You make the assumption that the cameras internal colour science in moving from native sensor colourspace to a defined log colourspace does the job well. As you know there are many ways to massage a larger gamut into a smaller one and not all are good. Just saying that on these older Sonys i don't think they did such a good job and the evidence was easily seen side by side. Now things move on and change and i'm just talking about FS700/FS7.

Alistair makes a great point about ProRes RAW. I have no experience of that.

Also even though the cDNG from the O7Q were uncompressed versions of compressed Sony RAW they could still be compressed in post by about 40%.

To be honest it's sort of the same data rates as R3D, so not an insane amount these days.

I would imagine then a FS700 with the Atomos recorders would be a great combination
