Re: FS7 Colors (was: Budget Camera Skin Tone)

Correct - and as an FS7-specific conversation no disagreement… though I wonder if a Sony O-XCN recorder will be available as a piggy-back the way the Odyssey does… I would think not - why would they cannibalize sales of higher end cameras?
As a side-note - working on a TV show that was shooting Alexa Log C I was shooting some night plates that would need significant manipulation and not baking in exposure is helpful when shooting "available night” - the 16 bit X-OCN LT data rates are comparable to 10 bit AVC - makes it a no brainer especially with night skylines full of all sorts of odd architectural LED colors - why constrain colorspace or bit depth if I didn’t have to for economic reasons (download time and storage)
