There has to be something I'm missing about using an existing picture for white balance. Case in point, making a red hallway with a blue filter. According to the instructions, you hold the blue filter over the lens and shoot. That gives a blue cast to the image.

Then use that shot to set the custom WB - which on the D7K seems to mean assigning the blue shot to WB memory; I used D1.

When I tap the WB button it shows D1 selected.

Now shoot with the blue gel on the SB600 flash in TTL. The frame should be red.

But it's still BLUE. What's up with that?
