FS700 PP settings. What are you using?

Hi All ~

Trying to find some other operators favoured PP settings for normal day to day shooting that doesn't require a great deal of work in post. Skin tones especially.

I find the stock colors on the 700 a little bit too magenta / pinky / red. "Piggy" skin tones as I know one camera op refer to them as. Do any of you ps have a favourite overall setting.

After some tweaking using color charts, WFM, Vectorscope and some real live humans I'm using PP4 but with ONLY the following settings changed to:

PP4
Gamma CINE 4 (to control highlights)
Color Level -2
Color Phase -4
Color Depth R -3, the rest at 0 accept Y +2

This setup is giving me pretty a pretty decent look overall that I often don't need to do any, or very little, CC in post for quick shoot 'em and deliver jobs. Not saying these are good for all or anyone but If any of you want to try them out and come back with any suggestions to tweak and improve them a little further, or if you have PPs of your own, I would love hear your thoughts.

I've found the Abelcine profiles work well for me.

Yes I've got all those and tried them all when I had time but still wasn't satisfied with the skin tones of most of them.

As I said just need something that looks reasonable for delivery for straight out of the box work. Shoot, edit, encode, upload and sometimes all in the same day. Here's hoping.
