Good shots there Mark. I know the area well ;)

What colour settings did you use in camera and what type of grading post?

Cheers,

Paul.

Hi Paul Thanks for your comments cine gamma 2 setting with the low noise option 1 at +6db and low noise option 2 at +9db...post grading very little except for some vingettes I left the exposure as captured rather than to lift in post...I think it makes it more real and true...

is there a definition for "low noise footage"?

Beneath the great looking shots there is still enough contrast in most of the scenes (lights + darkness) , making the work with xdcam hd not too difficult.

I faced most difficult situations in lowlight, low contrast scenes, where you can easily face noise problems at 6 or 9 dB.

Thanks Mark,

Out of interest, what edit software do you use to create the vignettes?
