    The Log C encoding has a linear exposure, grayscale characteristic similar to a scan from negative film. There is no highlight rolloff in Log C except at 3200. Below 1600, maximum exposure does not...

    F5/F55/F65 do their raw debayer in post. Does the FX9 do that after having downsampled the sensor to 4K? How is that possible? Is this linear raw? Will you need AXS R7 recorder ($6,980)? I asked too...

    For me it does more than that. I was a lot closer to unloading a bunch of great EF mount "L" lenses than to investing in RF. The RF system future proofs against previous disappointing Canon mirrored...
