I have been importing footage from a Sony A6300 that was filmed with a Cine2 picture profile.
When importing it into Premiere I noticed that the footage has been given high contrast and color.
I do not see any way to turn off this setting with imported clips in Premiere 15.
When exported the clips go back to looking flat. Does anyone have a way to get the imported clip to show up thew same way it looks when I pull it from the camera?
I have attached screenshots below.

From looking at the Sony manual for this, the Cine2 profile is not actually a log encoding, which is a very different thing. The first image in your example is clearly not a log image ... just has a slightly lifted gamma from that in the second image.
So what you're viewing these on outside PrPro matters, as well as your settings in PrPro and your OS/monitor for color management.
What is your OS? Have you done any calibration of the monitor with a puck/software combination? What are you viewing the image on outside of PrPro?
I am sorry LOG was the wrong word to use.
I am viewing the footage in quicktime on OS 10.15.7.

I was expecting this. Color management is a morass, and not so easy to do between the Apple ColorSync app that often displays Rec.709 media with a 1.96 gamma. PrPro assumes all Rec.709 is to be displayed on a system with "normal" broadcast-standard Rec.709 which assumes 2.4 gamma.
Within PrPro on a Mac, you do need to have the Preferences option 'display color managment' selected so that PrPro will attempt to present a correct Rec.709 view on the monitor. It won't 'fix' things outside PrPro, but ... there's no real way around this anyone has found. The Mac OS system is ... unique.
That helped a lot with making it look remotely simliar to the original footage 🙌
On my tablet they don't seem that dissimilar. I'll look at them at the shop a bit later today.
oh thanks ! I see it awful from my pc, much more white and saturated...
So you're getting a difference within Premiere Pro between the timeline view in the Program Monitor and the Export dialog box?
sorry for the delay, i had terrible working days!
I have a difference - notorius differece, more bright and turned in to magenta between the timeline - and not just the dialog export box, the final result its magenta and much much brighter.... 😞
in the last days since i had work to deliver i had to create an adjust layer "guessing" without seing underexposuring and turned into green for getting close to the original....I know its crazy and im soing something wrong for sure but all this start happening with this new version
What are the color management settings for the clip and for the sequence?
I am getting this same issue. I have a Slog clip and when I add it to the timeline it looks like a LUT has been automatically applied and I haven't done anything to the clip except put it on the timeline. Did I miss some feature that it will automatically apply a LUT in the BG?
No ... and are you having blown out issues or it's had a transform to Rec.709 you weren't expecting?
