adjusting for low-contrast picture profiles
on Aug 14, 2013 at 12:42:57 am

Some DPs want to use special "picture profiles" which allow them to extend the dynamic range of the image, so that highlights don't get "blown out" and shadows don't turn into black holes.

But in their raw form, these images are very low in contrast.

Is there a way to program a Flanders field monitor, so that you can input a low-contrast image and yet see it in a way that will approximate the color-corrected picture?

If so, will the vectorscope/waveform display be affected?

Are you talking about monitoring uncorrected log output from a camera? If so all of our monitors have several log modes (C-Log, S-Log, S-Log2, BMDCC Film Log) modes to roughly normalize the image. This is of course not a replacement for proper color correction, but provides a somewhat normalized view of the source so that the image does not look flat, washed out, low contrast, etc.
