NEX-5N - Need to set WB if shooting RAW?
May 18, 2012

Am I correct in thinking that, given that I am shooting in RAW now and post-processing in LR, is there any reason for me to use up one one of my 5 custom functions with the WB setting? Or can I just set it to auto and use the slot for something else, knowing that I will still get a loss-less image in LR afterwards where I can manually set the WB.

In other words, does the WB setting affect the RAW image captured by the sensor at all, and is it possible for me to lose information in the image if I do what I plan to above?

Cheers, sorry for my long-winded explanation
