I like to take a custom white balance rather than use the presets.

I have been using a BRNO white balance lens cap to achieve spot on white balancing in my Canon 40D. When I switched over to Nikon I purchased the D700 and began learning about my camera. I love the BRNO cap, at least w/ my Canon. When I used it w/ the Canon it always delivered accurate results.

But now on my D700 I am struggling. Using it to WB outdoors has been fine, but indoors and most noticeably under fluorescent lights it is failing miserably. I did a shoot yesterday at a studio which had two different rooms, one w/ fluorescent and one w/ tungsten and both WB came out warm, "yellow/orange". I also did a candid shoot prior to this in a local bar and then again a restaurant w/ fluorescent lighting and this is where I became aware of the issue.

I ended up using the presets in the camera,
Wondering if anyone here has specific knowledge and can advise?

thanks,

doug
