I use the Ninja Blade on an F3, which is great for recording prores. However does anyone know a recorder that has built in viewing luts ( rec 709) to make working with S-log a little easier?

Or has anyone got experience of a Lut box used on camera?

Convergent Design (Odyssey 7), Video Devices (PIX-E5), and some of the newer Atomos products have LUTs for S-log built in. We used the two former recorders with Sony cameras this last weekend.

Thanks for the info...do you think it would be possible to hand calibrate from slog input to a screen rec709 viewing lut using the Blades colour controls?

Generally, no you can't use normal monitor controls like brightness, contrast, saturation, and tint to correct log images back to rec709. You can sort of approximate it if you want, but not accurately enough to judge color or exposure. You need an actual conversion LUT to do the job.

Thanks for all the info guys. ..thanks Robin, the LUT viewing problem is the only shorcoming of the F3 as far as I can find, I'll get there somehow!
