PICTURE PROFILE SETTINGS - SONY HIGH DEFINITION HVR-Z1P CAMERAS

Z1 Picture Profile settings.

For those of you who like to experiment with the Picture Profile settings, here is a list I made of each, where it's easier to see and compare the differences between them.
At the bottom of each setting in the MENU is a RESET option. Particularly, if you have been playing with someone else's camera remember to RESET before returning it!
To get there press - PICTURE PROFILE (button at rear of the camera) then select which one you would like to see - scroll to SETTING.
