But Tina, you can set a custom white balance - using a gray card - which
will get you close, and then make any final adjustments in PS that you need
to do. Like you, I don't shoot hockey games - though I do shoot weddings,
which can be even more drunk and brutal ;-) - and I often shoot in changing
light. I'd much rather have a good starting point than having to start from
scratch in PS with every image. I find, unlike what someone else said - you?
- that PS does a surprisingly good job with it's 'auto' settings in the raw
converter. They're not always right, but they're surprisingly close - and
often good enough to churn out small jpgs for viewing.
