Hi Robert. These setttings control the way Auto White Balance, works. I never use that function. I either white balance to a white card or use the 3200K/5600K presets. This is particularly important as I normally shoot with 3 cameras and I need consistent WB with all of them. I suggest to stay away from AWB.

These settings are for the way detail works. There is a post from Tim Dashwood about this with samples he took. Search in the forum. I would suggest to print a relevant chart and do your own testing. I didn't touch the factory settings. When shooting CUs of people I tend to use a 1/2 Classic soft diffusion by Schneider.

Then TC2 or TC3 would be perfect. Contrary to what some people said, TC doesn't crush the blacks. The blacks are there and can be manipulated up or down with the right color corrector and calibrated monitor. Good luck with your project.

What I have in here is:

V/H Balance: Normal
H Freq: High
V Freq: High

Don't know if these could be better, "better" being a totally subjective value :), it's definitely worth investigation.

Hi Paolo,

What are the differences, in terms of overall "looks" between your TC1, TC2 and TC3? Or is it just a progressive improvement on each?
