Wonder what that relates to in numerical form?
It looks like the settings for different types of light, Tungsten being the odd looking one I would assume its a Tungsten light source of some sort.. I dont know if you could give a number to Daylight...

Daylight is usually 5500K
Cloudy 6500K
Tungsten 2850K
Fluorescent 3800K
Flash 5500K

Those are the values that Photoshop's Raw Converter assigns to the presets, the cameras actual presets are probably the same or very close.

The sun at noon is about 5500K

Remember these are presets and not necessarily accurate for the actual color temperture of the light your shooting in, the only way to be sure your using an accurate white balance is to take a custom white balance each time you shoot. Auto and the presets are usually close enough for most people. If you shoot in raw you can always change the WB during conversion.

Thanks Kevin...that was what I was talking about. The last time I did anything regarding lighting was nighttime for bulbs and the term "candle power" was tossed around then.

Im guessing your talking about the conversion from RAW format its on your computer like in a Photoshop type program right?

I have a question.. how is it they have a mail in rebate and the other retailers are not talking about one? I would assume that would most likely be a factory rebate if it was a mail in one...
