Gday Daniel

Nightclub lighting varies heaps - and it's damn near impossible to get all the WB and exposure factors 100% 'right' when you're not totally in charge of it all

From my mucking around in such places I use
WB = AWB
Exposure = -1EV
ISO = 800 to 3200
plus a lens hood

The biggest danger in night clubs is the rotating laser-beam lights - various colours. If this laser flashes across the sensor it will destroy the sensor

Hope this helps
Phil
