D800 firmware update does not significantly change Auto White Balance
5 months ago

Below are two photos taken in warm artificial indoor lighting using Auto White balance (Auto1) on default settings. The first is taken immediately before the firmware update, the second immediately afterwards. The images are jpegs straight from the camera and the only modification is to downsize them for ease of uploading onto DPReview.

There is very little difference in the auto white balance performance, both images have that sickly yellow cast that we all know and love from the D800 under this sort of lighting.

For comparison the third image is from the Olympus OMD EM10 using auto white balance under the same lighting conditions. This image is a much closer representation of how the colours actually appear in the room under the light source.

Nice to have trap focus back though.
