Here's my mandatory random images montage. The camera came yesterday, so I woke up first thing this morning to grab some shots. Now I'm stuck inside waiting for Fedex to arrive with more stuff, painful. I'll have something to post with more substance by the end of the weekend hopefully.

Here's the profile I used. I'll be tweaking a few things here and there.
Black Level - 0
Gamma - Cinema tone 1
Black Gama - Middle and +6
Knee - Point 75% Slope +1
Color Mode - Cinema tone 1 Level 7
Color Level - +1
Color Phase - 0
Depth - All 0


All straight from the camera, no color correction. I list my lens for each shot until a new lens is used.
Download the quicktime to view.

And the rig
Berkey system baseplate and new FS100 cheese plate. Waiting on my Z finder to ship. The lens is a Nikon 300 4.5. They can be found for cheap, definitely a fun lens to have, especially with the FS100's low light capabilities.

footy looks great. why is your cheeseplate not powdercoated? is that an option or do you have a prototype?

It's actually platinum ;)

I live nearby Berkey Systems, so I have this until it gets anodized.

MN winters will do that

Yep, definitely room for improvement. On some shots, I was probably a bit over exposed, still gotta find that sweet spot for the knee settings.

Berkey's here in MN? I'll have to look them up. Nice shots, camera image looks good.
