I shot some stills with my Sony A7SIII and didnt realsie it was set to use Slog-2 in the picture profile settings (as this is what I use for shooting video).
Now when I bring the .ARW files into bridge it appears to briefly show a flat log image and then 'corrects' this with a very heavy crushing of the brightness. This is how the previews of the files remain within bridge and it is applied to any file you scroll to onscreen.
I know the log information is there in the files (as I can brielfy see it before the 'correction' is applied) but how do I deal with these files to get them correctly showing in Bridge to make assessments and then take the into Photoshop?
This is a mystery and I cant find much info about shooting stills with Slog so I hope someone can help. For ages, the general opion was that Picture profiles did not affect shooting RAW stills on Sony cameras ... but it is now proven that it does indeed affect the gamma and I think Bridge is not reading this correctly and trying to compensate somehow.
Any help greatly appreciated!
You may be seeing the JPEG preview, not the corrected RAW file.
Hi Lumigraphics and thank for your comment!
If bridge is indeed seeing the JPEG preview then is there a way to turn this off?.... so it only deals with the RAW information? I can see on the histogram that all the info is there in the right area of the brightness spectrum, even if the preview looks super dark.
Do these show up correctly in Photoshop? There may not be a system profile for slog which would mean it wouldn't work right.
