- The problem with colour is colour balance mainly, not exposure. The "Tungsten" setting doesn't necessarily guarantee that it has the exact white balance of your lights. Are you using a Kodak CX7525? Unfortunately it looks like your camera doesn't support recording a custom white balance, which is going to limit your ability to get the colour right. Experiment with the different settings to see if you can get something better. You may need to apply white balance in post-processing. What OS are you using? I can look into options for fixing up your JPEGs. What you would be looking to do is shoot a pure white (not off-white!) piece of paper filling the image, using the Tungsten or another non-auto white balance, and use that to determine the colour corrections needed. That would then be batched in post-processing across all your images.
