Re: White Balance SUCCESS!!!

I think I figured out the error, and it was the preset. I tried going through and making sure that both cameras had identical presets using the XHTuner program, and at the performance this past weekend went through the presets during warmup and really liked the color in the Panalook preset!
Here are a few examples!

David those images look very good could you explain what camera settings you were using, was that manual and did you boost the gain at all.

Re: White Balance issue on 2 cameras (pointed at the same thing...)

Wow, the images are amazing. I am actually having similar issues with my XHA1S and XHA!. Surprisingly, the XHA1 is noticeably sharper and just has a much better image quality in low light. I'm going to try the panalock preset and see what happens.

By the way, how did you get the screen shots from the video?
