Presets and The Settings

New member and first post.

First, I want to thank Chris (as so many have) and wanted to say thanks also to all who share their knowledge. Iím not a professional video/film guy, my knowledge is challenged, but my interest is great. Iíve used this forum so much to learn about the craft.

Since Iím a new A1 user, I thought I would ask this question here. Iíve recently moved up from my GL2 to the A1, and have taken full advantage of the presets shared here. As the curious guy I am, I do want to know the technical aspects to all those wonderful settings (knee, setup, pedestal, etc.) and how there adjustments contribute to the awesome images Iím getting. Iím not asking for a long tutorial from anyone here, just trying to get pointed in the right direction to any previous posts, links, or books. Iíve searched some, but thought the your opinions on good sources would help.

Thanks, and Happy New Year,

Sean

As usual, best education will be hands on.

Canonís site is a good start, but Iíll still be looking for more descriptive (and applicable) information. Good example is their settings for blacks. (3 settings that are ďuser's personal preferenceĒ).

One things for sure, I know what looks good, just havent figured out how to tanslate it into my camera/editing. I definatly have a new respect for camera persons, film makers, and broadcast Engineers. TV and Cinema will never be the same.

Weíll see what the weekend brings.
