HMC40 gamma & matrix settings.

I just received my HMC40 and have been familiarizing myself with it so I am confident in using it before taking out in the field. We do primarily weddings and I know the HMC150 is better for low light etc... but the 40 fit the budget as we transition into HD.

Anyway I wondering what settings people are using for the gamma and the matrix? So far just playing around in the office I like and matrix=norm2 but I'd like to hear suggestions from those who have more experience with the camera.

I've been messing with mine a little bit today and came up with Low Gamma and Norm2 for the Matrix in addition to bumping up the Color Temp and Chroma some. Going for a slightly enhanced saturation with a focus on blues. Hoping it'll make the sky pop a little more. Also dropped the Knee to low as well. I'll hopefully get some footage with this setting here soon.
