New files

Hey Javier,

Here are 3 new files.

All were shot at the -3 gain you indicated in the first post. The compression, again, is motion.jpg, and you have to click through a few pages to get to the actual down load.

FILE 1: Recorded with no presets for comparison. Factory default.

FILE 2: Recorded with your configuration from the first post. It is labeled as preset A.

FILE 3: Recorded with a preset I've been toying with for a couple of months. It is labeled as preset B. The settings are listed below.

Brian,

Great preset. I have all 3 open at the same time, and paused at the same section, so I can compare directly.

At first glance, my preset is the most stylized, while yours is the most natural. The default looks a little bland, and although it looks to have good latitude, the highs are already blown out (the clowns face.)

For the specific shot you did (products), I like mine the most because it's eye catching. However, if there were a person's face in there, yours would be the best. Notice the color of the wood cylinders. Yours looks the best and your preset would be great for skin tones.

The other thing I notice is that I don't see a difference between my -6 and your -3 Master Pedestal settings. I think this has to do with the Cine gamma starting at a lower point than the Normal setting.

The challenge is going to be getting a stylized, rich, contrasty look while still keeping the skin tones looking natural. Perhaps playing with the RGB gain controls will help in this.

Anyway, great job. I appreciate your help a lot.
