Before and after Test. GH4 Using i.Resolution, i.Dynamics, Master Pedestal Level, 16-235 Luma, CinelikeV with -5 Sharpness, -5 Noise Reduction, -5 Saturation.
I wanted to see what in camera colour profiling would be like on the GH4. For this test I put the Luminance Level to 16-235 opposed to the higher 16-255. Mostly because I want a simple path of handing on files to production without wording about Luminance clipping.
Starting at Cinelike V I reduced the sharpness to -5 to take the edge away from the USM style in camera sharpening. I also but the Noise Reduction to -5 to remove the plastic mush that can occur in the images. I set the Saturation to -5 and +1 on Hue for personal preference.
Next I pushed up the Master Pedestal Level to +15 the factory is 0.
I then brought up the i.Resolution to ‘Standard’. This helps reduce the noise a tiny bit, trade off is slight.
Finally I set the i.Dynamic to ‘Standard’ too. This will really lift the image. On exterior daylight shooting I have set to high with great results.
If you treat the image to be colour graded you can reduce the blacks and mid tones done a little for taste. Its a much cleaner way then pulling up in post.
This never used to be the way, especially with the Canon. anything adjusted in camera would result in image deterioration.
