Vectorscope corrected HG3 Mult-Matrix settings

Spent an hour or two making adjustments on the scope in the multi matrix menu. The regular matrix was not able to adjust things properly, probably just useful for basic hue and saturation adjustments. Anyway, see below for a stock HG3 picture, and the adjusted multi matrix. I will post some night scene clips later today. I still need help to get saturation levels correct, as my scope only has 1x and 3x gain. I calibrated the camera using 3x, so obviously while the colors are on the correct vectors and balanced, they could be increased in saturation more. And the multi matrix on this camera is AMAZING, it has 3 adjustments for each color, meaning you can get all 18 DCS ChromaDuMonde colors in their little vector boxes. Well, you should be able to, noise levels not withstanding. Now I need a new chart! :)

Why are all my Sony camera weird on the green DSC panel? They insist it is YELLOW + or -, forget which one. For those not familiar with DSC charts, the "blue" panel is actually slightly violet, as seen in the second corrected clip.

Re: Vectorscope corrected HG3 Mult-Matrix settings

I messaged the HG3 multi matrix a bit more, and did a full standard gamma ITU709 profile as well. See the below link for what my ITU709 adjustments look like. They were all "in the box" on the vectorscope, do they look "too saturated" to you guys? If anyone wants the settings, let me know, they are a work in progress. Shot and uploaded as XDCAM HD422 720p59.94.

I just realized I neglected to specify this is on a PXW-X180! Sowwy.

Re: Vectorscope corrected HG3 Mult-Matrix settings

I'm getting one for demo next week so your settings would be useful, thanks!
I'll see how the Shogun's vectorscope looks with them.
