Color Managed Video player..... OMG!!!!!!

26 April 2016 - 08:09 PM

Alright, for years I always feel that the color from my Panasonic LX100 and GH4 come out a bit flat. Lately I was processing some timelapse photos/video, and I was scratching my head about why the photos look nice in Lightroom but when the photos get exported, and when I view the photos from ACDSee, the photos look flat. That lead me to do some research/troubleshoot and found out the concept of "color managed" photo viewer. To spare the technical and boring stuffs, my monitor was calibrated with X-rite Colormunki Display so I always thought I was seeing what it's supposed to look like until I discover the whole color managed issue.


Anyway, do yourself a favor, use Window Media Player classic (https://mpc-hc.org/) and follow this setting (https://voxelium.wordpress.com/2010/09/20/icc-color-management-in-media-player-classic-home-cinema/) to make your Window Media Player color managed, so that when reviewing your videos, you see what the color supposed to be! Mac people, you're on your own since I don't use Mac. After done this, I'm much happier with the blue color that I'm seeing from Panasonic (shoot in "Scenery" color profile), I think it's just as good as Canon.

Panasonic GX80 5-Axis Image Stabilization.

The 4K camera scene is slowing down now that it's only Panasonic vs Sony. High frame rate 4K is still no where to be found. Panasonic seems to want to take on Olympus and introducing their own 5-axis Image Stabilization. So far it's not confirm that if the 5-axis exist when shooting 4K video, or if it's just their regular Power O.I.S. Something worth to follow if people are in the market for a camera that benefit photos and video:





SmallHD 501 external monitor is $300 off now

I remember someone mention about considering the SmallHD501 (don't know who). End on December 7 (US time Eastern time I think) B&H has it on sales now for $599 instead of $899. The Nauticam housing for it is $1600. I thought I should pass the info along if people are interested.




Here is the housing info:


I wonder if it can be used with my LX100..... time to research!

Best color from LX100

06 November 2015 - 08:40 AM

I belong to a LX100 Facebook group and someone posted this. It's shot with LX100, I think there is color grading applied. I asked the question but haven't get any response. So, how is it compare to Canon? I say darn close!


Super wide angle lens for LX100

02 November 2015 - 12:56 PM

Bluewater has a review for LX100:



One thing that caught my attention is they recommend wide angle lens:

"Dyron super-wide angle lens for awesome wide-angle"...... I looked at the product page and it would give 140 degree view on a 24mm camera.


So, my question is, has anyone use the Dyron wide angle lens before? It's clearly cheaper than Nauticam WWL-1.


I had a bad experience with Bluewater before, they list a certain wide angle lens work the Panasonic LX-7, so I ordered it. Then turn out the lens give really bad vignette, luckily they let me return it even though I tried it at the pool. I stayed away from Bluewater since then.


So, thought?
