I didn't watch the game last night, but apparently there was a weird camera thing that made our unis look royal instead of navy blue...gorgeous.
Exactly and you cant adjust the color balance on the fly and get a consistent image because it will vary too much with the directionality and diffusion rate of the different types of light. Also the in game photographers often have strobes up in the rafters to fill flash and that can change the images drastically.
You're saying the 1 rink in the entire NHL that we've seen the Sabres unis look like they have bright blue in them, just happens to be the rink the home team's unis look best when THEIR blue appears brightest, & it's strictly a coincidence that this 1 rink throws the lighting off on professional television broadcasting cameras to such a degree? At least you are both stating that the cameras were set to their settings intentionally.
Check out the flesh tones in Sakman's post 540 in the Everything Sabres Uniform Related - Blue & Gold Please , and tell me that is Chad Johnson's normal skin tone. (Will try to add link in an edit. Don't want to lose the rest of my typing to add that post link in at present. Sorry.) Those cameras were not set to account for skin coloration.
It's like claiming that in the '80's it was just a coincidence that the football fields on CBS' s broadcasts were a way brighter green than on NBC's broadcasts. The cameras were set to make those images appear more appealing. Just like the Avs cameras are.
Edit: Sakman's post is now at the top of this post. For some unbeknownst reason, it keeps pasting there rather than here.]
