I am gonna start shooting a documentary next week and our main camera will be the PXW-FS7. I already check many topics, tests and other reviews. I first decided to shoot in 1920 X 1080 in S-LOG 3 / Gamut 3.
Two reasons to that, first one being mobility and also wish to keep an good latitude for the grading at the director looking to a specific style.
Here an example of the kind of footage we looking to end up with
For some of the interview we will have a second camera which will be a Sony A7S. The Director already order a Shogun to go with it. As the A7S is capable of shooting in S-Log 2, I wonder: is the Shogun still relevant? And if I have to keep it, should I still set the camera in the Log mode?
My worries are that the Shogun record only the under-expose, milky footage from the S-log but without the possibilities of grading which are suppose to come along with it.
Then it is possible some day we will have to shoot with C100 but that will become an other problem.
Thanks in advance for your answers
All the best
