Bass Pig's XDCam Picture Profiles
This is the humble beginning of my efforts to cook up some nice picture profile recipes for specific shooting situations with the XDCam.
Let's start with three that appear below, next to the Standard profile:
"Wedding" is one that I am evolving for wedding shoots. It's look is warm and it covers up complexion imperfections. Detail is dialed down, color is stronger, certain color matrix values have been adjusted to bring out skin tones and foliage greens. Color is warm and "creamy".
"Fine Det" is a more video-ish look. I've set the detail amount to a positive value, while setting the frequency very high to avoid bringing out too much false contouring. The black and white limiter settings do a nice job of clamping the false contour, so this fairly aggressive sharpening looks clean.
"Night" is an aggressive stretch of the dynamic range. I found that I can shoot under streetlights in the night and see way into the blackness of the night a hundred or more feet from the street lamp with this profile. Brights are clamped gently, while shadow is opened up for a brighter look. Makes a good night vision picture that mimics the human eye.
