Do optical WB filters improve RAW color latititude?

Re: Do optical WB filters improve RAW color latititude?

Thankyou. This is exactly what I suspected. I often shoot RAW thinking that I can always adjust WB later. Then I often have difficulty getting the WB in the RAW file corrected without something getting grainy, or banding. I use PS CS 5.5 but I am not versed in all the other software like Lightroom or DXO Labs. I would assume that these would drastically help though. But I also thought that it would be best to start with a RAW file with each color channel as close as possible to what the sensor is 'tuned' for.
