As promised in my previous post, here is the K-Tone Picture Profile for the Sony FS100. Seems o be an appropriate time, since Kodak is on the brink of going chapter 11 – so we have a chance to get the “Everything looks better on Kodachrome” look over to our digital cameras. I was aiming for the Kodachrome 25, that got discontinued in the early 1960s.
Examples and comparison
K-Tone (this is as close as I can get in the camera)
K-Tone with K-Tone LUT
This is still work in progress, so check back from time to time if there is a newer version available.
K-Tone Picture Profile – version 0.6
Black Level: +1
Gamma Standard (indoor) Cinematone1 (outdoor)
Black Gamma: middle, +7
Knee: 80, -2 (with Gama Standard – indoor) 90, +2 (with Gama CineTone1 – outdoor)
Color Mode: ITO709, +8
Color Level -2
Color Phase -7
Color Depth: R+7, G 0, B+6, C+5, M+6, Y+5
WB-Shift: LB-5, CC+2
Expose 1-2 stops under and dial in WB manualy, by looking at skin tones only.
If you got the skin where you want it, all other parameters are fine (for that profile).
If you don´t shoot something with skin, a lot of that parameters is tied to WB and
since this is a “out of the box” profile, that requires no or less grading (depending on your situation),
try to get the look you want (close as possible) by dialing it in with the manual WB.
If you don´t know what a LUT is or how to use it in your workflow – all questions answered here
