color level full right, sharpness, 1 left of the middle, WB shift varies for lighting, AE shift i dont mess with, and for shutter, 350-1000 in normal light, and try and keep the exposure at 5.6 whenever possible for fisheye

Clearly you're not a repair center. If you are, you're not particularly good at it. This is the most ridiculous thread I've read to date.

honestly, never put your color level up all the way, at least 1 down from the top, sharpness as they said 1 up from the middle, and white balance whatever.
also, if you change everything in your EVF settings down one notch it gives you more realistic colors (how they actually look on the comp), and also try and keep your aperture at f/ 5.6, or at night 9db. (5.6 makes everything crisper, and 9db gives little - no grain) never set your shutter lower than 60 or higher than like maybe 500. some people will say lower than 500

Doesn't matter how it looks on your computer unless the final destination of the video is a medium FOR the computer like the internet. The computer doesn't accurately show what your footage looks like.
The whole thing about keeping the iris at f 5.6 just seems silly, there's a reason it can be adjusted. If anything, try to keep it closed down more to get a deeper depth of field so you can avoid having to pull the focus while shooting.

well i think he means keep it around 5.6 for fisheye shots, i mean, there will be those exceptions (and properly exposing the trick is more important than having crisp vignetting) but for a general rule i try to keep it at 5.6


blurry vig just grinds my gears.

Everyone is saying sharpness should be at 1 notch from the middle.. I thought if you set the sharpness fully 100% to the right it would be much crispier and better?.. am I wrong?

Trying to digitally make up information that doesn't exist is rarely a good idea.

i alwys rocked my 2k at one notch lower than full sharpness and sat at about 2 up. without the sharpness i find footage looks too flat. i go full out with my fx1. full sharpness and saturation. it's a pretty poorly satrated camera otherwise and flat.

shutterspeed, 300 - 1000, always try to get the exposure at 5.6
whitebalance of blue, AE shift one click from the left, color two clicks from left
but in the end it always depends on the weather and time of day

Well Im not sure about this, but think of it like this. If you keep sharpening an image on photoshop there comes a point where it starts to be detrimental to the overall quality and appearance of the image. Id say the same is true of the vx1. Not to say that it has the same effect aesthetically, just in principal its the same.

The whole thing about keeping the iris at f 5.6 just seems silly, there's a reason it can be adjusted. If anything, try to keep it closed down more to get a deeper depth of field so you can avoid having to pull the focus while shooting.


This, the whole "F 5.6 ONLY RUL" is just another one of these elitist SP things.
