In the second part of our three-part series on the Sony PMW-F3, I look into the camera’s dynamic range and the various gamma modes that it offers. The test results were quite impressive, and I learned more about the different Cine Gamma modes built into the camera. I tested it right out of the box, without the upcoming S-Log firmware upgrade. With S-Log, the camera will output higher dynamic range video. In the tests, the F3 had the following settings: 1920×1080 23.98p, Black Gamma 0, Matrix Standard, Detail OFF and Aperture OFF. All testing was performed with a Leader LV7330 scope, DSC Labs Ambi – Combo System and DSC Labs 18 step grayscale chart. Watch the video above to see how the F3 performed.
