Greetings from Windsor Canada.

I just purchased the K200d. I am using this camera for a very specific task: Shooting plants that are grown with High Intensity Discharge bulbs. The lights are very bright and the bulbs that are used for the flowering cycle are High Pressure Sodium, that ugly orange/yellow light that most cities use for street lighting. I imagine my biggest challenge will be taking good looking pictures in HPS lighting and balancing the colours so that they don't look like rubbish.

Any help with this task, or a point to the right thread will be greatly appreciated.

You'll want to manually adjust/set the WB and use a higher shutter speed. That question should go in the photohraphy forum, though.
