Download & Grade Our Sony a6300 Footage – 4 Free LUTs by James Miller

Update: Head to our latest Sony a6300 reviews: lowlight test done by Nino and a comprehensive lab test done by Sebastian.

Grading is tricky. In fact, it is an artform in itself. In my original a6300 article, I graded the footage to my liking and although I supplied a link to an ungraded version (which was downloaded hundreds of times), I kept hearing concerns from some of our followers about the low contrast grade I did. This morning, James Miller, a friend and colleague of mine whose Deluts I used for grading my original piece stepped in. He sent me 4 LUTS which were created specifically for that project and this camera.

Please feel free to download those LUTs from here and grade the footage to your liking. The above video was re-graded very quickly using one of those very LUTs.

Once again, thank you to everybody who watched and commented on the original film link.

For me the film is not good looking, too unnatural. In most cases LUTs make the look feel unreal, what I do not like. I guess that an 8 bit signal does not have enough information for using a LUT in a sensitive manner.

Try shooting people in a white reflective light dome with any other camera, see how natural it looks.

I don’t understand how someone can be “concerned” about a creative decision?

There is no objective way to make a film!

Another excellent film Johnnie – I enjoyed it thoroughly and thought it used an interesting variety of shots and techniques to make the piece stand out visually and engage the viewer as well as test the camera.

And also, many thanks to James Miller for uploading free LUTs – I use the Deluts regularly so it’s great to see him working on a set for the new A6300.
