Yes, but the question was if it was done intentionally and this was not mentioned, so to me the blacks looked crushed, something that has been mentioned more as a unwanted result when trying to colorcorrect pocket cam footage and this is not a camera flaw. For my Canon 550d I used the cinestyle preset a lot when it got real dark as it made a lot of difference, then I just had to drag a lut on top of the footage in Edius and that gave me a very good starting point to continue grading the footage, there should be something similar for pocketcam footage?

Hi Noa,

Since you are using Edius it only took me several minutes to set up a terrific colour mapping preset and save it as a cutomer preset. I only made a rough one to use on my sister-in -laws wedding, but if you start with 'combine filters" preset, add a YUV curve or two, then a three way colour correction to get out the slight green twinge, then tweak the overall colour using the colour balance, you can easily create an easily adjustable general use starting point for all corrections.

I keep changing my preset and re-saving it (using different names)as I fine tune it, or deal with different situation so I am getting a library of effects. Makes life easier!

Cheers,

Vaughan
