Something new to me...
How you set the speed light manually to get more accurate white balance? by adding CC filters on the flash?

Did you mount on your speedlight and shoot without turning on the speedlight or your the batt in your speedlight is out of juice.

The only time my WB went off is when i mount my speedlight on my cam and did not turn it on. ;p

don't share any of your experiences. i've used my d70 with the old sb80 and new sb800 speedlights, no problems with auto wb (mine is set to auto -1).

putting a switched-off flash on my cam never affects the wb!!!

leaving my D70 white balance in "Auto" and in "Flash" makes quite a bit of difference especially the skin tone. :cry:

2 different settings that is why. Even in Flash setting, the difference in Flash power will also give you a different skin tone.

flash wb is for situations where flash is the dominant light source, e.g. studio shooting. if flash is mixed with other lighting or just fill-flash, i think auto is better. (actually i ignore the flash wb setting since auto works just fine)
