          Doug,

          Very nice footage, well executed. I do have a question, as I am considering this camera. Some of the footage looks like it was shot slightly overexposed and pulled back in post, or pushed to the point where the whites have crushed. Can you answer if the camera does this natively, even if shot is slog?

          Thanks

          Andrew

            No S-Log on the Z150...Doug has to pull out the F55 for that

              Thanks for the compliment. As NorBro says, the Z150 does not have a LOG mode or even Hypergammas. So the biggest problem with the Z150 is it's very limited dynamic range. Very limited compared to the other cameras I own. So, while almost nothing was clipped when I shot it, I did have to make some compromises in post to find a middle ground between excessive highlights or crushed shadows. It's possible that some shots could have been graded better but I didn't have much time for this project -- so it is what it is. But you are correct, there are issues.

                Doug, what you can do is to create a custom transparent png file (for instance by using PhotoShop) with your watermark.
                I would recommend very thin sparsely repeating lines interrupted by text or your business logo or even your name, and the more transparent you make or the more off-center you place it the harder it is to notice.

                To process this you merge the png file with your video like so:

                ffmpeg -i your_video.mp4 -i your_watermark.png -filter_complex "overlay=0:0" out.mp4

                Here is a little example I made with my name and some lines in the top corner only on a 6K video fragment upscaled to 8K:

                  Cary, I don't see any watermark so I don't see how that safeguards your footage.
                  BTW, when I want to add a watermark (even a logo, text, or lines) it is easy enough to do right in Premiere during the initial export without going through another program.

                      Dave, I have spent much of the last couple of Winters in the Titusville / Cape Canaveral area of your lovely state and I hope to be there again next year, too!

                        Where can I purchase some of your clips? I need some Florida footage and this looks good. Thanks!
