Hello there,
I am not very pleased with the results I am getting from the PDW700. Looks like the camera has some dificulties with the highlights. DCC is behaving very strange and turning it of does not realy help much.
Does anybody has some experience with the camera and maybe give me some hints or even a setup that I could trye out?
Thanks alot and please excuse my bad spelling ;-)

Regards,

Stef

And turn the kneesaturation back to -36 or so. Helps a lot with highlights

You should probably use hypergamma4 if you want nice highlights. Sony have a whole stack of scene files premade too-
