more F3 settings

although principal shooting is finished for now for this project (there will actually be another shoot for the long documentary with some race-participants from Scandinavia in August) we want to share more infos about the F3. Stefan is tweaking his settings based on our experiences on this project. Here´s his newest report:

something was missing... something that the vdslr have and the f3 hasn't.... a baked in look i mean. well, today i hooked up my d7000 and looked at my F3-profiles. something seemed wrong - not wrong, but different.... so i started all over again, and here's the vdslr match i came up with....

Level: -4
Phase: +2
R-G: 31
R-B: -9
G-R: -5
G-B: 8
B-R: +57
B-G: +9

!!!...this will make the reds go way too "orangeish"....!!!

so: go to multimatrix, do a region detection: select a red/orangeish region in your picture, and let the F3 detect this region
then dial in:
Axis: R
Hue: +35
Saturation: -37

i have to work with this setting to see if something goes wrong in skin tones etc, but so far i like this one...
try it out and tell me what you think!

  1. well, these settings worked great in one shoot, but not in the next. so right now the F3 is still in a "profile-finding-phase". Ignore what we posted only worked to avoid some orange tint in one location.....
