"out-of-the-box" picture profile - What are you using?

About 50% of my work involve shooting for others when at the end of the day, I give the producer / client the footage and I have no control on what it's done in post. Most of the time, there is no grading at all done on the footage. So in these situation, I try to use a basic picture profile that will look good most of the time out of the box.

For now, What I do is using the stock PP5, whth the knee point set to 90% and the slope to -2. This way I get a great looking image, with a good balance of contrast and dynamic range.

But I'm interested to know what others do in the same situation. Do you have some tricks to share?

For straight out of the box I've also been using PP5.

I haven't experimented that much with non-stock profiles but it's on my to-do list. For client shoots I am using PP3 and for my own personal stuff PP4. In Avid Media Composer 5.x I can color correct those two very easily.

Frank, I experimented a bit with your C-LOG A profile, which gives a very nice flat picture for grading. However, not being a professional colorist I´d like to find a profile that better matches my EX3´s Cinegamma profile. Do you have a suggestion?

Frank, Your profiles are awesome. I use GLOG A a lot. But this is not an "out of the box" profile. I don,t think GlenColor is either. I would not let the footage go away with these profile when I am unsure of what will be happening in post (if any post at all...)

Have you tried my K-Tone?

It´s a out of the box profile.
You can push it further with the supplied LUT, but that´s more creative decision than a need.
