Purple Glitch of Death - C300 Mk II

I'm sure this has been discussed before but has anyone experienced this awful purple glitch with the C300 Mk II? (footage stills below)


I'm shooting a feature doc right now and it's constantly giving me trouble when shooting in backlight. Even rented another body and we're still having the same issue. I took it to canon and they said it was just normal and to avoid shooting in backlight. I do not believe this is acceptable for a camera. It's hideous and completely baked into the footage even in the log. Looking for any workarounds or advice before considering a different camera for the remainder of our shoot.

Re: Purple Glitch of Death - C300 Mk II

Hello BenJoyner, 

I understand that there is a purple tint to footage captured with the EOS C300 Mark II.  In order for the community to assist you, all the settings you used for recording should be detailed.  With so many methods to correct for something like a tint, it would be beneficial to the community if more information was present such as if this tint has been present in all your attempts to color correct.
