Mark, I'm interested to know what white balance modes you're using on your Z1 when you shoot macro with lights. Do you use a preset or do you manual white balance on something illuminated by your lights? Also wondering what WB setting you're using for wider stuff without lights.

Hi Nick
WB using the lights. I had to do that a lot seeing as I would use different levels of directness with the lights. More light angle than other subjects meant a higher degree of illumination in some scenarios. For most of the wide angle stuff with a color correcting filter I set to default outside WB and correct in post. Personally I don't see any benefit below 8m to use manual WB.
