I recommend fix it using PRE. So that it is consistent through out all scenes, if you know is out, you can apply consistent white balance changes across all the pictures. This is on assumption that you are taking images on the same location. If you are running around between different lighting locations like on wedding, yup AUTO works.

Eh... I wouldn't reccomend PRE for outdoors. Light conditions keep shifting and even in the same spot, the WB difference for slight cloud cover and sunny conditions is really wide.

I'd only use PRE for IR or mebbe studio work where I can control the lights totally.
