    I gave up. It is so reddish it is unusable. Gone back to the Leeming LUT One that nails the skin tones.

    My opinion is that Panasonic colors are accurate and close to what an eye sees. Usually no need to add red. Canon colors are too sweet and warm and little unrealistic.

    Why use AWB with EOS PRO COLOR? Usually people say it is a stupid idea to use AWB.

    I have done more tests and I found that bringing it down to between 10 - 30% works best depending on profile/ situation for my tests.
    But it is still an easier step for fast turnaround projects than trying to add some 'blush' with color correction. I also film with daylight balanced lights, so this could be fantastic when I want to add a more tungsten feel.
    Its a nice tool (for me), but I wouldn't call it a fix. Not that the GH4 needs fixing with regards to its color in lit environments. Just an option.

    Nice comparison Matt. But what yo are comparing is not a standard in camera setting. You are using the settings in camera are set to work with this LUT.  What a more useful comparrison would be is the shot with he LUT applied (Std setting set per documentation) versus another profile with no LUT. i.e the Natural profile which does a very nice job on skin tones. 
     
    The comparrison you presented here is the same as comparing ungraded versus graded raw footage.

    Thank you for the confirmation. But in all my tests, it is sooo red it is unusable without another correction to bring down the reds. White should be white, not light pink. So adding this next correction is defeating the purpose, is it not as I am bringing down the overall reds rathe than the skin tones.  To me this look totally unnatural. 

    I have never used a Canon camera but have a shelf full of Panasonic cameras. I am thinking it is the Canon shooters should have a LUT to make it look more realistic, like a Panasonic.

    I have had conversations with both Curtis Judd and Caleb Pike, both huge GH4 users. Neither use any LUTs and their videos look beautiful.  I guess there is a reason I never used Canon cameras.  :-)

    Those both don't look very appealing skintones wise if you ask me. But you know, subjective and all. I'd probably push it more in the direction of something like uhh... (lol @ red/pink shift due light emitted from behind the monitor)

    I have been testing the LUT and are some what disappointed in the huge red shift int he highlights on all my test shots. I have been using the LUT One by Paul Leeming up until now. It preserves skin tones beautifully while Andrews LUT add too much red that has to be dealt with as an extra step. I have the settings configured per the instructions that came with the download. The only thinng I am not doing is using Auto WB. I do nt see why that would matter. I use a custom WB on every shot and have done so for 30 years. I also have a color reference in most of my shots, as was the case in these tests. 

    The first image is un adjusted. The WB is correct as evident in the 90%, 40% and 10% traces of the grey scale swatches in the RGB parade. 

    The second image is right after I apply the EOSHD Pro Color for Panasonic LUT.  Notice the 10 IRE increase in red in the highlights.
    Does anyone notice this extreme red shift?
