    Anyone experience oversaturated reds on Zenmuse x5? When I shoot the red color is oversaturated and way to vibrant. Any ideas on setting to use in camera to avoid this?

    Yes this drives me crazy. We were filming at a location with a bright red bridge and the footage is unusable because it looks like a glowing magenta bridge in all the shots...
    DJI seems to have problems accurately reproducing red colours on the X5, you could try d-log.

    I think it just shows up DJI inexperience in camera production (again).
    I bet if you could put the X5(R) output on a vectorscope it would miss its phase on a few points!
    Because there is no paint/matrix options on the X5 offerings you stand no chance of getting it to hit the mark. :mad:

    Haha yep... the camera also really struggles if there is a reddish light cast on the scene you are filming... This drove me crazy with another recent shoot as it was for a boxing match where red lights were used at points to illuminate the fighters. Any time they were cast in a red light, all natural skin tones and colour was out the window and cannot be brought back easily in grading.
