NX5U user settings to share RE: gamma & detailing

I will be receiving my camera in a few days...and if any users out there have experimented with custom gamma settings and custom detail settings, it would be nice to share so we could all benefit.

I will be looking to get as much detail in the highlights and in the shadows that I can. If I recall, Sony's preset cine gammas get you close, but they also desaturate I believe. But a little tweaking could notch up the color sat if that's the case.

The details settings are usually a mystery to most people...and the manual doesn't really explain what crispening is, etc. But if one got this nailed correctly, you might get a somewhat sharper image then most falling just short of increasing the video noise.

I'll be sharing my own settings once I have the camera in hand and have done a number of tests. In the interim I look forward to any custom recipes other users have regarding the gamma & detail settings.

Thanks, John
