Disjecta

Here's a new "disjecta" setting that I've been working with almost exclusively and, to me, it most closely resembles the look and feel of my DVX although the setting just feels right to me for all applications.

The previous disjecta setting was fine but didn't necessarily render color accurately, giving the image and exaggerated warmth.

So attached is my favorite and permanent general setting.

I call it "Panalook"

Thanks, Steven! Speadsheet updated. Added "PANALOOK" by Steven Dempsey, see his post above for the .CPF file download. See the first post in this thread, on the previous page, for the Excel spreadsheet download.

Test Shots

So here is a sequence of test shots. One with each preset (sorry to the author of 12, I accidently didnt roll on that one)

These were not in a controlled enviornment so some minor lighting changes may have occured. They were taken 1 hour prior to sunset with a shutter of 1/150, F6.2 and Daylight balanced. I began with preset 10 through to 17, then from 1 to 9. Dont ask for a reason to my madness.

They were exported with final cut still image JPG best quality. They came out in 4:3, but you get the point.

More controlled tests to come.

I thought it would be handy to compare them side-by-side (or so), so I have posted them all together at the following link:

Forgive me - I'm not a web-page guy.

Thanks for the quote. I hope to get some better footage up very soon. I have some clips, but am waiting for some web space from Chris.




Looks like the photos saw some quality loss in the process. If you get a chance, the high rez photos are available if you click on the thumbnails.

Yeah - had to down-rez them to get them to fit on the page - otherwise you'd be scolling forever in all directions and that would defeat the purpose of seeing them side-by-side. Like I said - not a web-guy, but if someone knows how to make them smaller to fit on the page and not lose quality (using photshop), I'm more than happy to repost them.

I was thinking that just seeing the difference in the handling of color and light might be enough to give folks an idea of what each pre-set does. From then on they're on there own

Do you have your forum settings set to show images in the thread? If you choose that setting you can see the images thumbnails side by side, you could copy those very easliy.


thanks again

Heck - If I had known I could do that, I never would have posted them to begin with. Thanks for the tip! :-)

JBe 1&2

I like these settings, they compensate for some of the colorspace loss of HDV.
I like what the Negative Coring does to the texture of any noise or gradations (by making it grainy instead of blocky). Otherwise I would call thesr settings HVX

JBe_1:

Gam:1
Knee:Low
Blk: Pressed
Ped: -5
Set: -2
Sharp: 2
Hdf : H
DVH: 3 (?) I think it increses the vertical frequency
Cor: -2 or -3
N2 1&2: off
Cmx: 1
Cgn: 5
Cph:0
Rgn:2
Ggn:1
Bgn:2
everything else is O & I dial in the K to tweak


JBe_2:

Gam: Cine2
Knee:Low
Blk: Med
Ped: -5
Set: -2
Sharp: 1
Hdf : H
DVH: 0
Cor: -2
N2 1&2: off
Cmx: 2
Cgn: 4
Cph:0
Rgn:2
Ggn:2
Bgn:3
everything else is O & I dial in the K to tweak

Im likin the new presets. Thanks for posting them!
I think they will come in useful while out in the field.

I'm a little lazy and havent read the manual on this, but does anyone know if the camera has a maximum number of presets, or is it just how many you can fit on the card?

According to the manual - 20 can be stored on the mem card - but not sure if thats because of the card size or limitations in the software.

Technically it's 20 presets on the card, but there's a very cool trick which bypasses that limitation... see my post called "Practically no limit to CP files on SD card" here:

Anyone had time to play with color matching to an F900 or Varicam?

If it could be matched, or made close, that would be a great point for clients looking to rent a matching B camera.
