I am now using a pair of 24" Samsung monitors, these are very stable and probably don't need profiling every other day. I actually profile once a week when I am not printing. When printing I profile before every job, this is mainly limited edition Fine Art printing rather than video editing.

I tried Andy's HD Norm profile with my HMC-150 and the scopes matched perfectly. I was surprised. The 2 cameras work well together. Great job Andy.

Or instead try the Pana HVX settings also posted in this thread - they look way better than the Vortex settings. Perhaps the Vortex settings are good if you want to fiddle with colors in the post, while my experience with the HVX PP-s is that most of the time no need to adjust color, the images look fantastic without touching them.

Edit: I just noticed that the HVX settings are quoted above my post. So you can easily find what I was talking about.

I am new on this network and mainly was interested in joining b/cause of the picture profile (PP) threads...

There is a lot of info/pages already - and I am a little overwhelmed by all of it - so, I am wondering what PP came out of Paul Cronin's thread already in 2008 (January 7th):

Quote:
My goal is to have a setting close to the rich colors I had on my Canon A1 with Steve's Vivid and still have rich blacks. More soon.
Right now, I am using a filter called "movie color" in post production to achieve a quite similar goal.

I am living and working in Mali, West-Africa though, where the sun is bright and surroundings are desert-y (a lot of brauns)...

Thanks for any input!

BTW, I am shooting with the Sony PMW-EX1

I decided to load up a few of the Panny/HVX picture profile settings. I did a shoot with one a couple of nights ago with the Cine V picture profile. I could hardly contain myself. Seemed so weird having the lush saturated Panny look in the Sony viewfinder.

Is there anyone here that is well versed in these Panasonic profiles and could sum up their intended use or look?

@ Jim

OK, so it is not me...thanks for the use full website ... it does look a bit more complicated than the presets Docea gave, for a PP starter like me, but I'll do my best :)
