Z7 picture profile in nice afternoon light?

Hi guys,

I am using the Z7 with the Flash XDR for wildlife. My main camera is the EX3 but I need the Z7 for its extra reach.
Would appreciate if someone can help me with a picture profile for outdoors in nice afternoon light as this is when I am doing most of my work.

Thanks in advance,

Ofer Levy Nature Photographer

I've been meaning to take a day & really mess around w/ the Picture Profile settings, but so far I'm just using the standard settings.

I have a couple settings on my camera that a friend was messing w/ a long while ago just to have some funky colors.

One thing that I was amazed w/ is that you can balance your Picture Profile settings for a certain look in 3200k, then go outside & WB for 5600k & have completely different colors.

Once I get around to making settings that I like, I'll be sure to post them.

I am new to the Z7 and just barely scratching the surface but I used PP5 "Film Look 1" from the standard picture profiles. I was shooting early morning bright sunlight and I thought the image was spectacular. I think that would certainly be a good starting point.

I used the PP5 setting over the weekend for a wedding shoot and I really liked how it came out.
