Comparison of Movie and Still Picture Profiles

In this lesson we’ll go over the first two picture profiles – Movie and Still.

Movie

Here’s what it looks like, in the Movie color space (In this order: -4, -2, 0, +2, +4, click to enlarge):

Movie

See any resemblance to Standard? Take a look right now?

Don’t see it? They’re exactly the same!

Still

Here’s what it looks like, in the Still color space (In this order: -4, -2, 0, +2, +4, click to enlarge):

Still

Another clone! There are slight differences, but it could be due to the flare characteristics of the lens and sensor, and nothing to do with the picture profiles, per se.

For this reason I didn’t test these against other color spaces. Clearly, Sony wants you to use the Movie color space for Movie and the Still color space for Stills.

Nothing interesting here. Let’s move on.
