Re: Custom Picture Profiles for Canon C300

Thanks, Alister! You jumped right in. I am loading these today. I find the EOS Standard profile to be a little too contrasty, and welcome some options from someone who knows what they're doing (as opposed to me)
Any chance you might have a couple of profiles for the C300 and EX3 for delivery that will not be graded in post? I'm heading overseas saturday and will be using both of these cameras together.

Re: Custom Picture Profiles for Canon C300

Same here. Remember, Canon says the EOS Picutre Profile emulates the EOS DSLRs look and 5D and 7D are quite contrasty out of the box. As with my 5Ds, I tuned down contrast a couple notches and blacks look right to my eyes which I trust more than scopes...

Here's a quick test I ran on a variety of CPs on the C100, including Alister's. Enjoy.

Re: Custom Picture Profiles for Canon C300

I used the AC-Nat01 (neutral look) at a wedding on Saturday and I like it very much but I would like to dial down the saturation a bit. Is there a good profile that would be somewhere between the Wide DR profile and AC-Nat01 (neutral look)?

I greatly appreciate this.
