Auto WB will give only almost correct results most of the time, and terribly wrong sometimes !

Control of WB is achieved by shooting RAW. (period)

Manual WB is quite straightforward, using a grey card. But then, natural lighting is constantly changing, so does the color balance !
(easy, someone said ? ).

I always shoot RAW + JPEG, except birding & action (depends on situation, I use a 40D). Mostly, I try to get the color of the JPEG's as accurate as possible in the situation (as a reference), in a hurry, I use auto WB.

-But then, just by using the K (Kelvin) slider (or simply keying in the number) in any RAW-development software, the white balance is 'spot on' !
Yes, THAT'S easy !
