Shot on the Panasonic Lumix S1H and Arri Alexa Mini, this video – shot under difficult COVID lockdown circumstances – enabled me to see how well the Lumix S1H grades with a cine camera.
This is NOT a comparison video, so I won’t be saying which camera shot what clip, but I was very impressed with how well the Panasonic Lumix S1H performed with its fantastic 14+ stops of dynamic range, 12-bit Apple Pro Res Raw codec, and 6K recording.
Checkout Lumix Stories with my background notes, and there will be a BTS video appearing here soon.
Created from a HDR PQ Apple Pro Res 4444 XQ master – edited in FCPX & Colour Finale Pro under the ACES pipeline & ctls (plus a few ACES LUTs/LMTs created with ‘Lattice LUT creator’ and other tools to handle the Pana/Arri IDT to ODT) and then finally transcoded using x265 HEVC 10-bit (Handbrake). The results look fabulous on a HDR device – phone or TV. A SDR Rec709 version will appear here soon….”
