You know, nothing compares to the WB of human eyes! Ah, only my main camera (K10D) comes close, IMO: ) Joke aside, this is actually what thescene looked like. Again shot hendheld @1/2''but with SR which I almost always leave 'on ' Needless to say, the WB was set simply to 'incandescent' !

Now! Again the back up D40x, the WB set to 'incandescent' but dialed to (+3)

This is one lucky stable shot I shot hendheld @1/2'' among many a trash!!

Looks likemy back upD40xcatches upthe 'main camera' -not% 100 though- don't you find?

Both seem adequate, although where possible a tripod would

be preferable to camera shake reductionand stong flash unit

is prefered over the onboard camera flash unit where cicumstances

allow.............................musket.

Thank you for the feedbackmusket !

I hopemy initial concernof attaining better incadescent WB performance from the D40x inmy last three posts, the first one of which is in page 1, was not confused much with the trivial handheld issue thanks to the circumstances allow in my dimliving room : )

I believe that see some easy color cast but don't see a problem in this. My camera almost never get white balance properly so I rarely use AWB, most of times I either select it from preset or meter with grey.

Thanks for your kind interest,mycolleague fromC & T forum: )The above tree pictures were [email protected] WB set to incadescend. Eh, looks like some cameras requiretuningmoreoften than others (even my powershot S70takes care of itself betterin this regard!). I attach againpicture #1from D40xwb set toincadescendbutwithouttuning..

my pleasure and thanks for sharing your experience since I need to choose camera one day and most likely have to do my choice based on online reviews as all cameras in my region need to be pre-ordered.

indeed, and this isn't surprising to me, as my older Minolta F200 have really good WB comparing to my current one and other cameras I've had in my hands...

Thanks for sharing this samples, Bahadir!
I've checked them and now it's look more strange than before as I don't see any color cast with Nikon but Pentax got some light yellowish cast ont he building walls and more warmer colors.
But what is interesting that on your photographs I see much clearer details on Pentax, but most of time in reviews I see more detailed photographs produceed by D40x.
I've saw exif and seems that shutter speed was two steps slower in case of Nikon, wonder if there was wind this day or camera was handheld which may lead to such loss of details?
