Panasonic GH4 firmware with VLog-L

This is a (pretty boring) test of the new LOG profile coming to the Panasonic GH4. We were able to preview this on pre-release firmware from Panasonic, and the results are impressive. Vastly improved dynamic range makes it far easier to hold the highlights compared to Cinelike-D. Shadows are noisier, but it's worth it for all the detail you get. Grading was done entirely in Final Cut Pro X, so it's nothing too crazy, but should still illustrate the benefits of LOG over Cinelike-D.

I doubt that the shadows are any noisier once the footage has been properly delogged. Panasonic could assist their GH4 user base by providing 3D.cube luts to delog the footage in post before grading. Luts do a better job of remapping the the gray scales into the appropriate IRE levels, than trying to do that with grading tools like gain, offset, gamma etc.
