Tried your HV30 settings. Blueish tint?

Taky -

thanks so much for posting your HV30 CP. I am also using the HV30 as Camera #2 to my A1. However, your setting gave the footage a severe blueish tint. Could it be that your setting is geared toward outdoor shooting, and the fact I am shooting with studio lights (tungsten) make the difference?

I am not so knowledgeable in the CP color settings. Do you have any advice on how to adjust your setting to match the HV30 under studio lights?

also - i ran test with both cameras on auto white balance, and both cameras on manual white balance, but neither setting made the problem go away.

Does everything in here apply to HV20 and HV30? Or are they separate?

Wouldn't a lot of the discussions here apply to both the HV20 and the HV30? If so, perhaps we should (if we could) rename the thread?

btw, what's the other thread you are referencing in your post - the thread on the HV30.
Current Audio Equipment: two AT822 mics, Sony MZ-RH1, and KE-110CCR. What else should I get for short films and recording stand-up comedy?

FYI, I shoot an HV20 and HV30 simultaneously as B roll for an A1, in HDV 60i. I edit in Avid and can find no difference between the HV20 and HV30. Same color balance, exposure, etc.
