Hpx170 To match GH2 Help!
  • I have a hpx170 and a Gh2, I was wondering if anyone owns a gh2 and a hpx that knows the best way to get them to match.

  • I own both. What are you trying to get to match? Color?

  • yeah color, sharpness, ect. Ive tried Vibrant on the gh2 and it seems to be the closest to hpx

  • anyone else?

  • I have the HMC150 and the GH2.

    Vibrant on GH2, and 'spark F3' setting get it pretty close. I believe it's b press gamma, sharpness to +3, master ped to -5, chroma to + 3 or 4.

    I find cine-gamma on hmc150 and cinema on gh2 gets reasonably close as well.

    Both require a bit of color tweaking to fully match.

  • what hack did you use on the Gh2 and what W/b Settings? Wb settings are hardest part to me

  • hmc150, white balance on a white card like normal. GH2, white balance on a white card with custom balance set to a few ticks towards blue, and a few towards magenta. I use colorista to color correct, and I found that I had to pump up the contrast/saturation on the blue tones on GH2.

    The hardest part for me is getting the yellow/green hue out of the GH2.

  • I filmed a short using a HMC150 as a B cam last weekend and it wound up matching pretty well. With some slight color grading it's difficult to tell the difference in the footage. A lot of it simply came from lighting the scene well and matching the white balance and aperture I was using Sanity 5 and Smooth -1, 0, -2, 0 on the GH2. Not sure about the settings on the 150.

  • ok thanks for advice guys

  • anyone else?
