = $40 Plus, you can charge your clients more because the footage looks like a million bucks.

    I think in general, the LUT market has been distorted. For example you can download "LUT packs" from stock sites. Often these "LUTs" are just basic tweaks to the gamma / RGB curve, and many cases make the footage look way WORSE in my opinion.

    Would you put a $3 UV filter from a Chinese Amazon vendor in front of a $2000 prime lens, in front of a BMP4k sensor? Likewise, cheap LUTs can ruin amazing footage.
    If you have a premium quality camera, just finish the job with a premium LUT, and start charging premium prices for your services, to multiply your money back.

    Is there any more information on what the BASE LUT does? Seems like we make our corrections between that and the LOOK LUT (if we use one), but just wanted to be sure what it's doing.

    EDIT: Oh, more to the topic: these look fantastic. Kholi has always done great work, but these are my favorite of his.
