I use "Auto" White Balance most of the time but noticed pictures seemed to be a little cool (bluish) during normal daylight. After some experimenting with white balance fine tuning I am much happier using auto white balance with fine tune set at A2 (slightly warmer).

Reading Thom Hogan's D7000 Guide he states Nikon uses 5200K (kelvin) for outdoor lighting and that the accepted "daylight film" Kelvin is balanced at 5400K. He recommends a fine tune of A2 that is 5495K when shooting in "Direct Sunlight" for the best white balance. So, he has verified my original fine tune adjustment was correct to obtain a more accurate white balance.

Has anyone else experimented with the white balance fine tune on their D7000 and came to the same conclusion? If not what is your fine tune settings?


Addendum: Picture control is set to "Standard" with no modifications except for no sharpening.
