Flat RAW Files

When I open RAW files from my Canon 5D II they look VERY flat and, generally, horrible. They look as if a linear gamma curve is used which wouldn’t generally be an issue for me because that’s the way I work in Capture One Pro. However, using the Basic adjustment doesn’t get me even close to a nice looking base file to begin working with. In C1, I would typically start with a curves adjustment, but I haven’t found a curves tool in Studio. Does anyone know of a tutorial that shows working with RAW files? Ideally, working with 5D II files would be great!


There’s a Tone Curves adjustment in the drop down list.

Smacking head! I just didn’t see it. Thanks!
