I have taken the plunge and a D1X and associated goodies is on it's way to me. Should be here in a couple of days and I am really looking forward to my first digital experience.

I have been reading all I can on the D1X including Moose Petersens book. He seems fairly adamant that the Auto white balace setting is useless and shoots 95% of his shots at the Cloudy setting warmed up to -3. He also uses an 81A filter for all his shots.

What is the experience of fellow Nikonians on this subject? What are your favourite settings and how and when do you change them?

Any other setting or shooting advice would be appreciated
