Here is some daylight stuff with the PFVision preset.
The first 5 minutes of the video is about some 80's DTM race cars and the last 5 minutes is from a modern endurance race. All last saturday at the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife in Germany. I really wanted the colours to pop, so i used the PFVision preset all day long.
I did some colour correction with Vegas 3-wheel corrector to give the first 5 minutes a 80's look and used my favourite plug-in, NewBlueFX video-essentials to give the whole video some extra punch.
Watch it here DTM-revival+VLN, Nurburgring Nordschleife on Vimeo

Thanks Tom,
The preset isn't available as download, but you can easily dial it in using the numbers in the first post. I did it that way.

Good luck.

PFVision

After Using this preset a couple of times at weddings, I will say that the camera has an awful time with focusing. The image is just too soft most of the time and seems out of focus. Even when I shine a 10w light on the subject does not help. Since it is near impossible to do a manual focus with XHA1 lcd screen it is just too difficult to keep up with fast paced weddings. Don't get me wrong, in a controlled environment the preset rocks but for run 'n gun at weddings not good. I agree with randy in an earlier post. I changed the coring to 0 and sharpness to 3. I also modified it a bit to help with focusing issue. Will test on my next wedding and post results.

Charles,
I've found the same problem with focus... It makes a huge difference in the low light capability, but focus is an issue. I found that if you keep the instant auto off, then it works better...

Just wondering if someone can clarify on the focus - are you saying that using this preset effects the cameras auto focus in low light situations? Or does the xha1 have a low light focusing issue in general? I was lead to believe that the xha1 was one of the best and 'quickest' auto focus pro camera's on the market...?

Paul, looking at the previous posts long ago always made me wonder just HOW any preset could affect focusing. It doesn't make sense at all, so I wouldn't worry about it. I assume the ones who mentioned it may have just "thought" there was an issue. Think about it... where does focusing come from? The lens! Presets basically are a "post process" in camera. So in other words that altered process of the image is AFTER what light is coming through the lens to make an image.

Video Shot In PFVision

Here's a video I shot testing the PFVision preset with -3 gain at an event called Word Of Mouth - Underground Art & Sound in Los Angeles.

First Time LA creates events like Word Of Mouth - Downtown Underground Art & Sound that bring together painters, photographers, sculptors, bands, DJs and multimedia artists in their downtown Los Angeles warehouse.
