PXW-X70 Assigning Custom PP's?

Hi, I'm a little unclear on how to assign custom PP's. I would like to customize a couple PP's, for example PP4, but I would also like to maintain PP4 default setting as well. I believe a custom PP can be assigned to a button when wanted? If so, how would I maintain the PP default when wanted? If anyone could please explain the setup along with the steps needed for each process to switch back and fourth I would sincerely appreciate it. Thanks, Ray

Re: PXW-X70 Assigning Custom PP's?

First, decide upon an unused PP (e.g. PP5). You can then do this:

Menu | Camera Set | Picture Profile | PP4 | Setting | Copy | PP5

Answer 'Yes' when asked if you wish to Copy PP4 to PP5.

You can then go into PP5 and adjust settings as needed.


Finally, you can use assignable button #3 (defaults to Picture Profile) to allow you to select which profile to use. Or, assign Picture Profile to another button as needed. As far as I know, there's no way to directly assign a certain PP to a button. You can only have it bring up the PP selection menu. Still, will be easy to switch between PP4 and your customized PP4 (stored in the PP5 slot)

The only thing that differentiates the PP's is the color mode and gamma. You can make any picture profile another by simply adjusting these two settings.

I use the same PP data in all of my PP's, I just have adjustments to the white balance in each one for various things like AWB mode.
