Hello, I've noticed a change in color temperature when I tweak the contrast setting on my Nikon D5500. I set the WB manually, same WB setting for both camera and here is the result: Standard Nikon color profile, Contrast 0, sharpness 0: Nikon standard profile Contrast -4, sharpness -4, contrast and sharpness edited in premiere afterward, but I didn't tweak the color temperature at all: H How do you explain that the 2nd picture is more yellowish? Does tweaking the contrast level in camera impact the WB? I prefer the 1st picture look (Nikon standard profile), as a result I don't touch my image setting anymore.
Last night I was looking on Vimeo at GX7 videos to see what other people were producing. For the most part it all seemed very casual, not much good stuff in there. But then I came across this: First of all you should know that I've been shooting with my GX7 for almost a year now and I've messed around with the camera settings and resultant footage loads. So I pretty much know GX7 footage when I see it. The video above looks completely different to anything I've seen previously.I remember a phrase Andrew used in one of his videos regarding the BMPCC, "The camera has a very filmic response to mid-tones". And I guess this is the only phrase I can use to quantify what makes this footage look different. If you look at the tags on the video above you will see a mention of "Tiffen Ultra Contrast 5". So I did a little more research and it seems these things had their hayday a couple years ago around the time when the GH1/2 and Canon rebels were popular. These days some people still use them even for high end cameras like the RED. Here is the description from Tiffen itself: I quite like the look that diffuser filters give and it sounds like the Low Contrast filter will give some of that look along with the softened contrast. Does anyone here have any experience with these and can make recommendations?
