You can also buy a color meter to measure light temp and then manually set CT in the 7D. I haven't actually ever knew anyone who had one, but it is out there I guess.

Handheld colorimeters are BIG dollar items.

I cheat- Use Live View with Exp Sim on and select K mode in White Balance and rotate until what I see on LV screen matches what I see just above camera.

Has worked pretty good for me.
HTH,
