    So here is a quick little test comparison between S-Log and PanaLog.

    Recorded on Hyperdeck / Uncompressed / Ungraded

    It was compressed to .h264 for vimeo. Vimeo did some weird compression in the first seconds. But you can see the difference between S-Log and PanaLog.


    1st clip is always S-Log
    2nd clip is always PanaLog

    What is your opinion about the two?

    Well, I'd definitely say that the S-Log is more flat and would need more grading and with the PanaLog you have an almost "graded" look, with more details and contrast. I will do some more testing and will put up a graded version of both, to see any differences. It could be, that PanaLog already looks a little bit "graded", in order to have a quicker grading process in the end. Not sure about that.

    I have graded both files with the exact same procedure in DaVinci. I saved the grade of the S-Log and added the exact same correction to the PanaLog. I used a Kodak Visioncolor Impulz Lut as a Film Negative Emulation in Cineon Log as a base node. I then graded. As a final node I applied a Kodak Film Print Emulation.


    It looks like the PanaLog gives an overall boost in the highlights and midtones. You can see the difference on the right hand corner in the trees. The highlights in the trees are blown out in the PanaLog. The overall image also seems more contoured.


    The "shining" added in the PanaLog is nice, but am not sure whether I would use S-Log or PanaLog for a feature.






    1st still is S-Log
    2nd still is PanaLog

    I believe Panalog was designed to use as much of the available recording medium as possible, where Sony chose to leave some wiggle room. I'm not sure why.

    Panalog was pretty much designed to be used in conjunction with a GDP or something similar.

    I much prefer the highlights in S-log. Don't see any appeal in Panalog.

    Were you ever able to extract the PanaLog from the camera or replicate it in CVP file editor? I'm trying to find it to run my own tests on my F23. I reached out to my friends at Panavision and have yet to hear back.

    I was able to get PanaLog from another DVXuser and i'm doing some private tests to get a workflow down and am really amazed by the results. Once I have some time to shoot something solid I will share a video with you guys.

    Share when you can Mike. Curious as to what you find out.
    How are you using the GDP processor?
