Atomos has announced a collaboration with UK-based cinematographer and post expert, James Miller to bring C-Log Picture Profiles for Canon DSLR's to users at an affordable price. By utilising Atomos AtomHDR monitor-recorder the 5D Mark III and other Canon DSLRs are now HDR capable.
With the expanded dynamic range from the sensor enabled with C-Log, a monitor that enables users to accurately and easily expose for Log in the field is required. The Atomos Inferno and Flame series, with 10.2 stops of dynamic range, a 7" high bright calibrated screen and patented HDR waveform and slider tools, gives users everything they need to create better HDR and Rec709 imagery.
The HDR revolution that is sweeping through the professional video industry and into consumer homes has been triggered by advancements in panel displays and content delivery. During 2016, Atomos shipped on camera monitors with 10+ stops dynamic range; HDR content was delivered into the home from Netflix, Amazon and YouTube; and HDR consumer flat panels started shipping.
With all these changes, however, many cameras have are already been HDR-ready. Sensors have had the 10+ stops of dynamic range needed for HDR and used Log signal processing to capture HDR in the recorded content ready for post-production. Meaning that older cameras preceding 2016 with Log output are already HDR-ready. Theres no firmware needed or update to pay for. With Log output from the camera you are HDR-ready and just need to partner it with an AtomHDR monitor to accurately expose in real-time for either HDR or SDR in the field. Atomos have worked hard to ensure this is an easy process with patented HDR tools and scopes to ensure users can be confident they have exposed correctly.
But what if your camera doesnt have Log? Canon DSLR's like the 5D Mark III have been responsible for bringing the 35mm film look to the digital world with their large sensors and 24p capability, but dont have the Log output needed for HDR. Now thanks to the collaboration with James Miller Canon DSLR users can get a Log output and when partnered with an Atomos Inferno or Flame have a formidable HDR combination.
James Millers C-Log package is available at a special discount for Atomos users. More information can be found here.
