Some “dynamic range” tests

So,

There were some arguments over the dynamic range of the new C300mk2… I shot a test series just to satisfy my curiosity. Pictures are below. You can draw your own conclutions if your’re so inclined.

The first image in each series has the right most patch on the cusp of white clip.

The second is with 10 stops of ND – 1.8ND internally and 1.2ND in front of the lens AND 1/2 a stop down on the lens for a total of 10.5 stops down from the first picture.

The third is another full 2 stops down on the lens for a total of 12.5 stops down from the first picture.

The fourth is the same as No.3 but “graded” so that we can “see into the dark”.

The F5 was shot Slog3, The C100 Clog, and the C300 mk2 both Clog and Clog2. No noise reduction applied anywhere. Footage imported into Premiere Pro, titles done there, exported as Prores HQ, and then “graded” (only the 4th pic in each series is touched) in DaVinci.

Here goes:
