Re: Auto White Balance is magic, and magic can go wrong...

Thanks for the explanation, Paul. I know how AWB works, but it's still appreciated. <-winking smiley here, which currently doesn't work on the forum

My experience is practice is somewhat limited, though. I expected that AWB (on the E-M5) would come up with more consistent results when the scene, frame, target and colors are mostly the same. Especially since I got the impression that the E-M5 got some good reviews concerning its white-balance (didn't specifically check for that, though). This is why I am asking for other experiences and hints around here, to get a better "picture" (pun intended).

As can be seen by my comparison table one cannot even completely rely on the features of raw software when a gray target is used. Seems like lots of manual work is still in order...
