Hi,

I don't know exactly what features the XL1 has for modifying the picture in camera, but you can always start by white balancing on something that isn't white. However, the earlier you do something, the better the resulting image will generally look - doing stuff in post amplifies noise and compression artifacts, banding, clipping, and other things. Doing it in camera amplifies noise and clipping; doing it in front of the lens doesn't make anything worse other than any features caused by your camera's compression codec reacting to the different image data. Neither does lighting and production design.

So: lighting, production design, filtration, DSP, post. In that order, and in decreasing order of importance!
