I have a professional camera but I am not a professional camera operator. This comes under the ' I bit off more than I vcan chew' cateogarie of question.
Someone recently contacted me though my web site to ask me about setting up the JVC DV500/1 series and I had no idea.
I have had the camera a year or more but only today have I looked in detail at the menus and options. Obviously the thing to do is experiment but I wanted to ask first in case many of these things are best not touched and / or are not applicable to me.
Frame mode? - some fake progressive scan ?
Cine mode? - thru the finder looks like a whaccy gamma.
Skin colour adjust ? - is that for racists ?? lols.
Flare r and b ? - silly rock and roll dacing?
Detail - shrpening in cam i presume.
Detail v/h blanace?
Skin detail detect?
I found the gamma settings and will play there as I usually find myself upping gamma in post.
There are a gamut of colour matrix settings but that sort of tweaking surely can be done in post just as well ?
I aslo sussed black stretch and auto knee but usually forget to use them when neede - lols.
I hope someone much more expirienced than me will be able to advise ( Guru ?? ). The manual and google are contradictory and confusing about much of the above.
