    Thanks for the link Peter (and John for the IR... and Ivan for that sweet example.)

    Hey Phil, how do you feel about DC2/RG4? Honestly, I find that RG4 with a 0.1-to-0.2 shadow setting is pretty solid out of the camera for 709. Or are you talking more about creative looks (like offer them a sepia look, a bleach bypass look, oversaturated look, etc)?

    A bit of both. I have "utility" Looks and creative Looks.

    My utility looks are often simple "starters" like going from the DRAGONcolor(2)/REDgamma4 I might have recorded in camera to a DRAGONcolor(2)/REDlogFilm space with a custom curve to emulate the same effect of REDgamma4 and then I can either touch the color from there in RCX or go to my grading application at that point.

    My creative Looks are all over the place and range from general stock emulation to things like bleach bypassed, day for night, and other weird things I've generated over time.

    Now that RCX has 3D LUT support the various LUTs I've made over the years are coming back into play a bit. Some I've been tweaking and creating newer versions of. Most of those were generated to effect film scans in log space.

    Heh. Saw my old studio's Northlight 6K (Northlight 1) film scanner up on Ebay a bit ago. Looks like a private buyer snatched it up. Somebody must have had this photo laying around from one of my internal data sheets. I took it years ago with a Sigma 14mm prime.

    Filmlight made the best scanners as far as I'm concerned.

    LOL, Björn, thats a funny story.
    Really? That would be a really nice best-of-both-worlds OLPF

    heh, I was actually posting the question to Phil Moreton (who suggested a forum of RCX looks), Not Dr. Phil (Holland)... But I still appreciate your insight Phil!

    Wow, that is very beautiful, almost has a feeling of a moonlit painting.
    Was that a standard dragon with the IR Spectrum Zero Lowpass filter or the full spectrum version?

    Full spectrum for sure, but with IR pass front of lens I believe.

    More creative looks like you suggested really. It would be great to have possible options like that.
    It's kinda a shame that we can only send a redlog look and one graded look to different monitors.
    I'd like to send two different graded looks through our monitoring outputs. For example- one standard DC1/RG4 and then a look that we have created in RCX Pro.

    I know to a certain degree that RCX Pro is limited compared to a real LUT, but I think it can be pretty powerful if put into the right hands.
    I think I prefer dragon colour 1 or sometimes even red colour 2 (Lol, call me crazy). I kinda like the less saturated colours of those two colour spaces.

    Hi John,

    Do you have these OLPFs to rent as well?
    would love to rent to test before knowing which one to buy so I can play with further.
