The latest firmware for the F3 was just released a few days ago, and it adds a great new option. Version 1.40, which can be download here, adds S-Log into the Picture Profile menu of the camera. This allows anyone to turn on S-Log without the RGB key, although you still need the key for 4:4:4 output. Having S-Log in the profiles menu allows adjustment to the other camera settings such as black level, color, and white balance. I have put together an S-log profile that matches the normal S-log mode and also a modified file that combines the S-log gamma mode with color and black levels. You can download the files individually here (S-log and AB-Slog) or my full camera settings here, which contain both files and updated scene files as well. Watch my video above to learn more, and make sure to check out the upcoming F3 classes in NY and LA.
