    Hi,

    Every time I manual white balance my DVX100B there's this tiny green tint on the footage - I have tried different completely white surfaces to white balance but the result is the same - I need help here.

    I have posted two photos - one of actual footage, and another footage after post editing in FCP (this is how it is supposed to look)
    - The photos are not affected by artificial light, only daylight through the window.

    My settings:

    DETAIL LEVEL: -3
    V DETAIL LEVE: 0
    DETAIL CORING: 0
    CHROMA LEVEL: 0
    CHROMA PHASE: 0
    COLOUR TEMP: 0
    MASTER PED: -5
    A. IRIS LEVEL: -2
    GAMMA: CINELIKE
    KNEE: AUTO
    MATRIX: NORM1
    SKINE TONE DTL: OFF
    V DETAIL FREQ: THIN

    PHOTOS:

    Also might be a good idea to let the camera black balance before a shoot. You generally only have to do this infrequently, but it helps.
    If the image from a properly white/black balanced setup are consistently a bit too green for your taste, try white balancing through a 1/8 minus green (magenta) filter to correct the image for your eye.
    Or: it's an easy fix in post.

    Please explain your manual white balance process.
    Are you zooming in on something 18% gray, white or the tiles?
