Hi, I used to own this set and thread Member IMWS posted some spot-on settings back in 5/28. I thought I'd copy/paste for you below incase you missed it. Hope it helps....
So here are my Movie settings...
AV Mode - Movie
OPC - OFF as usual
Backlight - +16 this is the default
Contrast - +35 up a few clicks from the default
Brightness - 0
CMS Hue R0,Y-20,G+16,C0,B0,M+27
CMS Saturation R+10,Y-9,G0,C-5,B-10,M0
CMS Value R0,Y+15,G0,C+6,B+10,M0
Color Gamut Range - Expanded
Color Temp - Low, Low, Low...
Motion Enhancement 120Hz - Note using 240Hz results in a dimmer picture and reduced contrast so I'd love to use it but it significantly degrades the picture in my opinion so no go for 240Hz in any of the modes btw.
Quad Pixel Plus - On
Active Contrast - Off
Gamma Adjustment 0
Film Mode Off
Digital Noise Reduction Off
Monochrome - Off as always
Range of OPC - N/A
Under Power Control Set Power Savings to OFF
That's it. Compared with my standard mode settings there's still a hint of yellow green to facial tones compared to standard mode, but it could be that the standard mode is just a bit on the reddish pink side. Both modes look good to me for flesh tones at the end of the day. The greens have this warm yellow tone to them that looks very nice and perhaps inaccurate but I like the result. In any case give it a try, take some pictures before of your movie mode and then after with the settings above. For those that have a camera that can be manually adjusted, here are some settings that will give you some decent screenshots.
F5.6, Shutter 1/125, ISO between 800-3200 usually 1600 is the sweet spot with my Canon. If the ISO is the limiting factor then you will have to use a tripod with a low ISO say 100 and shutter speed that is quite a bit longer say a 1/4 or 1/16, you will have to pause the image to reduce blur with that long shutter speed and the tripod is a necessity at such a long shutter speed. If you like the standard mode settings that I published before you will like these Movie settings as well.[/quote]
