You know how everyone says 10bit is better than 8bit when it comes to heavy grading, today I am finally testing that. It makes sense but I wanted to see it. Anytime I’m curious usually something unexpected happens.
Tests not about detail/sharpness, not about the codecs or 4:2:2 vs 4:2:0. Not talking about rolling shutter, etc.
- I guess the most surprising take away from this is: while the a7sii is only 8 bit camera it can hold it’s own when shot at 4K when you really have to stretch the image. The advantages you get from 10 bit on the FS5 or the 12 bit from the Scarlet when stretching the image kind of goes away because when using slog or other formats that require high ISO’s makes the images so noisy that the cleaner 8 bit image holds up better when you stretch the crap out of it.
Like I have said many times in this video I am not an expert at color, I am just sharing my experiences so others can learn from me or my mistakes.
