To celebrate the launch I’ve programmed up some favourite settings for a variety of scenarios including Broadcast, Live, Cinema, VR and more and you can get them here FREE by downloading below. Please don’t forget to sign up to my site as I’m always giving out stuff like free LUTs and other things you can buy to help you in your work.
The DWDBGH1 settings are programmed to best suit each scenario. The manual settings have the Shutter programmed for the bottom right ‘programmable’ function button. The ‘P’ (aperture/Shutter Program Control settings keep the WB (White Balance on the bottom right because they don’t need shutter control (it does it for you). Inside you will find ideal settings and frame rates for all scenarios. It’s simple to switch between them from the Custom setting menu.
