Contour flat picture syle for post production

civih Dec 10, 2012 01:54AM MST


every time I see Contour footage released by MSP I get blown away with their colors and contrast. It looks like they have so much more information to work with under post production do to less compression.

Do they have a firmware allowing higher bitrates or are they using some kind of tweaked picture style?

As we all know flat picture styles are very popular within dSLR filmmakers and GoPro has their Protune firmware, witch I think works pretty well.

Flat picture style often means minimum sharpness, contrast and less saturation. But at least on my C+2s less sharpness and contrast doesn't seem to work to well.

Contour, any advice to how C+2 owners can optimize their lighting settings with post production in mind?

Dear Civih,

Thank you for contacting Contour.

Don't know if you may of heard, but around the summer of last year Contour INC. went out of business. So that is a reason why we have responded to you before. As of the first part of this year Contour LLC was opened under new management. Hopefully you were able to find the answer you were searching for.

If you have any questions about Contour, feel free to respond to this email.
