Full Event Description:
How to get the best imagery from the F55 and F5 motion picture cameras

The F55 and F5 are incredibly capable motion picture cameras and have been used to shoot many feature films, episodic television shows, documentaries, commercials and much more. They can shoot in 4K, 2K, slow motion, with conventional gammas, Log, 16-bit raw and have the widest color palette of any motion picture camera. This workshop will introduce you to the F55, and F5 that allow you to adjust the way the camera works to suit your workflow. For fast turn-around there is Custom mode where “what you see is what you get”. If you want to get the very best from the camera there is Cine EI mode that maximizes the cameras 14 stop dynamic range. If you are unsure of how to shoot with Log, LUTs or raw this workshop will help guide you. A look at the new Version 7 firmware enabling significantly simplified menu navigation and Rec. 2020 color space will also be demonstrated.

Class Topics will Include:
- Overview of the F55 and F5 motion picture cameras
- When to choose Custom mode and when to shoot with Cine El mode
- Custom mode - choosing the right gamma curve and matrix settings
- Cine El mode - easy ways to get exactly the right exposure
- Understanding Log and Log exposure
- LUTs - using them in camera and in post-production
- Top tips for Center Scan mode, 2K and high speed shooting
