I thought I would do a poll to see if this is an issue for others .... all of my shots indoors on my new 7D are much too warm .... I can correct it of course by going off of auto WB. Is this unique to my camera or is this endemic in the 7D ..... just curious? My A2 is perfect indoors and out ..... I confess that I am experiencing a bit of buyers remorse on the 7D and gaze affectionately at my A2 which has been superb for me in every way except for the obvious limitations of having only a 28-200mm to work with - even the EVF is looking OK relative to the 7D's viewfinder - but the [email protected] always did have the best EVF anyway IMHO .... Cheers to all.

Generally, Auto White Balance is for outdoor shooting where you may encounter sunny & cloudy periods. Indoors lighting is ususally incandescent (around 3200K) & will be warm to most camera sensors. Unless you're using a flash, try setting your WB at the preset for tungsten (the light bulb icon) or at 3200K & see if that works better.

Kalypso's advise and suggestion is100 percent on the money. I hadhad the same issue you are experiancing indoors and at first the only correction I was using was to use a flash. Then I did a little reading about the WhiteBalance manual controls and discovered that if I set it to tungsten it corrected the problem. Having said that, I still sometimes leave it in auto by accident and the picturescome out wrong butI managed to correct them with a little post processing. I don't know if there is any loss in adjusting them after the fact, but it seems to work.
