Colorist Mathieu Marano gives his take on the AJA CION, looking at it with an eye on post-production.
He writes, “AJA looked at two very different ways to use this camera. The goal was to maximize time in production and minimize work in post. So, one way to use the camera is to use the different gamma and color correction settings to achieve a baked-in look and go straight to the screen. The other way is to capture as much info as possible in the the files and work on them in post-production.”
