Best Picture Profile / Master Settings for HPX 370

Hi Everybody,

I've been shooting on a HPX 370 for about 9 months now. Came up in the SDX-900 days, generally used the FilmLike1 setting and absolutely loved the image it gave (for an SD camera).

I've been running on the Film picture profile setting in the HPX 370 since we've had it. Sometimes (especially under great light conditions) the camera really surprises me as to how good the image looks for a cropped sensor. I will say that overall it creates a very decent image, but I feel like I could squeeze more out of the camera if I changed some settings around. The biggest issues I have are image aliasing / pixelated looking if you inspect closely and also how much the camera crushes the blacks.

So…what does everyone recommend for general settings on the Panasonic HPX 370?

Another piece of info, I push everything we shoot through color grading, so I'd love to hear some input on shooting flat and then grading later too.

All input is very highly appreciated!
