I looked for a thread that goes over this but i didnt see one.
So we tune our video cameras to get the look we want. I used to use paint chips. Ive been using the Kamermann app for just under a year which allows me to tune my iphone 4 screen then i pull the lens place the phone against the lock ring and hit the wb switch. granted you need a presaved screen for lenses and conditions but ive done that. And i can tune it for a range of outputs i think it will get viewed upon. And i get some pretty cool looks. BUT and this is a big one. A bit back I was running some footage through my processor and i saw shadow noise. "WT#!" "how longs that been there?" turns out the answer is since is since i started using the app. So im pushing the amps in the camera too much i guess. So i need to do a true white balance and use cc filters?
And if im gonna buy new ones of those to fit my mattes, Im gonna do the dark clothing test and see if i need an ir cut while im at it.
I dont really like these ideas. Stupid matte boxes are heavy enough already.
Whats your guys experience?
