I'm not familiar with this format - has it been around for a while? Is there a good example online that can be downloaded for color grading practice?

Is LOG a proprietary format? I have never seen it prior to the Inspire 1.

LOG has been around for quite sometime and in simple terms is the best format to use to get the most out of your image. It will produce a very flat image with dull colors and very little contrast and detail. This will allow you to color grade the footage in your editing platform of choice. Color grading or editing is an art and is a learned practice. LOG format is not recommended for beginners as it requires additional work to bring your footage to life. Once learned however, it's worth it.

Here's some technical data and history of LOG Format vs Rec.709: http://www.arri.com/camera/alexa/learn/log_c_and_rec_709_video/

Great, thanks. It seems to be somewhat like shooting RAW for stills - it holds the most info. I prefer to do my own color timing (or grading as I guess it's preferred in video), so it looks like this format is the winner.

Thanks again.
