recently i shot with red and i got quite hard 'look'. contrast handling is not up to the mark. it looks like SD. the problame happens both in outdoor and indoor.

please tell me how to overcome the problame

i have another project with red

i am working in india, outdoor light condition is as similar as other tropical contries.
is it a reason? if it is then why it happened to indoor

When you were on set, did you see that all the information was contained inside of the histogram? Or did you have two mountains at both the far ends? I could understand outdoors being a bit of a problem, but how contrasty were things inside? I think even if you know that you're going to go for that contrasty look in the end, you have to make sure that you shoot for the latitude that the camera is giving you, then tweak in post.

Can you post a still (a still with histogram would be ideal) or describe the problem in better detail?

Yeah, several stills or some motion footage at a the min.

What ISO did you shoot? What ISO did you render? Any filters?

Having shot 16mm in Rajasthan I can relate that the sun there is incredibly hot with very deep shadows. I used 16mm reversal for simplicity which was not a good idea as it turned out.

What are you looking at your footage in? If you are in just the Quicktime player looking at proxies, then you haven't seen what the camera actually recorded. Of course, you could have also exposed the camera improperly.
