Maybe because the sony only uses one filter and I believe the Panasonic uses 2. If anyone has any of the vermillion left I would like to try that if not I am back to square one. If anyone has any suggestions please pipe in. Does anyone know what would happen if I ran it without the filter in place? To much blue perhaps.
If the sony uses the same concept of polarized filter and isn't just a color filter than more than likely they just use a different angle. if you cross-polarized, you will have removed all the blue inadvertently.
if you have the original piece you can hopefully determine this by holding the replacement piece of film in front of the original film and rotating one piece 90°.
When the film was still on the glass it was FAR more obvious, once i removed it it's much more subtle, mostly just chaining darker orange, however if it's not too difficult to pull the light engine out, trial-and-error may be your best bet.
If the blue is darn near gone then the polarizing filter is crossed or 90°, I would rotate the film 90° and re-install (of course you'd have to cut it down and it won't be complete so you'd need to get a new piece but at least you'd know).
I'm pretty sure you can use the film from 3D glasses, but you'd have to figure out the angle so keep the scrap for reference.
The correct angle is when it's brightest and 90° from when darkest. (eg. if i'm correct and turning the film 90° gets your blue back, use the turned piece as reference, and using the new film (from 3D glasses or 'clip on' polarized sunglass film), turn until it's as dark as possible then turn 90° it will be bright as possible (it's easier to see the darkest so I use that reference and cut it so it ends up 90° turned from the darkest).
post results if it works.
