Just a quick thanks for all your help and input over the past couple of weeks.
Fortunately the deadline for getting the footage in was extended. This enabled me to really hammer the points made on here into my synapses!
It's all now second nature for me to back focus check; white balance for each scene; check the zebra/exposure...etc.
I do all pretty much without thinking now and the resulting footage is far, far superior to the old 'winging it' days.
Bit of an art to manage the exposuse I find (using the zebra) - guidelines help but it's only when you consistantly check your work at the end of the day when you realise you may have slightly unexposed (getting buildings to be lit without blowing the sky takes a little practice).
Maybe a cliche to suggest that you're best learning from your mistakes, but these past couple of weeks have demonstrated how true that is.
Sorting out these fundamentals allows me to concentrate on the myriad other techniques/applications that you find in this game.

Thanks again folks.

How do actually change the white balance to a level higher than 5600 on the HD200?
