    Matching GH5 and Varicam LT
    #1
    Default
    I've got a shoot coming up--interviews and broll--where I'll be using a GH5 (not S as far as I know) with my Varicam LT. Obviously shooting both in v-log would be the best method, but it's not an option in this case as the client's internal video person will be editing and may not be versed in LUTs and color grading. They own the GH5 and want to use it for an interview B cam and some slider stuff. I won't get my hands on it until I walk in that morning.

    Does anyone have experience and/or suggestions for which color profiles will get me closest? I should have time to make some tweaks but I'd love to have a good starting point if anyone has done so before.

    This is corporate, nothing color critical or stylized, so I just need it to look pretty and consistent in-camera, giving them the easiest possible workflow for their internal editor. I often shoot V-look2 for these types of gigs, but certainly open to experimenting with other scenes if they are a good match for GH5.

    Thanks!

    If in doubt, I default to shooting in the natural profile on the Gh5.

    It has served me well.

    Cool. Start each scene change with a few seconds of a passport color chart. It'll make life easier for the editor.
