which filmlook seems best?

A captured some sample video of basically nothing. I want to know which color variation do you think looks the most filmlike. This is the canon A1 with and without magic bullet looks. Also, these looks are observed with and without 55mm amber filter.

presets include (preset 18) panavision and a custom technocolor preset im working on.

here is the download link...

here are some stills of the canon A1 with the letus fe. They were taken with the panavision preset then CC with MB sharp look with gamma at -8 and contrast at +4. I'm working on the best film look for me, what do you think?

Thanks, Paul. That is useful. Which amber filter from 55 were you using? I'm seeing they have a number of different ones in the 55mm filter set. Thanks.

I looked at your stills. I like the overall look. The outdoor color was just how I like to set my xl2. I have never used the amber filter. So, I am curious what you feel that gives to your footage. I tried to upload you clips but couldn't find where to find the down load on the page that came up.

definitely a nice look
