Something super interesting/geeky looking on a Nikon Rumors post.
Custom profiles for Picture Control settings.
I think you can upload them to your camera using the Picture Control Utility.
It includes profiles for some classic film stock as well as modern cameras.
A friend used custom profiles to boost his blue skies on Ibiza outdoor clubbing photos on his 5D.
Alas I can’t try them yet as I just dropped my camera off for a service today.
Although I’ve not really recorded much/any video yet – as I have a Video capable DSLR and we do some video at work (my day job) I now keep an eye on some video stuff and read some video blogs.
Thought I’d share a feed/channel/etc which I’ve found particularly inromative – which is Film Maker IQ on Vimeo.
Here are a few of the video’s I’ve particularly liked.
Some are on practicalities of film making now, while others show the history of some of the technologies used over time and how they’ve shaped what we use today. All very interesting. Some are a bit technical, but then I’m quite a technical person.
Thought worth sharing.
