Hi, after a couple hours of research I have come to the conclusion that I have almost no idea what I am doing. HDR, HDR HLG, if my current 4k camera is the best I can get with VMS15 and DVDA7, etc.
Currently I have a Sony AX53, and I LOVE it. The only bad part is that it does not have any form of HDR. I am thinking about upgrading to the Sony AX700 and using my AX53 as a backup/second angle camera for recordings.
The reason for this upgrade is that I see that the AX700 supports a form of HDR called HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), which I have researched to a bit and know that it's backwards compatible with non HDR screens, but beyond that the only other thing I know is that it supports a higher color gamut - I think.
My question is that will this form of HDR - "HLG" - benefit me in any way with Vegas Movie Studio 15 and DVD Architect 7? Can I export in the same formats I've been using and get better quality DVD and Blu Ray discs out of the AX700 than with my AX53 or is HLG just a gimmick? I know that currently I can't make 10 bit color 4k blu rays as that's still years away but will this benefit my DVD and Blu Ray outputs even though they're 8 bit color and non HDR/HLG? And also, I assume that the AX700 is still 8 bit color as well, or is it 10 bit?
Sorry for my ignorance, it's just that there's no clear answer for this I can seem to find.
EDIT: After some research I have found that the camera supports ITU-R BT.2100 but sony support says it can only do 8 bit color.
