How would the card know what is suppose to be bondi-blue and what isn't? Why would they go to the trouble for Panasonic.
You look like a opinionated man.
If you never heard about something then this is not a sign to people that there is no a phenomenon in nature.
I have a Panasonic Plazma TV and there is a very little blue color shift in my video whereas I see a strong bondi blue color when watching the same video on my PC. The color correction function of TV helps to mask the defect. Some people already reported this info before me. The same situation can be achieved on some PC videocards.
I have supported the thread about shaking\\jittering issue during last 6 months. This is an unpaid work. But I'm happy if I helped only 1-3 owners in the World. I was the first who updated my camcorder and fixed a shaking issue and I have immediately reported there:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...7#post19575077
If I never posted this info then we never see the happy posts like this:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...4#post19718794
because Panasonic keeps a secret.
I have posted in this thread also:
* how to avoid the problem by means of "indoors 2" fix
* how to correct a blue color shift in Adobe Premiere without touching other colors.
|I was always very happy with my TM300, as I've said many times it did have a bias towards this bondi-blue on occasion and your suggested switch from manual to Indoor2 and back again did see a shift to more blue, and I have agreed there seems to be a firmware bug. It never detracted from some great footage and memories I captured with it. Besides I've had camcorders with worse colour problems than that! These are consumer products and are not colour calibrated to be exact, for that you would have to have access to the individual RGB levels and have test equipment to set it up perfectly for every scene.
Did you read my first post in this thread?
I wrote: This thread was created for those who want to make the most of xx600\\700 camcorders.
|Camcorderinfo when testing these 3MOS Panasonic range of camcorders show they have the best colour accuracy in their class. So I suspect this is a complicated issue, and probably would largely go away if you stopped looking for it by pointing the camera at the sky and playing about with white-balance
Never trust commercial reviews, commercial sites, magazines end etc.
They will never be unbiassed because they write reviews about Panasonic, Sony products and at the same time they have an income from advertising (from Panasonic, Sony etc).
|The other option is to just sell or return your camcorder for a refund and buy something from another manufacturer.
Thank you for allowing me to sell my camcorder!
|The SD900 hasn't shown any of the bondi-blue characteristics from what I have seen.
You have always promised to post there your new camcorder's clips and have never posted them. And I know why. You are afraid of your own disappointment. I know that TM900 is good camcorder. There is nothing to fear. I wanted only to compare with results of others.
This site is for ordinary owners. We free of commerce and we can achive an objective results.
|I'm leaving this thread now. I wish you good luck in getting Panasonic to admit to these issues and that they fix it to your liking.
If you wanted to leave this thread why you did not live it without saying the such "well-wishing" goodbye?
Panasonic-Russia promised to answer me and solve the problem (they confirmed problem). After your post I do not know whether share this info with others or not.
