Cant stop seeing Blue

Hey everybody, I have had my HM700 for about a month now, and have been shooting basically everything I can get in front of it. I have a whole bunch of different scene files saved, a few of which I have from here, and no matter what I do, everything seems to have a blue tint. I do shoot with the ND filter on sometimes, and I understand how that effects the color, but would something like black toe, or stretch have an effect on the washed out blue images I seem to be getting?
Thanks in advance!

Examples?

Is there any way you could post some freeze frames or video for us to look at?

Stupid question, but did you check your white balance ?

Maybe you are in 3200 K so all your scenes will have blue tint.

Best regards

Mike

Here is a screen shot,





and after checking the white balance, I think you might have been correct, as of right now its not 3200k but It very well could have been.

You need one of these. 72mm Expodisc "Neutral". I use it every day and I get fantastic results. It's magnetic and pops right on the existing uv filter.

Just do a reading and remove it. If conditions change just pop it on again and set a new reading. Easy as pie....
