FilmConvert for Sony RX100 IV and RX10 Available

FilmConvert is our film look plugin of choice for many of the review videos we shoot here at cinema5D. It’s easy to use, there are integrated versions for Premiere and Final Cut Pro X as well as a standalone version, and in our opinion, there isn’t an easier and faster way to achieve a very sophisticated film look without much more effort (and no, this is not a sponsored post … I just like it!).

One of the qualities of FilmConvert is that they develop their presets specifically for each camera, which makes it actually easy to match different cameras across models and even manufacturers using the plugin. On the other hand, you need to download these profile packs individually. Luckily they have become quite fast in implementing new picture profiles for new cameras.

There’s the two fairly new Sony RX100 IV and sony rx10 II cameras, (small sensor, fixed-lens cameras) that have gained popularity among semi pro filmmakers as B-cameras or quick always-in-your-pocket tools. The amount of possible movie mode adjustments in these cameras make them viable tools also for professionals – just look at my colleague Johnnie Behiri’s great video reviews of the RX100 IV as well as the RX10.

To make grading easy with these cameras, head over to FilmConvert to download the appropriate plugin pack for free (if you already own the software).

Having not come across this software before and having just bought a Rx10mk2 it’s interesting that it just mimics popular film stocks. Personally I would have liked to see plugins that make one cameras rec709 mimic another cameras rec709 identically. So maybe to match a Fs7 and a Rx10mk2 or a C300 to a A7s. One thing that Canon have done for years is the Xseries profile so you can match any XF camera to Eos stills cameras. It’s really handy and the match is identical, so you don’t need to grade.
The list is extensive and endless. As it’s something I find I spend time trying to achieve on jobs which don’t have loads of time for grades.

There are three things to make a classic film look, besides the subject matter. Impeccable lighting, gauze filtering for close ups, and the integration of film grain that acts as a blender of all the elements. The grain reacts differently based on the gamma of light hitting it. Gable and Lombard were both very attractive people, but they were always filmed through gauze in close ups. The function of the filter was to keep our eyes on their expressions, and not their skin details. It kept the story going without the viewer bothering to analyze the aging and defects found in all people. Plus, the gauze created little micro halo’s around surfaces. But don’t try gauze without perfect lighting. All you’ll get is mush.
