For me, as a cinematographer, the most egregious part of this is that I dial in a look that I want- that represents my (and the director's) vision of what the footage should look like. We use (mostly) properly set up SDI monitors and look at scopes on the monitor and in the software. The footage gets transcoded and loaded into Avid or FCP. Agency, client, everyone watches dailies and cuts but footage looks darker and more contrasty than I intended because of these issues. It's unacceptable.
