For years now, AbelCine has been supplying our customers with scene files for their cameras. The Sony PMW-F3 is no exception. Picture Profiles can create different looks in the camera; you can check out the ones we created for the F3 here. You may have wondered how to get these looks from your computer to the camera – fortunately, the process is fairly easy.
There are two ways to load Picture Profiles into the PMW-F3. You can import only one select file, or you can load a number of profiles into the camera at once (download a zip file of all the AbelCine custom profiles here). The one thing to be aware of is that when you load multiple files via the Camera Data command, all settings may be affected, so before shooting, be sure to double-check that your resolution, frame rate and other settings are correct.
Watch my video above for a step-by-step explanation of this process.
