What is LOG Footage?
LOG stands for logarithm. It is a shooting profile that gives videographers more control over the dynamic and tonal ranges. This preserves more data in the shot, which allows you to have much more control in post production. While recording in LOG gives you greater control in post, your clips will come out looking very flat and gray. This washed out look happens because the LOG profile keeps the details in the shadow and highlights, but in doing so there is not much contrast or saturation.
