Alun-

I agree completely. Indoor lighting can vary all over the place. Therefore a manual or custom WB is the best solution and it is not time consuming at all.

Alun_D/Sarah,
are you setting a manual WB each time before taking indoor shot?

No, if you think you need a custom WB for an indoor shot you set the custom WB once, and the FZ 35/38 stores the setting (it has two memories for custom WB), if the lighting conditions change you will have to change the custom WB setting. Once set you simply select the setting and it will remember its last setting and stay there until you select a different setting.
It's very easy and quick.
1.Press joy stick and scroll across to AWB
2*****oll down to a "1" with two triangles underneath
3.Press the display button, a square will show on the lcd
4.Point the square at a white piece of paper and press the menu set button.
The camera will now store this setting as "1"
You can change back to AWB to go outside, then change back to "1" if you move inside providing the lighting conditions are the same. You can store up to two custom white balance settings.
Hope this makes sense
Alun

Steve-

Yes, I will set a Manual WB any time that I do not like the result that I am seeing on the LCD screen when shooting indoors. My first recourse is to use a stored WB, but setting a new WB is so easy, I do not hesitate to do it.

John-

That is the advantage of the FZ-35 group here in the Panasonic P+S folder. Everyone is pleased to assist. I am glad to hear that the WB assistance came in handy.

Have a great weekend.
