I guess each to his own. Bigger and heavier equipmen,t that now mandates post-processing and extra work to get me to a point that will probably not look as good as the ‘processed’ output direct from the camera. Honestly, it makes no sense for me. I understand that some enjoy this, but I don’t and seeing the overwhelming majority of these attempts fail miserably, certainly gives me no additional incentives to embark on this path.
I long ago gave up caring what those pretentious know-it-alls, on those other forums, tell us to like and not like. The material I’m shooting shows no sign of any plasticky look. In fact, on my OLED, it looks scarily like I remember it looking.
The more I do this, the more I see how overlooked the final display device is in the ‘look’ of what we shoot. To me it far exceeds the relatively minor differences in the cameras we are forever arguing about on this forum. As I watch material on my TV, I often wish that everyone can see it as I’m seeing it. 😊
On a side not, we’ve been watching ‘The Crown’ in 4K (no HDR) on Netflix. The visuals in each and every scene, indoor, outdoor, day or night, are beyond stunning. The lighting, composition and clarity of 4K gives every scene a depth that almost makes your head spin. Not once did I say I wish this were in HDR. In fact the best HDR I’ve seen, doesn’t match the realism, beauty and skill in which this series was shot.
