And it would be much easier to get better results if our Fujis had proper RGB histograms.

I am surprised there is such little support for my request for the feature:

I show some graphic examples of the problem and solution.

Trevor- I agree! The "white" histogram can often be misleading and cause more problems than it is worth.

I don't think many people "get" that t he white histogram is the sum of R+G+B pixels. But that if one colour channel (R or G or B) is overloaded/peaked out, the white-only histogram shows "all OK"!
