Re: 6D low light video

I thought you might have nailed it, then I checked the settings and the Auto Lighting Optimizer was off for both video and stills. 


My solution in the mean time is to use an external monitor.  I'm currently working on adjusting the setting of the moniter such that it will look as close as possible to what I see on the computer post shoot.


Thanks for the input

Re: 6D low light video

Ultimately what you see on the camera's LCD screen doesn't really matter -- especially when it comes to color.


The camera records "data"... the monitor presents the data as colors, but all that can be adjusted.  Your video software will handle that.


You would want to use a calibrated monitor (use a calibration tool to make sure your monitor is accurately displaying colors).  Otherwise everything you do to make it look right to you all goes out the window as soon as it's displayed on someone else's monitor.
