    Hey there, been a while!
    Picked up the mk3 late last year to flank my 300mk2 or alexa mini and it's quickly become my favorite camera.

    Parts of this are going into a larger documentary, but thought I would share this little short that was cut together.

    C300mkiii/Zeiss ZE and Celere Primes.
    I shot the reveal sequences and another DP (Robert Swanson) shot the "down the hill" sequence.

    Really nice work. I totally see the Arri characteristics in the C300 MKIII, I just shot a week with it
    and it's a classic, so much nicer than my C200 and 300 MKII.

    I have one little niggle, the image seems a bit too dark and contrasty, it's not bad at all
    but I kept hoping to see a bit more detail in the shadows, that's obviously the grade, not the camera. When
    this was output for YT, did you or whoever edited it do a gamma offset for the QuickTime master to H264 conversion?
    (assuming it was edited and output QuickTime and not PC?)

    I use Compressor to add in a .9 or .8 gamma offset for my H264 social media master as if I don't, I find the H264 on YouTube or Vimeo doesn't look
    like my ProRes master I output from FCP X or Resolve., it will be too slightly too dark like this? Or perhaps this is exactly how you intended for the
    blacks to look? (the H264 output)
    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.
    G.A.S. destroys lives. Stop buying gear that doesn't make you money.

    Nice and dark is how we like it!

    This was a quick turn around; and I've certainly had issues with H264 exports, so I ended up exporting a prores Proxy version and that's what the director uploaded.
