Tutorial - Color Correcting HDSLR Footage

I take a look at the differences between the 3-Way Color Corrector built into FCP and Magic Bullet Looks especially when it comes to color correcting or "grading" footage from an HDSLR that was purposely shot with without a lot of processing in the camera.
There is also mention of some particular things I look out for when working with African American skin tones.

This footage was shot with the Canon 7D. I briefly mention that I've set up the camera to improve the ability to correct it in post. I used Tyler Ginter's setup instructions.

Nice tutorial! The presentation was just as good as the content. What screencast software did you use?

Alex... i'm a ScreenFlow user, have been since day 1 when it was released. I love it and it has a LOT of flexibility. As a matter of fact, the double box and reflection gimmick at 2:10 in this tutorial was done entirely in ScreenFlow.

Very nice, concise tutorial. Here's the thing that stuck out to me - there is a reference to, "African-American skin." What is that? I have a friend who immigrated to the US from South Africa who is pale white AND a genuine African-American. The phrase "African-American" refers to nationality, not ethnicity.
