    Frank you mentioned yesterday though you preferred to "starve" the sensor. Do you still feel the same ?

    I think it's probably just because a lot of people aren't used to really what raw is meant to be about.

    Raw files are nothing more than the raw ingredients for a stunning image, cookable to perfection.

    They look a bit soft. Could it be the lens? Ive seen sharper dngs from the camera, for example the train shot in the other thread.

    I think a lot of people are confusing LOG with RAW.

    Most peoples experince of log is a way to compress more DR into bit depth limited video. DNGs and RAW doesn't work this way.

    Sony and Alexa, working on 8 or even 10 bit files use LOG to try to squeeze , more info into a smaller bucket. Now we've got a bigger bucket.

    As beautiful as the RAW is, I will still be forced (by my situation) to shoot either ProRes or DNx. Any hints as to how any of this RAW workflow translates to ProRes and DNxHD? Are the same NDAs that are blocking ProRes samples also stopping the posting of DNxHD footage?

    I don't think 'overexposed' means the same these days as what it did 10 years ago. But you must admit a lot of these shots look pretty bright. Obviously they are not actually overexposed because all the info is there. It's brilliant how much room in the highlights there is.

    The two I posted were pretty spot on for exposure. Didn't have to bring them down.
