I am using an XLh1 and not the A1 but I like many of the presets created for the A1. The scale for many of the same settings on the H1 is slightly different and at one point someone posted a rough graph showing the relationship between the two. I think it was Chris Hurd actually. I have been searching this forum all morning and cannot find it. Anyone know where this is located or know of a resource for this? I'd really like to try the TrueColor preset but need to adapt it to the H1 as accurately as possible.

Thanks.

That's it, but results are not guaranteed. It was just an experiment.

The -3dB preset (I think it's made by a gentleman named Wolfgang?)

Does anyone know the post # or thread where I can download the CPF file for the "-3dB" preset? I've been looking through the posts high and low and can't seem to find it. And "-3dB" is a tough search!

Also, I'm new to the whole custom presets thing...

How can I make sure that I don't overwrite the factory defaults, or worse yet, alter them? I want to make sure that when I turn cp off that my factory settings have been untouched in the process of me loading up new presets. Thanks guys!!!

Thank you so much Arnold! I'm assuming his "PRESET01" is the -3dB preset, correct? Thanks again!

Thanks to everyone for the great info here and the presets. As a videophile and home theater journalist, I am very interested in getting the absolute best "3D" Hd image quality from my XH-A1. Over the past several weeks, I have been experimenting and test shooting with what have become my 3 favorite presets - Panalook, VividRGB, and True Color. But with each, I found areas which I felt could stand some improvement. I am shooting mostly outdoors, in sunny settings, but I have done test footage to tweak the presets using both natural subjects and test charts. I'm especially interested in accurate grayscale tracking and reproduction, and true but ever so slightly 'punchy' color.

By the way, I don't know if others here are experiencing this, but I have found that with ANY preset that uses the "N" gamma curve (as opposed to cinema1 or cinema2), including the factory preset, there is excessive blowing out of highlights and whites, and exposure must be manually reduced by at least half a stop to compensate, which hurts shadow detail. I have obtained the best results in all presets by using the Cinema1 gamma curve. Just curious if others see this too (a good way to judge is by turning zebras on, to 95).

I've come up with what I think are some great modifications to these presets, and if there is interest here I will be glad to post them, to give back something that will hopefully be useful to this community, as I have gained very much from following the discussion here. Thanks again to all!

By all means, please post your presets along with some links to examples of footage.

I've been working on tweaking a preset as well. I also like VIVIDRGB, PANLOOK2. Recently I tried the REALITY preset and found it was almost exactly what I was looking for. I've been using that preset as a foundation and making some slight adjustments.... we'll see what happens. If anything good comes out of it, I will post it as well.

I'll have to check out your tip about Gama curves...

Updated Custom Preset List

Taking up on Steven Dempey's suggestion, I have updated the Preset list originally posted by Chris Hurd. The new list contains 41 presets, many of which can be seen in Gert Krachtís Preset Movie 1.0. I have included NOMAGENT2 in the list because it is in Gertís movie, but I havenít been able to find a corresponding CPF file for it. Enjoy!

Hi James,

Thanks for the compliment. In case I forgot, the movie is to be found on Vimeo:

http://www.vimeo.com/846830

BUT, I'm busy planning to make a new version: 2.0

I read books and online articles about the techniques of whitebalance and colors on a videocamera and it might change the way of making the whole movie. The main difference is the way how I first set the whitebalance on the camera and then use the preset.

Secondly: The color temperature of the light. It changes with the time of day and because of that you have to change the color temperature on the camera too. And because of that I might make several new presets for the different time of day.
I could do it the other way around: select preset and then do a manual white balance, but I think the other way is better. So I hope this saturday will be a real nice day with great weather so I can compare these two methodes.

Results will be online after that.
