Creating and Importing LUTs for the Sony F5/F55

In the latest firmware version 4.0 for the F5/F55, Sony added the ability to load custom 3D LUTs. This enables you to see the look you want on set while recording in Raw or Log. Many have been asking about this feature for some time now, and Sony has now made it available.

In the video above, I show how to create both 1D and 3D LUTs in Sony's Raw Viewer software and then import them into the camera. It's a tricky process, so make sure to follow all the steps. In addition, many people like to work in DaVinci Resolve, so in the video below I show how you can create LUTs in Resolve and edit them to work properly in the F5/F55.

It's important to note that LUTs can be applied to the different outputs of the F5/F55 and can even be "burned in" to an internal recording if desired. Watch both videos to see how you can utilize this powerful new feature. Also, make sure to check out our Digital Technician classes if you want to learn even more about using LUTs: On-Set LUT Creation 101 - 1D & 3D LUTs and On-Set LUT Creation 201 - Creative Application.

A special thanks to Camermanben on the Sony Community forum for figuring out the extra space issue in the Resolve LUTs.

Pomfort has put together a new tutorial on how to use their LiveGrade software in conjunction with DaVinci Resolve to create dailies. LiveGrade can be used with hardware like the BlackMagic HD Link Pro to create LUTs live. I outlined how to apply different LUTs in a previous blog, but Pomfort has put together a very simple way to work with ASC-CDL (Color Decision List) files in DaVinci Resolve.
