pdw-f Series : Favourite Settings?

I know abouth the cam presets on the sony website - but I want to start a "realworld users" preset exchange.

After some settings have been posted IŽd be interested if some of you have created dedicated Matrix or Cam settings for high contrast scenes or "glamour shots"

Anyone?

Thanks

I got a PDW-F335 2 weeks ago! What a great camera and a big step up from my "old" JVC GY-DV700 camera. The JVC had about 6 or 7 menu page's, and the Sony has.... well a lot more :-)

Today my camera was calibrated my a professional engineer here in the Netherlands and these are the settings he came up with, and which I like;

A49 MATRIX 2
User matrix R-G: 16
User matrix R-B: 6
User matrix G-R: 2
User matrix G-B: 17
User matrix B-R: 6
User matrix B-G: 4

The Cine gammas give much more dynamic range, as long as you're going to do some sort of grading, otherwise they look very flat.
