You are correct, I've never really looked at the pro setups as they don't interest me, and have unfairly lumped pro and semipro together. Thanks for the clarification.

As for the WB, I like fiddling with things, but have come to realize messing with Kelvins is a waste of time. Also, I don't use my camera to make money, I use my camera as a means for visual expression and exploration, being on the pure artistic side of thing makes me want to play with all the fun stuff more — not saying you don't photograph with those emotions, I'm simply saying that i like to see what things do, fail fast and try again.
And I find myself changing settings because when I go on a photo shoot, I am moving from inside of a building/structure to outside of a building/structure. I tend to immediately move from high sun to no windows (at the drastic end of things). Or ask, what will this picture look like when it's grainy, maybe that will be interesting.
As for Quality, If I'm shooting everyday family pictures, but then happen upon something that sparks my artistic eye, it's nice to swap from a smaller file size to a larger, simple modulation for easier post processing.

I agree. and my assumption is that the semi-pro setup would alleviate certain issues. Thanks!
