Topic: How to measure and set white balance on 60D (Read 2462 times)
white balance can be fully set in post production when shooting RAW, whereas it's "burned in" when shooting jpg.
Then again, I have never had any problems changing white balance in post with jpg files either. Aperture has the same sliders for RAW and jpg and they work the same way.

thanks in advance
If all else fails you could try reading the user manual.
I will say, even shooting in RAW, I'd have a few shots that were nearly impossible to correct in post becaue the colors were so far off. They all came from the awful fluorescent lights they have in schools, but, it's definitely advisable to at least use one of the presets to get close to the correct WB for a scene. If you're coming up with Kelvin values in the 3-4000 range on a scene that needs 7000, it's not as easy to correct
You're (mostly) correct. The small caveat is that if you're shooting in the wrong white balance mode for RAW, it means that you MUST go back and change it in post-production.
