So, my question is: is this the camera's fault because it's not properly sending the right data out through HDMI, or is it the Samsung's fault because the Sony data is only 8-bit? I've heard that some UHD sets will only accept 10-bit HDR data. They'll treat 8-bit as SDR. I'm not sure if my Samsung Q65 will accept 8-bit HDR streams or not.

Sony's 8-bit "HDR" video is non-standard. Only Sony's TVs and I believe some Xbox models will recognize it as HDR. You will need to open the video in a editor and save it as 10-bit to play it on your Samsung.
