My understanding is RAW would be the preferred source as it gives most flexibility for grading afterwards. Next is your choice of Log formats. Not sure that matters much and depends on camera as long as it is 10bit 4:2:2 and maximizes the camera dynamic range and can be graded to your intended delivery format.

Back to the original topic for HLG , to meet spec, that has to be 10bit 4:2:2. Creating that from an 8bit 4:2:0 source is missing out a lot of information.

I just wonder if Panasonic will create a firmware update for the GH5's to deliver ProRes RAW over HDMI that the Ninja V could record. Nikon has announced this for their camera but not delivered yet.
