As you know the new Leica SL Full Frame mirrorless system camera has been made with lot of Panasonic tech inside. It even uses Panasonic’s own V-LOG profile. But it seems Leica didn’t implement it well. Newsshooter reports:
Log curves are supposed to be flat, but it seems the Leica version was so flat that it makes grading difficult, perhaps impossible.

I first noticed it with the lens cap on that the blacks in LOG mode seem to start around 100 on the 0-255 luma range. This makes the footage essentially un-gradable, severely limits dynamic range and is an obvious flaw. Who does Leica have testing the video features!?
So this doesn’t seem to work as smooth as a “Full Frame GH4” yet :(
