Picture Profiles for FX1000

As we all know the FX1k can't save and exchange presets like Z5 or Canon A1, so my idea is to create a list of all the settings you like to use and a short description of the results (and maybe framegrabs?). I like how Canon owners have those files posted and can exchange whenever they want. It would be nice to have similar tool available for Sony. I know that this topic was posted before but trying to organize a little, to make it easier to use.

Let me start with mine:
Gamma: Cine1
Blk: Compress
Knee: Auto
Color Mode: Cine1
Color Lvl/Phase/Depth: 0
WB Shift: 0
Sharpness: 0
Skin: Off
Result: A little film-look colors and contrast, but not too much, so usable in low light.

Here are mine. I'm striving for as much latitude as possible. Any comments to achieve maximum latitude would be welcome.

Gamma: Cine1
Blk: Stretch
Knee: Low
Color Mode: Standard
Color Level: 0
Color Phase: -1
Color Depth: 0
WB Shift: 0
Sharpness: -7
Skin: Off

And here is an example straight out of the camera and colour graded.

Re: Picture Profiles for FX1000

Amazing what the search function brings up....
Is anyone using ( or can recommend) a picture profile for the Z5 that is very-very flat for use with First Light LUTs.
I have been lowering contrast and applying Neat video on conversion to Cineform which gives a pretty nice result, but it would be better I think to capture the image that way to not lose any dynamic range.
So, is anyone using this workflow and can recommend a PP?
cheers people.

I too would be interested in seeing some settings for a flat picture profile in a Sony Z5. Would like to match it to my 550D.
