That's interesting. That would explain some excess grain in the blue
channel. I guess maybe my advantage is that I often shoot in mixed light,
not straight tungsten. Where do you find such places other than people's
homes any more anyway. But there are times when I do shoot that way, and
get very good results. And it's something I'd rather not filter when I'm
shooting hand-held indoors. But I'll look for this absence in the blue next
time I do it. Thanks.
