However it'd be nice to see proper settings for both DVX and XL2. These are settings for just XL2.
Are they made to match default settings for DVX?

Hi,
I know this is an old thread, but where it says "WB: warm 1 (wb to light blue)," is that white balancing to a blue card, or is that a setting I missed in the camera? If its an actual blue card, is it a reference to the warm cards sold by Studio1?

You can white balance to something light blue or use the warm cards. I actually made a series in photoshop where I sampled colors from certain warm cards as well as various other colors and printed them on card stock with a quality laser printer. Buy a can of clear matte sealer at a craft store and you've got a cheap alternative thats pretty accurate.

Yeah, I'm familiar with the process. There are so many shades of blue though, obviously, and I was wondering if this was a reference to a specific card. One of the cards sold by Studio1 is actually called warm 1.

Marco,

That's how I read it, it would be nice to be able to adjust the color temperture in camera.

Bill

BTW; I made my own warm cards as well, althought now I have been using a 1/8, 1/4 or 1/2 CTB gels to warm thing up.
