So all You Pro's and Newbies with the high end Pro Cameras, you still doing a Custom White Balance?

This question holds 100 answers and all of them are true; For rock concert photography the auto white balance will do good.

For city/landscape photography in daylight it is wise to set  the camera white balance to flash or your definition of daylight kelvin. (Never ever trust  your camera manufacturer preset of daylight temperature, it may be designed to perform in California while you are shooting in dark Siberia during winter season).

For a bridal portraits (especial standing under a green canopy of a tree) you better dig the go'old white card out of the bag.

And so there are so many more different situations, all requiring a dedicated attention to color temperature.
