    This is Melanie Hardage second original piece. The handheld camera using manual focus with the obviously better color is the XF705. The only manipulation of the file was to convert it to ProRes 422 HQ and then encode it to MP4 30 mbs for YouTube.

    The 3rd video in the above list has a brief opening with an A7r3 clip. The remainder of the video is 100% XF705 being used handheld in manual focus mode with the gain set to +12 db. Autofocus assist was not used while in manual mode.

    FWIIW: Adobe Media Encoder will not transcode the BT.2020 color space XF HEVC files. Media Encoder works only for the sRGB.709 color space MXP HECV files.

    Is that table actually blue or is it white, cause it looks very blue.

    The table is exactly the shade of faded turquoise blue that it appears in the video. I am impressed with color fidelty and shadow detail. One can see good shadow detail in the porch through the arches at the same time that one can see the perfectly exposed white brick wall and white clouds. As long as the aperture is f4.8 or higher, zooming the full range does not detectably change the exposure reading of the gray target on the WFM. The entire sunlight portion of the video, through all the zooming, was shot with the same exposure settings with the aperture set at f5.6.

    Thanks for posting. Nice looking footage. I do think it is odd to need such small apertures to stop the lens ramping. f4.8 and indoor filming just sounds like a horrible combination. I am sure the gain can male up the difference it just sounds like the camera will always need a fair amount of gain when shooting indoors or not in sunlight.

    Thanks. Yes you are right about using the gain to compensate for the ramping in lower light levels with larger apertures. F4.8 is the largest aperture that does not ramp.
