I used the GH4/DVX200's internal meters, which is very underexposed for VLog-L. I should have used my White/Grey card and set 41 IRE to [...]

Cinespace 100 on Vlog-L

Here's a weird preset I found while tinkering with color presets in Adobe Premiere Pro CC. I applied several presets from the Lumetri Presets menu, but this one had a special "there's a body in the trunk that I need to dispose of" kinda look, while still showing a miserable overcast sky. Footage filmed on DVX-200 [...]
