SLOG on Sony a7riii? Help?

Hello, newbie here.

At my work, we have two videographers/graphics guys. Well, one got fired the other day and the other is out of town all week for a funeral. We have a speaker coming to visit this Saturday and I volunteered to shoot an interview they are wanting.

I have very very very basic video experience, I know enough to determine what shutter speed to use and whatnot, but the editor that is out of town told me I need to make sure that I shoot in SLOG. We have a brand new sony a7riii that hasn't been set up yet and i see the option to shoot in SLOG but I noticed that there are all kinds of settings within the SLOG profile that can be configured (gamma, black gamma, knee, etc) and I have no clue what any of that means. Should I mess with any of these settings? Any recommended settings for shooting in SLOG? It will be an indoor shoot with good lighting equipment and everything if that makes any difference.

Again, I have very basic knowledge here so go easy on me haha. I would greatly appreciate any advice on the settings to use.

Thanks!

We don't know the background for that.

BUT: don't feel the need to make up for that shortfall in resources, which is NOT YOUR FAULT. The next time it might be YOU, who gets fired.

So, my advice is as follows:

Let this assignment hit the wall. As hard as possible.

And make your bosses think TWICE before firing people.

K, thanks for wasting 10 seconds of my life with your insanely useless response.

You came here and didn't even introduce yourself.

Then you're displaying a lack of solidarity which I find disgusting. To say the least.

If you think, solidarity is an obsolete concept, why did you come here for help in the first place?

Just asking for a friend ...

Kid, in case you're unaware: you're the one who needs help. Not me.

I'm the one, who could provide help. But I won't. Not to you. Learn some manners first.

This place does not belong to you. You don't get to define the rules for a community of volunteers.

You are not helping yourself, by being baited into using profanities!

Just because Chrissie escaped into the German part of Switzerland, you cannot use  swear words, when you are talking to a NatzionalSocialist , on this forum !

Im sure you can find him, on stormfront.org, and in that forum, anything  goes !

In the meantime, I hope someone, who understands Video, can give you a sensible answer.

Yes, he told you , exactly what you are !

An arrogant  tosspot, who thinks you know  better than everyone  else...

Your arrogance, just displays your  national socialistic point of  view.

Everyone  else, tries to help people .

You just like to expound your superiority complex, with no help to anyone !

ME ME ME

I am contacting the  Simon Weizenthal institute about you !

    • Hello, I wanted to share the set up for tracked panoramas that I am currently using, wich is based on the use of two two way head from Sunway: the DT-03 and the DT-03R. Both heads are very steady. They are made up of two parts: 1) a 360º graduated rotating/panoramic base with a bidirectional tilt central body (adjustable with two locking levers), and 2) an upper part that, in the case of the DT-03, it is a clamp quick release plate and, in the case of the DT-03, it is a graduated panoramic screw-on rotating head, both compatible with the Arca Swiss system. These upper parts are removable and, therefore, can be replaced by other standard rotating jaws type IRC-64, or by other indexed ones. As I said, I use one of them, the DT-03, as an equatorial wedge, placed directly on the tripod or on a leveling base. Its quick release head with clamp allows me to quickly place the tracker on top and be able to align easily. To align it, I loosen one of the central pins of the kneecap a little, and leave the other loose. This way I can safely achieve the degree of inclination of the tracker that I want. That, combined with the 360º rotating base that the head has, is an excellent option for precise and fast alignment. Then I place the DT-03R on top of the tracker, and use it as a panoramic flat base on which I mount an L-plate combined with a rotating clamp. On these last accessories I place the camera, ready to shoot, being able to move it both in the horizontal and vertical axis. The DT-03R screwed to the tracker allows me to have a solid flat and rotating base on which to pan without losing horizontality and, at the same time, I can compensate for the rotation of the tracker thanks to its base, which also rotates 360º. So the set up is as follows: Both This is what I use: Tripod Leveling base (optional) Sunway DT-03 two way head as a wedge Star tracker from Move Shoot Move Nomad Sunway DT-03R as a leveled base L bracket 360º rotatory arca swiss head Here I share some photos of the set up; I hope it helps:     View: original size View: original size View: original size You can find them in the Sunwayphoto website.

    • My problem may be related to yours or maybe this should be a separate thread. My (used) A1 has always (1-year) had minor play in lens/mount snugness but no issues. Then, two days ago when I turned on the camera, it did not recognize the already mounted lens, did not display the F-stop and would not autofocus. The contacts look normal.  I cleaned them contacts, remounted the lens multiple times, tried my four other ff lenses (Sony 20, 90, 70-200, 200-600) but nothing changed. I also tried shifting the small play in the mount. Nothing helped yesterday but today shifting the lens reproduces the problem very clearly; a very slight turn of the lens and behavior is normal or it is not (no autofocus, no F-stop display). One time it showed the message lens is not properly attached. The looseness is not in/out but rotational and very slight, though noticeable.  Sorry for lengthy description. Any ideas would be appreciated.
