If you want the most dynamic range out of your A7C, which records video in 8bit, you can look at SLog2.

This is a good advice for 8 bit shooters when high contrast scenes is an issue (using 8 bit A7rIII and 10 bit A7IV here).

That said, for normal contrast scenes I use a plain picture profile setting.

In order to keep exposure correctly, for run and gun, I normally setup the zebras to be on "average skin-tones" percentage for +1 or +2 stops over-exposed.

I support this. Correct exposure is the key when shooting video. Ensure good in-data. Personally I use manual exposure settings all the time (shutter speed, aperture, ISO and white balance). To control bright light and keep shutter speed at 180 degrees shutter angle, I use a NiSi 1-5x variable ND filter.


"Plain picture profile settings" - do you mean no pp at all?
