PP Setting For Z1

Has anyone played around with the PP setting and managed to get rid of the slightly pink outdoor color the Z1 produces?

I have assigned the outdoor WB shift functions to two of the buttons on my Z1 so I can easily tweak the color towards blue or red, and find this really useful. The other thing that you should play with a little is the color correction function. This is one of those things which I haven't seen discussed much on the Z1, but it's potentially very powerful. Unfortunately the manual doesn't describe it very well, so you just need to get in there and play with the menu settings and observe what happens. It is accessed directly from the menus and not the picture profiles.

Ditto. I have two buttons assigned to the white balance. But the default colors don't need correction in my case. Well perhaps they might on the cinematone mode a bit.
