Color grading is post-production image processing performed to adjust the contrast and coloring on videos taken with the S-Log2 or S-Log3 setting. You must shot your video with wide dynamic range and wide color reproduction range to allow grading and flexible expression. Use the S-Log gamma curve and S-Gamut color reproduction to record these kinds of videos.
