Default D100 color control

A tip for new D100 users. I like to warm up my images and discovered a logic to Nikons color control which is not immediately obvious. Starting at the "sunny" white balance setting, I found the following to be a total incrimental, linear way of adding warmth to your images for correction or special effects. If you try a test in this order, you will see that it is exactly the same as adding progressively warmer filters: Sunny +3, +2,+1, 0, -1, -2,-3, Cloudy +3,+2,+1, 0, -1,-2,-3 Shade +3,+2,+1, 0, -1,-2,-3. Note that Sunny 0, is nuetral (no color correction) Sunny +1,+2,+3 adds blue, but everthing else adds progressive warmth. I hope this was not more confusing than it was worth.

Default color control

Thanks! I've had mine for a few weeks now and noted my flash WB images a little blue (it was set on +2), I have re-set all the controls.

This was one of those little tips that are really valuable and make visiting this forum worth the trip!
