Color grading S-log in Sony A7s series cameras
The Sony A7s was definitely one of the hottest cameras from 2014, and as it's been in use for several years now, As a colourist, I have had plenty of opportunity to discover how to obtain the best possible image from it.
When shooting in HD internally, there is a growing consensus among A7s users that it's best practice to expose to the right +2 S (ETTR) (that is, exposure should be compensated brighter without clipping highlights).
Here, the video illustrates the effectiveness of exposing to the right two stops and overexposing a shot and making some quick adjustments in a color grading and achieving the best results.
