How do these work?

*If you download the PDF, you'll also get a guide to help you get the gist of it

01

Load them up.

Go to the Picture Profile menu and upload the settings for Black Level, Gamma, Black Gamma, Knee, Color Mode, Saturation, Color Phase, and Depth. 

03

Shoot JPEG & RAW.

Set your camera to shoot JPEG & RAW.  The film simulations only affect JPEGs. This way, you'll have your straight out of camera shots & the RAW files in case you want a different look for those.  

02

Adjust Kelvin & Color Filter settings. 

The recipes also have specific settings for the Detail feature in the Picture Profile menu. Add those in. Then, head over to White Balance and adjust the Kelvin accordingly., as well as the Color Filter settings.

04

Save your fav.

Sony provides 11 Picture Profile slots.. Once you add them, all you have to do is choose your fav one & start shooting. 

Does my Sony camera have the Picture Profile menu?

To check if your Sony camera has the Picture Profile menu, go to:

 

  • Newer cameras - "Exposure/Color" -> Color/Tone. The Picture Profile setting should be there. 

  • Older cameras - Color/WB/ Img Processing, and it should be there.
