Workaround for flash WB issue on DS.


I don't know if anybody knows this, but last night I found out that setting the DS to "Auto Pict" mode will also set the camera to AWB, which works very well with the flash. It also sets the AF to AF-S, and sets JPG processing to defaults (bright mode etc...) just keep these in mind, and keep shooting manual modes with whatever settings you want. Then, when you want to take some flash photo snapshots, just set it to "Auto Pict" instead if you were planning on using P mode for example.

How about it?

It would allow you to "bounce" back and forth between differnt modes quickly. I will try it out.
