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.

S-LOG (G-LOG) for the SONY FS100 (updated)

What does a boy when alone at home? Right, he plays with his toys. I was musing over S-LOG for quite a while and was wondering if something similar – or at least S-LOGish – can be achived via the PP settings. So I looked at waveforms of S-LOG files out of the F3. I…

New GlenColor Picture Profiles for the Sony FS100

I just updated my PPs. Glencolor1 is for general use, mainly indoor. Glencolor2 is for outdoor – especially when sunny. After more testing…
