It seems like among all the excitement about the HVX, that I'm the only one who's not so impressed with its ability to capture color...especially flesh tones.

I find flesh tones to be spiking in the red area of the spectrum and not at all natural looking.

Is anyone else seeing this?

I think as far as prosumer HD cams go, the Sony XDCAMHD is ahead of the game.

The HVX does take a certain of tweaking to arrive at what would be considered pleasing. Proper white balancing and lighting go hand and hand. As with all the new HD cameras it will take some testing to arrive at what you consider proper flesh tones.....
I see thousands of HVX clips and I know this camera when put in the right hands and set-up properly, will produce great results.
