Fuji Guys on F-Log and LUT

It took Fujifilm a few years to really dial in their video performance, which only started to get good around the release of the Fujifilm X-T2 with the introduction of F-Log. Since then Fujifilm has added features like RAW video to cameras like the GFX100, which represents the next logical step beyond F-Log, but until it is more widely adopted F-Log will likely remain the standard for most videographers.

If you would like the latest LUT for Fujifilm cameras they are available here Above you can see the Fuji Guys take on the current state of F-Log in Fujifilm cameras and below I have created a summary of the above video:

  • Log footage lets you record very flat image data that is ideal of post-processing giving the maximum flexibility in post
  • Log helps you to get the max dynamic range that the camera can create
  • F-Log is captured in Rec. 2020
  • White balance can be hard to get right with log because the image is so washed out so it is best to dial in white balance manually in advance
  • Fujifilm provides LUT that will help you to quickly turn a log image into a usable Eterna color profile based video
  • Fujifilm’s latest cameras have F-Log assist that will load a profile in to help dial in your capture settings giving you a Rec. 709 preview
  • If you are using an external recorder you can load LUTs onto the recorder
  • There are creative and technical LUTs
  • Most editors allow you to load LUTs
  • Recording with Eterna is the fastest way to make a video, but if the situation is high dynamic range use F-Log
