It's a very correct statement as well.

AFAIK the in-camera whitebalance setting is only effecting JPEGs (and RAW previews). RAW data is raw, with no processing instructions (WB, sharpening, saturation, tone curves, yaddah...) applied. Of course opening a RAW in NX will respect all in-camera settings, but they can be adjusted. 3rd party converters will only read the WB data (some incorrectly due to Nikon's encryption) and ignore all other processing instructions - so the default conversion you see will vary by converter. Still the data part of the RAW file will be identical in all cases, the processing instructions in the header may differ.

Cheers,
Uwe
