The A7s3, Fx3 and Fx6 are game changing cameras, with incredible features, image quality and lowlight capability all in a super compact form factor.
The Sony colour science has really come a long way but I still felt there was room for improvement.
To me, the gold standard for colour science is still to be found in the ARRI Digital Camera family, and so using my own ARRI Amira as a benchmark, I developed a LUT that reverse engineers the colour science of the Alexa709 LUT, which I’ve always found to look filmic and natural, straight out of camera; The result is my ‘Phantom Neutral LUT’.
The 5 LUTs Described Below:
LUT 1) Neutral
Developed to emulate the ARRI Rec709 LUT as close as technically possible.
Featuring immaculate ARRI-like skin-tone reproduction.
Drastically Improved colour accuracy with all primary colours and skin tones for a clean, neutral starting point for grading
LUT 2) Tungsten
A slightly warmer golden cast designed to be utilised for subjects bathed in tungsten light.
LUT 3) Ice Blue
Blue, colder cast with punchy, deep blues (looks amazing on subjects with blue eyes).
LUT 4) Jamaica
Green and gold cast – distinctive, rich, filmic greens and beautiful golden skintones.
LUT 5) Utopia
The most filmic look of the LUTs, with blood red reds and filmic blues and greens with a slight boost in contrast.
It’s my personal take on what Utopia would look like.
