So totally agree. I believe this process of white balancing in digital stills camera has its roots in video cameras having to find a white reference point in a given lighting condition, since decades ago. Using a white paper or grey chart is suffice. Considering having the same sensor type, the CCD, what is good enough for a broadcast video camera is also good enough for a digital stills camera. The rest is just a total overkill. Don't u think so?
