Does anyone know of potential issues using the Wide Gamut HDR setting on 5D4 MOVs?

I understand the MJPEG codec is a sequence of compressed JPGs and not Wide Gamut HDR, RAW or Log, but when I toggled it on/off, previously clipped highlights appeared.

If destination is sRGB and Rec709, is it worth squeezing the apparent extra data out of the footage or just stay inside the safe zone?

Can you still add the technicolor profile to those cameras for a simulated log?
If you like what you see with wide gamut, use it!

Answered question

What are “5D4 MOVs”?
If you are editing and outputting Rec. 709 I see no value in shooting with an HDR setting. Shoot Log or RAW to get the most dynamic range and least compression.

Canon 5D4 has 2 recording options – H264 MP4 or Quicktime MOV. No Log or RAW though.

Even though there’s no HDR option in camera, using Wide Gamut HDR workspace in FCPX produced a tad more detail in the shadows and highlights.

Wondering if anyone has noticed this.
