My new PPs for FS700

After my first commercial shoot with the 700, I came back and decided to make some changes in the PPs I use.

I have another shoot tomorrow in similar very bright outdoor scenes in a theme park, I will be using #2 in my chart.

I was using the #1PP I had set up on Fridays shoot it looked fine but really had more dynamic range than the shots really needed, it really never hit 0 or 100 on any of the shots.

So that is why I sat down with my scopes again and aimed the camera at a mountain scene out my window in the studio, with bright blue sky and puffy clouds as well as shade under the trees and a bit of the inside of my office with a black leather chair and a Tiffany light turned on with warm incandescent bulb.

What I will do is look at the histogram and I have the zebras set to 100+, and basically that way if I never see zebras nothing is blown out, and I can balance the histogram so that I have all the shadow detail. Or I can very easily control what is blown out.

After a lot of experimenting this is what I came up with:

Re: My new PPs for FS700

Thanks Olof, those may come in handy soon. I'll share some PPs soon, but your #2 looks very close to what I did manually.

It will be interesting to see what, if any, the future 4k enabling firmware will have on the 700s dynamic range.
