oversaturated/ red Video result K7

When I use my K7 in Video mode the exposure is nothing like the very natural colours I get in Photo Mode. Much more oversaturated and too much red and contrast. I do photograph in the bright mode with all parametres standard and does get good colours in Jpeg this way.
Any suggestions why my video results are soo "bad" ?

Thanks in advance for your response

Try adjusting the custom image functions to decrease those parameters. I believe they affect videos as well as photos.

Thanks Adam for reply . i can try to change Custom image functions but I just wonder why the result of the movie is not same as my pictures in respect of red, contrast and saturations. I must say that on my camera screen the movie looks much better than on my computer screen. This however is not the case with the pictures I take that are o.k. on both screens
