I am about to start a project on HDW 750 or 790 25P for DVD release...

we will have time on the field to shoot nice, but the director asked us not to wait to post to adjust the image... so...

what kind of settings are worthy to do on the field?

wich kind of filters or paint menu settings would yo reccomend me?

any website related to this? any place to get the HDW 790 manual (i could't get it on sony's)?

any other tips?we are looking for a nice, soft, contrasty and classic-modern look. the topic is sex in the world. and the visual reference some way between wonk kar wai films and modern TV commercials... (director's words)

WICH KIND OF LIGHTING EQUIPMENT WOULD YOU RECCOMEND BEARING IN MIND I WONT HAVE ANY GRIP OR ELECTRICIAN HELP???
 
You can white balance in the field to get closer to the color you want, or use filters and gels. You can adjust the black level when necessary. It all depends on how much manipulation you really need to do in the field. I would keep thing simple.

If you're handling all the camera and lighting yourself, there is a limit on how much you can carry around. It may be no more than an Arri or Lowell kit of lights, or a few Kinoflos, and maybe a Chimera for some of the lights.
