[Mathieu Ghekiere] "I hope Apple makes much more controls available in FCPX"

The limitations usually mentioned are lack of separate ISO and white balance controls in FCPX for ProRes RAW. I don't fully understand this; maybe someone could help explain.

It is true for some RAW codecs, FCPX and other NLEs show an ISO setting. However in reality there is no adjustable ISO - that is fixed for all time during acquisition. What would be the difference between using exposure controls in FCPX vs Apple adding a separate "ISO" control? Are they not both just applying digital luminance gain to the captured data?

Besides white balance and ISO, the Sony FS5 also writes to a Shogun Inferno the camera ND setting as metadata in the RAW file. Do people also want yet another control in the NLE which "manipulates" the ND in post? I don't see the benefit of adding NLE UI controls if they are simply providing redundant capability to the existing controls.
