Earlier in June Sony released several new 3D LUT’s for the F55/F65 in their forum and having just wrapped up principle photography on a cinematic style film I DP’d called Uncommon Enemies I wanted to give them a try and see how they would look. When applied to my slog2 + sgamut footage the results immediately blew me away and it was quite amazing to see my shots transform with new characteristics of their own derived from the Sony LUT’s.
Below are LUTs applied to a single frame from the film using Davinci Resolve with no other pre or post image adjustments. Individual results will vary on the exposure and color temperature setting of the original footage. You may need to adjust your exposure before applying LUT for optimal results. I also recommend you select the clip attributes in Davinci Resolve and set the video levels to use the full data values 0-1023.

These are not really recommended for grading purposes and can be destructive to your images, so if you’re going to use these for grading purposes its best to use the Sony Cine LUT as a starting point or just start your grade from scratch.
To download these LUT’s visit the following links, the StarCentral LUTs are ones I created myself and others have enjoyed:
