ex1r beach mid day shooting question
on Nov 19, 2012 at 10:59:22 pm

Im doing some work on the ex1R for broadcast.
We are shooting mid day on the beach.

With my current settings I am getting a muddy image with dull greens. The sand and water looks horrible.

Does anyone have any setting suggestions for this type of scene?

My current settings:

f8.5 - 16 (give or take when i use nd filter 1 or 2)

0db grain
360deg shutter
gamma std3
high sat
5200k wb
knee 85 + slope 10
sat level 50
blk -4
blk gamma -20
shutter speed 1/500


Thanks,

What I'd suggest is to reset the camera to default factory settings and see if that makes a difference. Also put it onto full auto settings and see what that gives you. We had a similar thing happen to our EX1 and the reset worked.

Steve, first of all you need a wider aperture and you'll get it a bit wider if you set your gain to -3. Most EX users shoot with -3 gain if there is enough light to do so. I'm not an expert on PP's but I do know that some Knee settings try and compensate for over exposure and try and compress the video. I'd set your Profile to factory default, but don't go fully automatic whatever you do. Use the maximum ND, even fit an additional one if you can because you need to be nearer f5.6 0r f4 if possible. These cameras give fantastic pictures most of the time, you shouldn't be having problems.

On a really bright day - I used the highest ND setting, -3db gain, 2.8-3.4 iris, shoot 24p with 48 or 120 shutter speed - great results.
