I'm doing a bunch of shooting outdoors mid-day. It's bright sun and dark shadows. Any scene settings people like in this setting?

I'd highly recommend bringing some reflectors and control the light. Filling in the shadows will help you as much or more than say reducing contrast in your scene file settings.

Here's another vote for using reflectors.

Remember that a large, flat surface like a reflector will tend to behave like a kite if there's enough wind.

Yeah, I'm just all alone here and I'm following someone who's moving around alot. Between the camer and the sound, i cant do reflectors (I'm aware the setup isnt ideal. C'est la vie.)

i was using these settings but the image, when i watched tonight, seemed to lose a lot of detail:
Detail +2
V Detail +2
Coring -2
Gamma: HD Norm
Matrix: Cinelike
DRS: +2
