Sony Look-xl-2

I should be receiving my XL-2 shortly. It will be among my arsenal of many video cameras :-)

Q: Can someone advise me of the settings to approximate the SONY cameras?

Thanks in advance,
Lou Bruno

Hey Lou, maybe it will be up to *you* to devise a Sony Look custom preset!

Lou has a variety of Sony camcorders, but you're right, Greg, it would be helpful to know which one in particular. That's why I suggested to Lou that perhaps *he* should develop that specific preset, and then share it with the rest of us!

Out of the box the XL2 matches pretty well, only slightly warmer. As said, it depends on the camera.

AH HA!!!!!!!!!!! Then I must introduce some BLUE....this should be fun.


Actually MOST SONY cameras are close in color. However, My SONY HD cameras have somewhat more "PUNCH" than my VX/PD series. I assume more saturation and BLUE should do the trick.


CHRIS.....nice to hear from you. I will be asking some questions when the camera arrives. Great to share some settings..........will make one up for SONY, JVC etc.

You can try to WB the XL2 to very light pastel green... might have to boost saturation a notch or two as well...
