If someone else has seen these problems, and figured out a solution, I would appreciate hearing about it.
1. When I zoom in for an exposure, hit the exposure lock button, and zoom out, the scene looks overexposed. Evaluating exposure on the LCD screen is extremely problematic. Auto exposure doesn't always seem to yield the correct exposure, even in scenes without wild variations in luminance.
2. Skin tones seem very harsh; there's little detail in the highlights. I'm using the tungsten color balance setting with tungsten lighting.
For both problems 1 and 2, it's almost as if the camera gets "contrasty."
I should note that these are interviews, shot with the exact same Chimera/reflector/backlight set-up that I have used successfully for years with Beta and DVCPro cameras. I don't expect a GL2 to be as good, but I would like to coax a better image from it, and I would especially like to figure out the exposure issues. I can't always be lugging around an NTSC monitor in the field.
