These traditional scopes provide a visual representation of your image. You can customize the settings for Waveform Monitoring in the To access Waveform Monitoring settings simply tap on the Settings icon and select the Waveform Tab. of the settings menu.
The Luma or Luminance Waveform is a great way to visualize the dynamic range of your image, allowing you to protect exposure of both your highlights and shadow detail. It’s particularly useful when shooting with a low contrast LOG curve and works in perfect partnership with HDR to illustrate and highlight the clipping point to allow you to correctly expose you image.
RGB Waveform will monitor the level of Red, Green and Blue from an input source. The RGB channels are displayed side by side and each channel color is shown under the corresponding waveform. This can be used to check the white balance. Just point the camera at something white and the Red, Green and Blue levels should match if white balance is setup correctly on the camera.
The Waveform Monitor will remain on screen when hiding the overlays ensuring the focus remains on calibrating your image. If the MON button is pressed the WFM will move in to the bottom icon line up.
The Vectorscope display shows color information of hue (shown as a phase vector), and saturation (measured by outward distance from the center). This is useful for checking if an image is under or over saturated and for calibrating multiple cameras to ensure greater consistency between shots.
