I have routinely used a grey card to correct white balance in Capture NX 2. I do this either in the Camera Settings of the Develop section or, more often, with Levels and Curves in the Adjust section.

This has worked well.

Today for first time I applied the same techniques to D800E images and the result is incorrect, sometimes glaringly so. D700 images are still corrected properly and the system (OS X 10.6.8) is colour calibrated.

Has anyone else experienced this? Or someone willing to check!
