Fujifilm Film Simulation LUTs for Sony S-Log2/S-Gamut3.cine

What is this?

This is a pack of 3D LUTs that convert Sony's S-Log2/S-Gamut3.cine to the following Fujifilm film simulations in DR400 mode:

  • Provia
  • Velvia
  • Astia
  • Classic Chrome
  • Pro Neg Hi
  • Pro Neg Std
  • Eterna

Each LUT comes in two versions, the normal one emulates the following settings:

  • 0 Shadow tone
  • 0 Highlight tone
  • 0 Color

The low contrast version emulates the following settings:

  • -2 Shadow tone
  • -2 Highlight tone
  • -4 Color

Requirements

  • S-Log2 gamma and S-Gamut3.cine gamut
  • Correct white balance, I recommend doing custom wb using a gray/white card before shooting. Best results will be achieved in daylight.
  • The LUTs expect an S-Log2 image overexposed by 1EV. This is not a strict requirement, I give you LUTs to modify exposure.

It's important to note that the LUTs were created using the Sony A6300's S-Log2 implementation, and although the colors of log profiles are rarely change, I can't say with 100% certainty that Sony didn't change them in newer models.

What else is in the package?

  • Exposure modifier LUTs that range from -3 EV to +3 EV, in 1/3 stop increments.
  • Full to legal range conversion LUTs for Davinci Resolve, Premiere Pro, and FCPX.

Order of operations

  1. Check your data levels.
    This step is not required if you use the in-camera recordings in the latest versions of the editors mentioned, but it might be necessary when using externally recorded footage.
    Sony's S-Log2 recordings are full range, and they should be interpreted as such, that's what my LUTs expect.
    Just import the reference black image into your timeline (it's in the FixLevels folder), shoot a short clip with the lens cap on, import that as well, and compare the black levels.
    If they match, you're fine. If they don't, and you're in Resolve, go to the Media pool, select your clips, right click, go to Clip attributes and select "Full" at Data levels.
    In Premiere Pro go to Effects, and choose Lumetri Presets -> Technical -> Full to Legal range, and choose the bit depth corresponding to your footage.
    Alternatively, you can use my level adjustment LUTs in the FixLevels folder, there is a separate version for Resolve, Premiere and FCPX. The FCPX version should be applied via the built in Custom LUT tool.
  2. Change exposure with the included exposure modifier LUTs if necessary.
  3. Do white balance correction if necessary.
  4. Apply the film simulation LUT.

How accurate is this?

I measured more than 10000 color patches for each profile, and I used my own color conversion engine to build 3D LUTs from these measurements.
The LUTs are very precise in daylight and they have smooth color transitions throughout the whole color space.
