It is long but you get a clear explanation of why when shooting dngRAW you do NOT need a log profile in the camera. Essentially, the sensor is linear and RAW captures all the sensor information. You can apply a log profile in post.

I'm no filmmaker/videographer and pay little to no attention to video specs et al but... even I know that Log is for those NOT wanting to capture CinemaDNG; 10-bit H.264/265 is far more manageable than RAW and fits into filmmakers' existing workflows.

The fp's USP is full-frame RAW at an aggressive price point, but CinemaDNG creates all sorts of demands that (seemingly) a lot of people don't want to be faced with. It's why internally recording to ProRes LOG is also highly requested.

P.S. cardinal sin of commenting on the internet... I haven't watched the video

I remember watching it before, I think soon after the fp first came out.

The youtube video is dated May 1, 2020, so hopefully very recent.
