Thank you guys

I got it now. I will try to adjust the WB later in NX. My subject is wildlife and I have no way of shooting a reference grey card for every occassion. It's also not practical for me to change the WB after taking the exposure. This will be a great help for fashio or studio shots.

Anyway I will give it a try. Thank you again. Have a great day

labeled "A Brief Explanation." This WB helps set proper exposure,
but basically assumes you are shooting RAW. You would then correct
for WB in PP using a gray card or some such device. I should suspect
that the WB adjustment that would be needed for JPEG would be

I guess in principle, when shooting JPEG, you could use UniWB to
determine the proper exposure then switch to an appropriate WB before
actually taking the shot. But this is going to be very awkward for
everyday use -- maybe for special occasions when you have plenty of
time to set up the shot and ETTR is very important.

So, basically, if you are shooting JPEG, whether or not with RAW,
this is not likely to be of much use.
