Can you put all the files into a single zip?

It's a pain in the ya-yas to download those individually.

Thanks!

Updated Preset List

For those of you that arenít sure of the definition and use of the 23 preset adjustments and what they do, the attached XL H1 booklet will be useful. While the specifics mentioned in the booklet are related to the H1, and not the A1, the definitions and descriptions are valid for the A1 too.

I was wondering if anyone had any particular favorites for a preset when it comes to shooting water scenes, like lighthouses and boats out on the water? Something that may make the water and sky a nice blue and would work in sunny/bright conditions. I've cycled through the presets and there are a couple that seem a lot better than others for this type of shoot, but thought I'd see if anyone here had any suggestions from their experience. Thanks!

Marcel,
As the author of the REALITY preset I'm very curious about the changes you made. Can you please share them?

Kees,

I'll be glad to after I test it. I will hopefully be shooting footage sometime during this long, holiday weekend to test it. It could be that I can't improve on what you've done, then again... As soon as I have anything worthy, I'll post it.

Thanks for doing the work on the Preset in the first place!

I spent a little time working on some presets today and felt TrueColor and Panalook2 were tied for the most accurate presets. TrueColor may have been a little vivid and Panalook2 a little subdued and dim compared to what my eyes saw while shooting the test below:

I'm trying to do some low light tests to see how I can best get good, dramatic interviews without a lot of "dancing" in the background.

Roger Shealy Video

It appears to me that the Canon default and Truecolor are very, very close. Based on your video I really like the true color preset, at least for outdoor video. Thanks Roger

The TrueColor has a little more punch to it, the default Canon is very flat. I like to do most of my color enhancements in the computer at post, but I'd like to get it close to accurate in the camera and work from there.

I'm not in the game to spoil your pleasure, but it is almost impossible to judge settings seen in a compressed Vimeo movie. Simple as colors are completely off in the H.264 flash movs.

It is great to see the settings in a movie next to the other as a 'point of start', but more important is how a setting reflects skin tone. What it does in the shade parts, how it works on a white ball in the sun, the curve, things like that. Color alone is not the critical part and a flash movie can't show you the other elements.

my2ct: how more settings you create (lets go for the 100) how more confused you get.

True Color

As I see it, all of the video examples would be off by the approximate same amount and a comparison of one to the other (not the ultimate video viewed on a good monitor or set) would be valid. Tht's all we are saying. I reiterate my comments and thanks again Roger.

My pleasure Phil.

I enjoyed Gerts movie of a fixed background and it helped me get a feel for some of the options. The compression definitely causes some issues but hopefully it's one more data point that is useful.
