Raw, Log & Uncompressed


Many of today’s latest cameras offer Log & Raw recording modes, giving extended dynamic range and versatility in post. However, shooting in Log & Raw presents many challenges both in the field and in the post-production process. This class is an introduction to Log & Raw recording and its applications. Participants will be presented with technical and aesthetic implications of shooting in different Log & Raw modes, and discussions will be part theory and part practical application. We will discuss different camera formats, demonstrate methods for exposing, and explore post production tools used to give the best results.

“Megan is a very knowledgeable working professional. She has practical experience that translates well in the Abelcine classroom. The class is structured well, and you can always feel comfortable asking questions at any time. This class was very helpful and I was applying what I learned in the class, that night. I look forward more classes in the future.”
