What is S-Log2 gamma?

What is S-Log2 gamma?

Log gamma, such as Sony’s S-Log2, allows the camera to capture a much greater brightness range or dynamic range than is possible when shooting with conventional television gamma. Dynamic range is the range from light to dark that the camera can capture or the range that the monitor or TV can display within one image.

What does S log stand for?

S-Log is a gamma curve designed to record and transmit as much of the information recorded by your camera’s sensor as possible. S-Log breathes life into your images by preserving the wide colour gamut and dynamic range recorded by the sensor.

Should I shoot in s log?

The many advantages of shooting in S-Log Shoot with a combination of S-Log and S-Gamut, and your material can retain a wider color gamut, dynamic range, and tonal range than with traditional techniques. This image information provides exceptional flexibility in color grading, as you give scenes the look you envisioned.

Which is the gamma curve for s-log 3?

[ITU709(800%)] is a gamma curve for easily previewing a level of gradation equivalent to that of an image recorded using [S-Log2] or [S-Log3] and graded to ITU709.

What do you need to know about gamma on s-log?

For on set monitoring with S-Log you need to apply a LUT (look Up Table) to the cameras output. A LUT is in effect a reverse gamma curve that cancels out the S-Log curve so that the image you see on the monitor is closer to a standard gamma image or your desired final pictures.

What’s the difference between s-log and s-gamut?

S-Log is a gamma curve that is optimized under the assumption that grading will be performed in the post-production process. S-Gamut is color reproduction that is supposed to be used together with S-Log.

Which is better S log2 or s log3?

S-Log is a gamma curve with a wide dynamic range optimized under the assumption that grading will be performed in the post-production process. S-Log3 allows for better reproduction of gradation characteristics in shadows and the mid-tone range than S-Log2. It has characteristics closer to those of scanned film.
