In my experience with the DVX, the best way to get away from the digital look and more toward a filmic look is to use different diffusion filters. I personally like 1/8 Black Pro Mist and 1/4 Black Pro Mist, but really any Soft Effects or Pro Mist Filters will do. Also, I recommend throwing as much of your background out of focus. The best way to do this is to pull your camera as far away from the subject as possible and zoom in. Another note, white balance with a grey card, I also feel this helps the image.

And, even after you do all this, don't be afraid to alter the look even more in post. Color Correction offers you many different looks, like desaturating your image.

I hope this helps!

When I've shot with the DVX100B, these are the settings I've used for a "film-look" over and over again. If you want, you can change the chroma level to give you either a more saturated or less saturated image. Also, setting the color temp to -2 or -3 and then manually white balancing can yield a nice warmth that I've used a good bit for day exterior work.

Scene File F5:

Detail Level: -2
V Detail Level: +2
Detail Coring:0
Chroma Level: 0
Chroma Phase: 0
Color Temp: 0
Master Ped: -6
Auto Iris Level: 0
Gamma: Cinelike
Knee: Auto
Matrix: Cinelike
Skin Detail: Off
V Detail: Thin
Gain: 0db
Progressive: 24P
