Four new Picture Profiles for The FS100 2.0

The FS100 finally received the 2.0 firmware update, so it´s time for some new profiles.
My main goal was to get good looking skin tones at daylight. For other situations, play with the white balance till the skin tones are right and everything else should fall into place

For best results: Adjust your black levels to Zero (you can even go a hair below, as I have learned) for every single scene.

K-Tone 2.0

Based on the K-Ton warm, vintage, sweet home Alabama Kodachrome 25 look – here comes a new version.

Black Level: 0 (set per scene)
Gamma: Cinematone 1
Black Gamma High, +3
Knee 102,5, -1
Color Mode: Cinematone1, +7
Color Level: -6
Colorphase: -7
Colordepth: R +2, G +6, B +5,C +5, M 0, Y +5
WB Shift: LB-CC, -8, -1
Detail: Level -4, Manual off

G-LOG A 2.1

Black Level: 0 (set per scene)
Gamma: Standard
Black Gamma High, +7
Knee 105, 0
Color Mode: Pro, +8
Color Level: -2
Colorphase: -7
Colordepth: R -3, G +2, B +5, C 0, M 0, Y +2
WB Shift: LB-CC, 0, 0
Detail: Level -2, Manual off

G-Log B
This is a very special and more aggressive, almost gritty look.
It brings out every wrinkle in a face.

Black Level: 0 (set per scene)
Gamma: Cinematone 2
Black Gamma High, +7
Knee 105, 0
Color Mode: Cinematone2, +8
Color Level: -4
Colorphase: -1
Colordepth: R +7, G +4, B +5, C 0, M 0, Y +0
WB Shift: RB, -9, +6
Detail: Level 3, Manual on, V/H 0, B/W, Type3, Limit 7, Chrispening 4, HL. Detail 0,

GlenColor 2.0

A look you can use, if you don´t want to fiddle too much post.

Black Level: (variable – start at 0 and adjust to your scene)
Gamma: Cinetone2
Black Gamma High +7
Knee: 105% and slope +5
Colormode: Cinematone2 +8
Color Level -2
Colorphase 0
Depth: R+4, G+7, B+7, C+7, M+4, Y+7
WB-Shift R-B, R-7, B0
Detail: Level 0, Manual ON, BWType3, Limit4, Chrispening5

I encourage everyone to take those profiles as a starting point and tweak them till they suit your taste.
Have fun playing with them.

  1. Vielen Dank für die ganze Mühe, unklar ist mir allerdings noch, worauf sich die Parameter bei WB Shift beziehen, also z.B. bei K-Tone: -8, -1 für LB, CC oder R- bzw. B-Gain? Ralf

  2. Thanks so much for all your work on profiles, Frank, and for showing us how filmic this camera can look. I’m curious as to why you have gone away from an 80 knee to 105 or 102.5? Does it open up more dynamic range in the midtones by rolling off the highlights more sharply?

  3. Isn’t it also possible now to make picture profiles available for download and instant use via the firmware update? That would be great!

  4. Hey Frank,

    Thanks so much for providing these. Our production company just bought an FS-100 and we are really excited to break it in.

    Quick question– I’m a bit confused in regards to the black levels. You say for best results to zero out your blacks at every scene. Not sure what you mean by this… since I’m setting them to zero on the front end within the picture profile settings. Maybe you could offer a little more clarification and explanation of what you mean?

    Thanks again!!

  5. Hi Frank,

    Can I get an answer to the question below, please? I too am confused. Thank you, sir!
