    Hi all

    Just playing around with my *ist tonight (have to wait 'til the weekend to
    get down to some serious fun) ... has anyone else noticed odd results with
    the auto-white-balance - It just doesn't seem to guess right in tungsten and
    fluorescent light situations (the only ones I've tried) .. when set manually
    to these setting all is fine but results are more like daylight film when
    set to auto.

    Any ideas, contradictions or similar problems?

    Cheers
    John

    In principle, auto white balance can't work, since it's not measuring the
    incident light. So I don't get bent out of shape by AWB not getting it
    right...
