    As long as they know how to use IPP2 in post.. I'd say for safety, and what I do for a fast 422 1080 turnaround is Red Dragon 2, Red Gamma 2. I use Red Gamma 2 to get the colors started but not overly contrasted. To each their own but if the person doing post doesn't know IPP2 you may run into a headache..

    I was just told redlog.
    Is there a reason I shouldn’t be selecting redlogfilm?

    Yeah, that's a forklift tattoo. I wasn't always a cinematographer :)

    I would convince them to use ProRes 444 if you possibly can. Barring that, 422HQ is not too bad, but I would avoid regular 422, particularly from a camera this good. DragonColor and RedLogFilm can work OK. RWG and Log3G10 yield a slightly different image -- try tests with both and see how they color-correct.

    Because this is new starting point before grading any RED footage now. Its more in line with other log footage from other cameras.

    Any suggestions as to what the best color settings are for prores in the event that they dont want log and want a quick turnaround?

    Thanks for this info

    I often give the work in prores only. I use the IPP2 medium+medium and all settings backed in. Or if I want to spend more time in post I have the color in monitor but I record the flat image. I find very nice to grade the flat prores
