Re: Matching CP and WB Settings on an XF105 and XF305

Thanks for the info, Andy

I completely agree on everything you said.

I still plan to be a stickler for custom white balancing, and also for making sure that highlights aren't blown out.

Another interesting weirdness - for a time I was using the Cine1 gamma, but one of the Normal gammas in Color Matrix. I got that from an older CP settings file that was posted here, and really liked the richness it gave the colors. But, after a time I discovered that it worked great in daylight, but only so-so in tungsten, and it was crazy under fluorescents or mercury vapor. For those latter situations, even when the whites were correctly balanced, skin tones went a sickly yellow that I could not totally correct without masking, etc. So, it seems that the "main" gamma and the color matrix gamma need to match or drama ensues.

Thanks again
