What is the use of the "Colour Temp" setting?
Sep 5, 2012

Although I occasionally use some of the other WB settings I usually end up in AWB most of the time. However the setting I don't really understand is the Colour Temp setting. I know it renders from blue-orange indicating cold & warm, which pretty much explains itself, but as I have all the other settings in WB mode, what does CT do that the others don't? thank's.
