I've used the ex1 for about a year and find it's picture to be a bit washed out and lacking vibrancy in it's colors. I know nothing about the settings in "picture profiles." What settings or setting would I adjust up or down to get my picture and colors to look a little richer. I also find the picture to be a little on the green side when set to factory defaults.

Thanks

Tom, the best explanation I have seen is that given by Doug Jensen in his great EX workshop published on DVD by Vortex Media, in my opinion viewing this DVD is a must for anyone new to these cameras. He points out that Sony have deliberately set the defaults fairly 'neutral' thus enabling users to do their own 'tweaking'.

Having said that there have been many discussions on this forum on Picture Profiles which no doubt you could access.

Thanks for the advice. I did find some very helpful "basic" information on this and Sony's UK site.

Thanks. Went on a shoot yesterday using picture profile 1 with -16 adjustment to gamma and black gamma. I was blown away by how great the image looked.

So where are you guys running these functions. Here are my current settings.

Gamma Level: +2 (any higher and the knee starts quickly dropping from 109 IRE)
Gamma: Cine 1 (I tried using Cine 3 and this image instantly looked very poppy and video like)
Black Level: -3 (This puts the ped at 0. Anymore unnecessarily crushes the blacks)
Black: 0 (I experimented with changing these and saw no difference on a waveform to any part of the image)

This is my EX1 setting to match my VariCam It is designed for post color correction to be shown on HD broadcast . This is for a scripted comedy. The camera was teched to a DSC chart with whites at 80 IRE and all settings on as was the VariCam. So this is how the is set up when I shoot. It seems whites expose at 78 IRE for good flesh tones.
