11 looks compared

I was so impressed with the look of this footage I shot a few days ago that I thought it a good idea to compare the different 'looks' or 'presets' available in the Panasonic GH2. (also because I accidentally changed a setting and forgot which one I used!)
I shot this in full HD with the Lumix 20mm 1.7 and fader ND wide open. It's all straight out of the camera but I did lower the brightness by two nudges in FCP on the Nostalgic and Nature shots because they seemed too bright.

The settings for 'my film' are:

Contrast 0
Sharpness -1
Saturation 0
NR 0

(spectacular, eh? ;-)

  1. Thank you for this. It really helps showing the different GH2 preset looks. I also like your my film.

    Which look is best for post color grading?

    BTW, is there a way to download the original video for less compression artifacts?

  2. You're welcome. I think cinema, standard and nature are pretty good for color grading.

    This is 720P HD! The full HD does not look significantly different and besides, cannot be uploaded on Vimeo.
