At the Bench: Panasonic VariCam Exposure Tools

Panasonic's VariCam cameras are capable of capturing a wide dynamic range. In order to do this, Panasonic has their own Log recording codec, V-Log. V-Log is a gamma response designed to capture the full dynamic range off the sensor.

If you are familiar with Log, you know that what you see in Log is not like anything you see in the finished product. Therefore, we need tools in the camera to expose Log properly. Thankfully, Panasonic has included several ways to evaluate exposure in the VariCam. In this blog, I will show you the tools to get great results from the VariCam.
