Here is an interest example of how the WB can be different in two cameras. This first photo was taken with my Nikon P-80. Notice the facial color tones.

I always use manual WB if I am not in such a hurry. Because I am never satisfied with the preset WB, especially indoors. On the other hand preset WB works well if the sun is shining and there are some little clouds in the sky to filter the sunlight. So, I advise you to use manuel WB too. Dont rely on the presets too much.

Mr. Meg-

You are really correct. I must admit that I have gotten out of the habit of setting a manual WB setting. I will re-take the photos using a manual WB.

Mr. Meg-

Manual WB is not an option on the Nikon P-80. However, the Sony H-50 has manual WB. This is what that photo looks like.

I've noticed a bit of "noise" in the sky shots with the Nikon P90 and used PureImage to clean it up. Then they look great.
I"m a little disappointed in that as there should be NO noise at 100 ISO.
With the Pentax K10D, there was no noise at all and didn't need any cleaning up.
Maybe this is the DSLR difference...

The difference is in the imager, Jack-

The Pentax K-10's imager is approximately 15 times larger than the CCD imager used on the Nikon P-90. I noticed the same small amount of noise in low ISO settings on the Nikon P-80 camera.

Following up on the Manual WB discussion: I did another photo using Manual WB on my Sony H-9 to determine how consistent the Manual WB settings were from camera to camera. The first photo had been taken with my Sony H-50.
