The last couple of years have been a log-jam for me. I did not spend a huge amount of money, but I did wind up with more cameras than I expected, and I could not get around to using them all in the ways I wanted to. One in particular -- my Sony a5000 got some fairly good use as a "still" camera, but I had bought it with the intention of using it, roughly equally, for video. But with the purchase of my Canon R70 and Sony CX405 camcorders, and the Yi-M1's 4K video capability (and the Yi's rapidly changing firmware through 2018) I ended up not using the a5000 for video. This is a pity because aside from the lack of 4K, it is actually the best interchangeable lens "camcorder" I have. The 4K in the Yi-M1 does not have the basic controls for contrast, sharpness and saturation, which means that I have to have conditions close to ideal for its use. The Sony a5000 has all this, and even a 24 mbps "FX" quality at 1080p at 24 fps. The CX405 camcorder goes further, supporting 50 mbps @ 30 fps, 1080p using the XAVC-S codec, but again, it also lacks the basic controls for contrast, sharpness and saturation. So after all these years (over two) having the a5000, I was looking at the possibility of a project which needed the versatility of the a5000. In fact, at this point, I also have the Olympus OM-D EM10, which also has these abilities, but it does not have the quality of the a5000. At 30fps - 1080p (its maximum capability) the Olympus only records about ~17-18 mbps. Anyway, I took the Sony a5000 and made my adjustments and tried a few test clips. When I brought the clips back and tried them, it seems I will be able to do this project. I do not however, know if it will get done, because I am currently too busy, but it is still nice to know that it is within the range of things I can do. The Settings: Sony a5000, lens 16 - 50 f/3.5 - 5.6 power zoom AVCHD 1920 x 1080, 60i FX (24 mbps) Clips 0005.MTS [test clip, not final settings] "Camera Settings" "Menu 4" "Creative Style" "Sunset" "contrast = -2" Processed Image: Smart Photo Fix Brightness Overall -3 Shadow 30 Highlights -5 Saturation 23 Focus 0 [recommended 8] White balance No Blacks = 10 White = 0 Looking at the final version, it is still a bit over-sharpened, so that I will probably reduce sharpening to -3, and reduce contrast all the way down to -3. I like the orange/brown colour of the leaves on the nearby tree, and the blue sky cleaned up a bit thanks to a bit of saturation. The Sunset "custom style" seems to have retained the warmth of the situation.
