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

dear, stop worrying about WB and cards... what you really want is good skin tones, so just get a software that will allow you to set the proper skin tones quickly instead juggling w/ various WB cards and stupid Kelving/tint values... that's it.

like SilkyPix (albeit I am not using that specific functionality) has a tool to select a skin patch and and then it just sets WB to make that area looks like Japanese think the good skin color shall look like (granted their idea about the color of the skin is not what we, non Japanese, want, but that gives you an idea that world beyond LR/ACR is beautiful and diverse)
