Preset for a church sanctuary

Anybody have a favorite preset for shooting in a church sanctuary?

This would be under lighted conditions...with minimal outside light.

Recently, I recorded a speaker in our church sanctuary using no presets other than that provided by the camera.

This video will end up on our local television station.

I used 60i and shutter speed of 1/100. I used the indoor white balance setting and auto gain.

Truth be known, the color was actually pretty accurate to what I saw in the sanctuary...somewhat on the drab side.

I can enliven the video with the software I use but I would rather record the video with something that enhances the video a bit more.

Back to the original question. Shooting indoors, in a sanctuary, any presets recommended?

Oh, by the way.

I recorded to an XLR input on the A-1 directly from the board. The speaker was using a headset.

Coming from a recording background...I was very impressed with the sound I got on the A-1 this way.

I was surprised how natural and up front the sound was that I recorded. I'm certainly pleased with the sound recording possibilities of this camera.

Take care all.

And thanks in advance for any help provided.

I use Panalook in our church, it perks things up a bit but not too much. also just keep settings on "auto" and get consistently great results.
