CANON EOS C300 COLOR GRADING TESTS

Thanks to Mario & Nino for uploading the MXF files so that this lil test was possible!

the first scene i traded quite "usual" just a lil push here and there ... skin tones, contrast, richer colors... stuff like that... i "protected" highlights in the back window tho'

all the rest - especially in terms of high ISO performance - i did push much more - to see what is possible ... and there is a lot of "play-room" for a grade ... the grain / noise still looks very organic / filmic (almost like 16mm) even at the limits of what is possible.
even a hard color push / tint is no real issues if you watch your blacks ... kinda awesome!

and at no point there was any artifacts you are probably familiar with from DSLR h264 or even XDCamEX or AVCHD stuff ... that is really nice!!!

over all ... great footage to work on!

i used FCP7, Colorista 2 for all the Color Correction and Magic Bullet Looks 2 for all creative Color Grading
