problem downloading presets

At the risk of being a total pain, I've got to try again.

I can't seem to download these presets - am obviously doing something wrong - and am hoping for some help.

If I click on them they download an empty document. If I drag and drop them into a PRESET folder on the SD or if I right-click on them and save them to the desktop, they take me to a sign in page on this site, and when I sign in I get a message that no such page exists.

Apologies for being thick, but any help would be most appreciated. Am very eager to take advantage of - and hopefully add to - all the fantastic work that has already been accomplished with these presets.

If you're using a PC, then right-click and choose "save target as..."

If you're using a Mac, do whatever is the equivalent of right-clicking. (Control-click? I'm not sure.)

Thanks Chris. Finally figured out where I was being bone-headed.

It's intended for the XL H1 and we've passed this around in our H1 forum before. I just had not thought of posting it here as well, so thanks to Jay for the tip.
I tried to access the above link but got denied because I "do not have permission to access". Is there another link for the Canon USA guide to custom presets.

I just got my camera yesterday and had some trouble loading them into the camera at first. If you have some problems it might be a good idea to...

First put the card into the camera and save one of the camera's presets onto the card. This creates your PRESETS folder (which I believe is case sensitive) and you know your camera will recognize it.

Second, just pop the SD card into your computer and save all the presets directly to the PRESETS folder that the camera had created.

Third, pop that bad boy right back into your camera, and load in the ones you'll be using the most.

Hope this helps those just entering the A1 world

Hello,

I was wondering if there's a way to make the presets name appear on the display when shooting. Cause I can't remember if setting what all those settings are when just looking at numbers.

Hi Jeremy, unfortunately that's not an option. You'll have to carry around a small note card as a "cheat sheet" to tell you which is which.

XH A1 Custom Presets Test Images

Hey guys

Here are my results of testing out all the different presets from:

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/canon-xh-...rary-copy.html

I tried to maintain consistent exposure with the zebra stripes but was in a bit of a rush so the exposure may not be quite right on some images.

Can't get my image to display in the post, anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3147/...bf42506a_b.jpg

PRESET01.CPF "FACTORY" is simply the Canon factory default settings.
PRESET02.CPF "AC PREF1" is Alister Chapman's prefered general setup.
PRESET03.CPF "AVG FILM" is designed to emulate an average film stock, best used with 24F / 25F.
PRESET04.CPF "5248FILM" is supposed to emulate Kodak 5248 film stock, best used with 24F / 25F.
PRESET05.CPF "LOWLT12" is for shooting in low light with 12db gain.
PRESET06.CPF "OPTICONT" is for optimum latitude, similar to AC PREF1.
PRESET07.CPF "5296FILM" should be like Kodak 5296 film stock, best used with 24F / 25F.
PRESET08.CPF "TERRA1" is a soft unsharpened image, shadows retain detail without looking washed out.
PRESET09.CPF "TERRA2" is like TERRA1 but sharper, with coring turned down to keep noise levels at bay.
PRESET10.CPF "DISJECTA" most resembles the colors Steven Dempsey used with his Panasonic DVX100.
PRESET11.CPF "B&WJECTA" is B&W with detail in darks without blowing out lights, no diagonal stair-stepping.
PRESET12.CPF "NOMAGENT" negates the Magenta bias that some Canon owners detect in factory settings.
PRESET13.CPF "OUTSIDEN" gives the Canon a neutral image outdoors while managing bright whites.
PRESET14.CPF "OLEGWARM" is warm and saturated and film-like when combined with Skin Detail: Middle.
PRESET15.CPF "DVXMATCH" closely matches the Panasonic DVX100 at WB of 3200K; also try Knee: Auto.
PRESET16.CPF "EOSPHOTO" is optimized for Canon EOS photo lenses; much brighter with more contrast.
PRESET17.CPF "NATURALO" closely resembles natural outdoor colors, requiring minimum correction.
PRESET18.CPF "PANALOOK" is Steven Dempsey's preffered setting which accurately emulates the DVX100.

Not sure what you said Eduardo but glad to be of help.

To my semi-trained eyes presets 6, 7 and 16 (opticont, 5296 film and EOSphoto) look best and to my eye I can't percieve much difference between these three. Anyone agree/disagree?

Has anyone used any of these presets to make a film? If so were you pleased with the results?

I'm thinking of using Alastair Chapman's 5296 preset for my next film.
