D7000 WB question regarding setting wb from a picture within camera
10 months ago

Is there a way I can set white balance from a picture? I have a wb card that I want to take a picture of as a reference (properly exposed) and then use this picture to pick a spot on it and set the wb for.

Currently, I either try to do it by covering the whole screen with it and then taking a picture of it in PRE mode, or I take a picture of it then use post process to set the WB, but I'd like to see the correct colors while I preview them on the LCD screen.

any help on this matter? I know canon can do this, but i'm not sure about nikon.
