Follow-up colorgrading experiment in a FCP wide gamut library with a Rec 2020 HLG project setting for this Sony ZV-1 footage shot with PP10 profile with Hybrid Log-Gamma HLG2. Color grading now includes use of the Apple FCP HDR Tools – Mode : PQ to HLG (Rec. 2100). This HDR Tools Mode was used too in previous ZV1 films this month. Exported as HEVC Dolby Vision (Version 1.0, dvhe.08.12, BL+RPU, HLG compatible) 70 Mb/s HLG BT.2020 .
Footage used previously for intro of a Sennheiser MKE200 Microphone Review , first published September 20th 2020 (20200920) and filmed that day with the Sony ZV-1 camera at sunset in the Green Heart of Holland. See : Sennheiser MKE200 Microphone Review | 20200920 | youtu•be/CXC6wHzPar0

0:00:00 TEST #1 – solo testing outside of the Sony ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone in wind
00:24:17 TEST #2 – Comparison of the Sony ECM-B1M digital shotgun camera microphone vs the Sennheiser MKE 440 stereo shotgun microphone – in 5 short episodes .
This full review starts with a solo test of the Sony ECM-B1M digital shotgun camera microphone, focussing on wind noise resistance, more on the windscreen, and distance – using both the supplied Sony fuzzy wind screen, plus – in addition as a second layer – another different fuzzy wind screen (from an old Canon DM-100 microphone). Next, follows a side-by-side comparison outside of the Sony ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone and the Sennheiser MKE 440 stereo shotgun microphone. Cameras are the Sony A7S Mark II (with the Sennheiser), and Sony A7 Mark III with Sony microphone. There is a lot of redundancy in my text because this wasn’t planned as one long review – and talking was mainly to both take notes of the settings and as a sound test 😉 Compilation of 6 review episodes published Sep 2019.

Busy today using the Sony ZV-1 camera for testing new wireless microphone equipment – Røde Go II and Sony ECM-W2BT – extended with external mono and stereo microphones and in this shot audiorecorder Olympus LS-P4 on the Sony W2BT.

Color Grading Dolby Sony ZV-1 | 20210222 | 1-memo•com
New edition of footage used previously for a Sennheiser MKE200 Microphone Review , first published September 20th 2020 (20200920) and filmed that day with the Sony ZV-1 camera at sunset in the Green Heart of Holland. No fur windscreen on top of the Sennheiser MKE200 Microphone (which has some built in sheet protection), using footage shot before the actual review discussion 😉
Follow up on experiments with including now Dolby Vision metadata with HDR export after some colorgrading on footage shown before as : 1) Sennheiser MKE200 & Sony ZV-1 HLG | 20210212

Macbook Air M1 is much slower than expected and/or first experienced. After showing a 2-3 times faster export from FCP the first 1-2 days , now export times are probably similar compared to my maxed-out late 2015 iMac.
Note also that I did start all software on the M1 Mac fresh – no copying of system or applications from the older Mac.
I left out titles/logos here , trying to improve export time – with no success it seems.
Exporting time of these 4K HDR files is roughly 10 times the length of the video.
NO Neat Video noise reduction available it seems for this M1 chip mac. I applied both FCP native noise reduction effect , and some color grading (exposure mostly, and some saturation and color temp changes) using the FCP color wheels on a custom Motion made 4K-wide gamut adjustment layer. The important adjustmenst are a major increase in midtones exposure , and slight exposure decrease in highlights and shadows
Now a FCP wide gamut library was used, with a Rec 2020 HLG project setting for this raw HDR footage filmed with the Sony ZV-1 camera set on the PP10 picture profile with Hybrid Log-Gamma HLG2. Now noise reduction now either.
Though the original footage is 8-bit, correct export from this FCPX project requires 10-bit.
