warming up PMW EX1 image

I know that Sony is known for the blue cast color palette and Panny is known for a warmer palette, are there any opinions on warming up the Sony image? In-camera or via Color? Filter and in-camera? Just filter? I have an upcoming shoot in a hospital and have concerns over an overly cold look.

Thank you!

If it was me I'd probably shoot clean (no filters) and do the color grading in post. Sure, you can warm up the look with in-camera tweaking and/or filters in front of the lens but you need to be using a broadcast monitor during your setup to make absolutely sure the changes are actually going to get you the look you're after. Normally the only hard filters I ever use are grad NDs or polarizers (for rejecting reflections in glass or water).

Interestingly enough, I find the unaltered EX picture to be quite neutral rather than being too bluish or reddish. For me that's a good thing because it takes a lot less work in post to achieve what your final look will be.
