Re: D5100 flat profile, how?

There are couple you can search for:

Alvaroyus: Nikon D7000 Video Tricks – Picture Control – Crushed Blacks | Alvaro Yus Audiovisual Productions

Flaat: Flaat Picture Controls for Nikon DSLRs - www.similaar.com


Personally I just shoot neutral profile. The flat profiles seemed to add noise in the shadows. Seems like the sensors don't like it when you take away the contrast.

If you loaded the provided Nikon software, they have a utility to build your own profiles. Copy to SD card and begin testing. I spent an evening building and comparing. Still ended up just using neutral profile.

After i set the neutral profile with the suggested adjustements i pressed ok but going on liveview i saw that the colors look not neutral but as standard as they should be when i shot in M or A mode. Is there something i'm misssing?
Thx

My friend just uploaded on vimeo


No CC no Grading just random shots of the little house. I see a lot of grain. I used the lens (of the kit) 18-105.
The aperture between 7 -11 Iso between 100-200 and i had2 Z96 Led lights and the lights of the place.
Any suggestion guys?

Many thx
