ignoreme, it has been a very long time since I have been into the service menus, even if you found a place to chnage the whie balance IIRC that is not where you make the adjustment for that. I recall that there was a lot of conversation about the fact that full manipulation of all of the settings was not really possible, but excellant results can be achieved eve with the limited access. There have been a number of professional calirators lament the lack of full access but then come back and say they were very happy with the end calibration.
Anyway, I do remmeber that you turn on the option is ISF calibration (Day/Night) in the service menu as well as Cinema Smooth for 24p operation. The outside in the regular menu your white balance is set by the picture setting for Warm1, Warm2 etc. forgive me if this isn't exactly right I am going from emeory and rushing out shortly to catch a plane home.
Earlier in this thread are some posts by me and others that should specify each of the 'best settings' for a great picture, no horrendous allowed!
There will alos be a link or two to pro calibrators reviews that talk about all of the forgoing information, if I had time I would dig it out, maybe tomorrow.
Let us know how it goes, I know you have a Panny (no disrespect), but a properly set Sammy C series will give it a run for the money if not possibly win the race... ;-)
