Re: Problem with D800 Manual White Balance

I would like to confirm this issue.
I have the latest updated D800 F/W. (B=1.01)

When I set the g4, Assign shutter button = Record movies, I can NO longer set the manual white balance, Pre will NOT flash regardless how long I press the WB button.

Switching g4 back to the default = Take photos, the Pre will now flash normally and I can take custom WB measurement.

On the other hands, by setting g4 = Take photos, if you accidentally pres the shutter button during recording movie, D800 will take a photo and also immediately STOP movie recording.
To me, I would prefer to set g4 = Record movies during movie mode.

I believe Nikon need to fix this F/W bug.
