Ok, so here's what I used:

FLAT CIN

GAM 2
KNE H
BLK S
PED 6
SET 9
SHP 0
HDF M
DHV 0
COR 0
NR1 0
NR2 L
CMX 2
Everything Else 0

This has Noise Reduction on to help with the noise in the gray areas, but it can be off as well- esp if you're shooting with lots of light.

Then you expose to retain the highlights that you care about, and crush the blacks to the desired level in post.

Hope it's of use- I'm developing a second one that I think I like better. I'll post it when I've shot some stuff and verified that I like it.

Thank you M. Gene Hoffman. I attached your preset below for those who want to start playing around with it. FLATCINE1 is with the noise reduction (exactly as you described above). FLATCINE2 is without it.

Flat cine

Thanks for that info. Being flatter, this should work better than running the standard XH-A1 config in contrasty natural light situations?

Great job,

What kind of lens adaptor you used for the lenses? I have a Canon EF XL lens adaptor but I do not even see any point of having and using it with my XL-H1, specially considering the X7.2 factor.

cheers
Mitchell
