Heya there... since I am new to all of this log thing I have a question
If I decide on a shoot to display in rec 709 but record in LOG, will my judging the footage in rec 709 effect my log in a negative way?(wrong exposure etc)...

You most certainly will record with a wrong exposure (depends on what you define as wrong).
In other words: you will not see what you get.

If you use zebras to expose, you should be okay. John or some other users might want to chime in here.

The zebras as far as I'm aware are calculated based on the raw/sensor clipping, not the display's LUT.

I believe John mentioned that in Video Mode (rec709), the range is dead center in the exposure range of Film Mode (log). I think keeping this information in the back of your head while also using the zebra's like Nick mentioned you'd be just fine. I do it all the time with the RED's. It might be nice if BMD made an easy way to toggle back and forth between Video and Film modes, for monitoring. This is something I also do a lot with the RED's.
