Are you sure you want to delete this?
I am a very new not yet a DP. Here is my two cents, LUTS do give a good Idea of how you contrast would be once you collapse down the image to 7 stops of latitude (like rec 709). Shooting on LOG in the monitor output without a lut can really throw you off your game - you can still rely on false colours and the vectorscopes - but personally i prefer to have an idea of the contrast by using some sort of LUT. if there is something that can make my life easier, then why not use it?
