    Yes, it is possible to film with aperture priority. Put the dial on M Cine (movie camera icon). Then in the upper left hand corner of the LCD screen touch the box. It will bring up a sub menu where you can choose aperture priority or shutter priority etc. You can combine this with auto ISO if desired.

    Although the clip wasn't particularly a beauty shot, it looked okay to me. The fault you describe is ambiguous. In other words, I'm not sure what your expectation is of how it should look. It would probably take only a minor adjustment in post to the white balance and exposure to bring it in line with your expectation.

    "The modified natural profile results in a slightly flat image, so it needs a contrast adjustment, let me clarify, a selective contrast adjustment, don't just crank the contrast slider and expect good results. "

    Hey Ima, could you specify better please? What do you mean with "a contrast adjustment"? I use Edius 9. I'm noticing when I shot with the sun at maximum, I need to lower it further in contrast. In post I always choose -2 or -3 to get good clips, I don't need to incresae the contrast.

    I will do that test. But I'd like to understand better please. Why are you telling to choose "M Cine" instead of "Natural"? I think "Natural" with -2 you get the flattest possible image with the GH5.

    Out of curiosity: in your opinion is it better to coose aperture priority or shutter speed priority?

    PS: sorry, I don't understand fine. where is "M Cine"? I read also the GH5 manual but I don't notice it.

    Tom means set the top dial (video icon), not talking about picture profiles.

    There are a lot of techniques for achieving selective contrast, I'm not familiar with Edius, but it should support "RGB curves" adjustments.

    Sorry but I still do not understand, also because it is not specified in the Manual. Please, could you tell me where it is precisely?

    Sure, I used it, maybe not correctly, but I have improved the clip. Now I see it a little better, but always ugly and I will never be able to add it to the other clips.

    It's difficult for us to know how it should look since we weren't there. One technique I use to help me grade an image accurate to what I saw, is to take a picture of the scene I'm videoing, and grade the video to match the photo. I find this method especially useful when I'm grading footage I shot in a flat or log picture profile.
