Picture Profile questions

Bought this camera about 8 months ago and love it!

I have discovered the most up-to-date PDF document with all the different picture profiles and have tested them out to some degree.

With that said... I am trying to learn more about all the different custom settings within the picture profile submenus and how one setting interacts with another... Very little documentation on this topic and I'm afraid that my understanding of knee/shoulder curve is limited to human physiology.

Thanks in advance!

To give you a general sense of the conditions I shoot in:

1. controlled lighting / tungsten 3-point / talking head
2. mixed lighting (any combination of fluorescent / daylight, daylight tungsten, or daylight, fluorescent/tungsten)

and I do keep polarizer, ND filters in my kit.

If you haven't already done so, I'd recommend getting Doug Jensen's (Vortex Media) dvd on mastering the FS100. It's a great place to start, and an even greater amount of information.
