3D LUT FILES FROM CONVERGENT DESIGN (SLOG-2 / REC709)
FS700 RAW files are Linear, thus the files need a Gamma 2.2 correction in order to look correct. You may notice when you first import your files that they appear very dark before correction
Compact Flash is a great choice for most compressed recorders, but it simply lacks the required performance for uncompressed video. Compact Flash tops out at about 90 Mbytes/sec, while uncompressed video ranges from 100 to over 300 Mbytes/sec; so clearly, it’s impossible to record uncompressed video onto a single CF card. Additionally, CF card capacity maxes out at 128GB, while SSDs are now available up to 512GB.
VMI offers the 256GB (1.8″) as a good universal storage size.
As standard, the 4K on board recorders are being supplied with 3 x 256GB storage
256GB SSD storage → 32 minutes @ 1080p24 4:2:2, 10-bit
256GB SSD storage → 13 minutes @ 4K Canon RAW 24p 4:2:2, 10-bit
Thus, you have sufficient storage of 90 minutes of 1080p with 3 x drives and more storage is available at an additional charge, however if you are shooting 4K, then the data files are really large.
However, you have the capability of shooting 2K DPX files off board in 12 bit sampling which offers far greater recording durations and extremely high quality.
A 4K Prores recording option is expected at some point soon and will offer a more efficient codec and longer recording times as well.
