Sony FS700 raw DNG files looking way darker (need Gamma correction?)
on May 13, 2015 at 5:08:11 am


I am shooting 240fps with the FS700, and recording on Odyssey 7Q. I am pretty sure everything is set up properly between these 2. It is recording raw .dng files, one file for each frame.

My problem is that when I check the recorded shot on the Odyssey, everything looks as it did when I shot it. But when I open any of these files on a computer, photoshop, after effects, Davinci Resolve... they all look way darker than on the Odyssey. There is a pretty big difference.

I found this information online: "FS700/FS7 RAW files may appear very dark upon first import. Files need a Gamma 2.2 correction"

My question is, what would be the best workflow to apply this correction, on the whole sequence, while retaining optimal quality of the original raw files (I am on Yosemite).
Bonus question, is that all that needs to be done to these files before exporting them to an Apple Prores file, or anything else?

Thanks in advance for your help.
