NX1 Eterna Profile

Recommended Posts

Hi Gals and Guys. I've been trying to match the NX1 to the Fuji Eterna profile in camera for a couple weeks and think I finally have it dialed in.  Here are my settings:

  • OLED color - ON
  • Picture Wizard - Custom
    • Color Green .95
    • Saturation -3
    • Sharpness -10
    • Contrast 0
    • Hue -6

Using FCPX and color match I'm able to get it to match perfectly in a click or two.

If anyone has other ideas or better settings I'd be happy to try them and post results.

Why the OLED color ---> ON?

Do you know its significance?

This is something that I never use. 

I thought OLED color only changed the way the screen displayed color, not affecting recorded video. Correct me if I am wrong.

 

.95 green, -3 sat, -10 sharpness are all pretty common practices. Hue -6 is new to me. Since you are using picture wizard, I assume you are in normal mode and not GammaDR. 

 

Are you using a color checker? How are you comparing the nx1 to the fuji?

Yes normal gamma. I also thought the OLED setting only applies to the monitor but it seems to shift saturation in the actual recording to my eye and also to the monitors in FCPX.

For the Hue, I had never adjusted it prior to trying to match the two cameras, but found the eterna profile to shift much cooler than the NX1. I’m sure the same could be accomplished with altering the white balance as well. I think the Fuji cameras have comparable white balance to the NX1 but it trends a little cooler.

overall I love the match I found. I haven’t tried matching in premiere or davinci yet. I’d use it on a job for work if I had to.

I will take a test tomorrow with oled on/off with a color checker and see if I can determine a difference. Will post back in 24hrs.

I can confirm that turning OLED Color on/off creates a visible difference when shooting a colorchecker. Attached a photo of each. Looks like a bit higher saturation overall, but it is also not linearly increased for each color. Rather, blues seem to be a bit higher in saturation with OLED color on, and the magenta trace seems to pull true to magenta, while the magenta trace pulls slightly to the blue side of magenta with OLED color off. Also, my wallpaper, which I consider to be in the white family but containing some color looks much more yellow/warmer with OLED color on. However, the white squares on the color checker are almost identical between on and off, so white balance isn't really affected directly.

It's crazy but awesome how much stuff can affect the image on this camera. 

I always thought the OLED Color only tied to the LCD screen as well.

Thanks for putting the work in on this one, I'll have to check it out.

 

I don't have a fuji, but being able to match Eterna is pretty awesome
