I wanted to share a quick 30 second shot from the beach next to LAX.
Caught a helicopter, car and plane. Canon 5Dmkii with a Helios 58mm f2 lens.
The VisionColor picture style (http://vision-color.com/) was applied with
recommended settings: Sharpness +1, Contrast -4, Saturation -2, Color tone -1.
The VisionColor picture was not graded or sharpened for this test.
FilmConvert (http://www.filmconvert.com/) was then applied using 3 Fuji film
stock looks (FJ 8563, FJ Super X 400, FJ Velv 100) with identical settings of:
Camera: Canon 5Dmkii VisionColor
Film color: 100%
Film grain: 100% using 35mm full frame grain.
The clip is played 4 times in a row showing each “look” then a split screen
with all 4 shots in it. FilmConvert creates a very pleasing and authentic film
look in my opinion. Let me know your thoughts!
