    Dear all,
    I played around using my friends d300s, and I noticed the white balance (auto) is not accurate, it's worst than d40x (which the auto balance is very good). My friend asked me about it, and when I tried it, it really seem off especially indoor, at outdoor it's more accurate. I've tried to reset the setting of camera, return to the standard, but not avail. The colour always too warm for the picture, but for the people face it's too pale.
    btw he uses 17-50mm tamron. After that I suggest him to use preset wb, and it's more accurate. Is it like that for d300s? or is my friend's d300s is defect?
    Thanks
    sorry for my english

    Use Capture NX 2 and the white balance setting won't matter.
