Dp2M/SPP and White Balance
Following all the comments on this and other sites I have broken the habit of a lifetime and ordered a DP2M without having actually tried one myself before hand.
I have downloaded SPP in anticipation and note that the white balance settings are restricted to pre-set drop down values. As far as I can see there is no way to set the white balance with an eye dropper against (for example) a grey card.
There is a color correction wheel below the white balance tools. Can this set an accurate white balance from a neutral target? Or where accurate white balance is needed, is it a question of getting it as close as possible and then adjusting the exported tiff file?
Anyone have any experience of this?
Re: Dp2M/SPP and White Balance
You can use the eyedropper tool to set the white balance on a grey card, or fiddle around with the colour wheel. Its not very sophisticated.
I have found that you are better off abandoning auto white balance for many shots and instead using sunlight as a starting point. Auto white balance gives a cyan tint in sunlight.
But these details aside, you should love the camera.
