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).
