I'm shooting a short film on DSR 450

Suggest me good settings which will give me a good look

Its entirely a exterior shoot in a spooky location with a lot of trees and huts

Thanks

I would suggest film gamma 1, knee off and 30p if it's going to stay on video and 24p if you are going to actual film. Good luck!

I agree with Stephen and would further recommend you consider Detail OFF for a natural, artifact free, filmic look. If you are using more than one lens, check your white shading and consider doing manual adjustment
as the 450 does not have auto white shading. You might also experiment with Knee Saturation if you choose
to use the Knee circuit, but it should be used carefully, just like Knee Point and Slope to avoid compression of
flesh tones and phony saturation in same.
