XHA1 and 5D MkII
Anyone tried to match the A1 with the 5D?
Any custom preset out there?

I don't have the answer, but a bump for a great question.

I find Vivid RGB is the closest without tweaking presets too much.

I'm using Neoscene to convert all 5D footage to 29.97fps. I shoot everything on my Xh-A1 at 30f witch is actually 29.97fps as well. Put it all together on a 29.97fps timeline in Premiere CS3 and you are good to go. Looks awesome!

Is it possible to apply this preset on the Canon 5D Mark II DSRL? I've just seen a wonderful video on Vimeo that was shot using these parameters and I was wondering if I could do the same on the 5D.

Here's the video:

Here are the parameters:

Gamma: Cine1
Color Matrix: Normal
Color Gain: 25 (This is about the limit. Adding more color does very little to enhancing chroma and does a lot for introducing unwanted noise)
Color Phase: 0
Knee: Low
Black: Middle
Master Ped: -5
Setup Level: 0
HDF: Mid
H/V Detail: 0
Sharpness: 0
NR1: Off
NR2: Off
Coring: 0
Red Gain: -2
Green Gain: -2
Blue Gain: -3
RG Matrix: 0
RB Matrix: 0
GR Matrix: 0
GB Matrix: 10
BR Matrix: 0
BG Matrix: -13

I did some tests are while back for this: NaturalO (from the preset stickies here on DVinfo) on the XHA-1 and Standard setting on the 5D2 work closely together. Fix the white balance on both to daylight (you are best to do this on the 5D2 anyway - the AWB setting will give mixed to nasty results). Any fine tuning can be done in post.

For footage, convert both to ProRes LT and mix them there.


Very important: set the 5D2 to shoot in sRGB, not Adobe RGB or you will have big problems with colour
