HM890 Best night ENG settings

I found the "sweet spot" for image quality at night for ENG work. Video demo below was shot in 1080p60 50Mbps h264.

Cinema Gamma
Cinema Color Matrix
Adjust Green Hue -5
Black Stretch +5
Detail +10
Knee Manual 85%
Extended Shooting Mode

The cine gamma drops black levels, the stretch brings them back up, but leaves the blacks at 0IRE. Detail at lower levels will result in muddy high gain, and very difficult focusing. Extended mode adds 6db of base gain, and with most lenses, you will want to iris down to at least f2.0 to eliminate vertical smear. Lens used was a Fujinon 18x4.2BERM, shading off. Most of the footage will show a left side blur. I had this exact issue with an HPX600 as well. It's very annoying, and I have seen this issue on a second HM890 with 17x package lens. Lighting courtesy of a Lowel 100 watt ID light.
