White Balance
In reply to digitalman4242, May 24, 2011

People are coming back to white balance. And in a way they are right. With spot on correct white balance it does look a lot better than if the white balance is slightly off.


And this is a big but...

White balance is a creative tool. With my D70 I could use the white balance creatively and deliberately set the white balance of to achieve the look I was after. For a long period I nailed the WB to 4800K and the results were really good. Of course the colors were different in different lighting but it looked cool. A warm picture was just warm. It still looked great.

But with D7000 this is NOT possible. The only time the skin looks okay is when the white balance is exactly correct. And I'm having big troubles getting around the fact that I now can't use the white balance as a creative tool amymore.
