do. So why would they balance their films or their cameras for 50
Ask them, Bret: I don't make cameras, I just use them like everyone else here.
My guess (and that is a pure guess!) is that they use a value that pro folks can easily relate to. So they use the old 3200K formula: after all, studio lighting uses that unless it's flash.
Fact is: 3200K lighting you can only get with photofloods or similar specialist lighting nowadays.
Try it. Set your dslr to 3200 (not the little indoor lighting icon, the actual temp) and take a few photos indoors at a restaurant or shopping. See if you get a natural balance or if you have to tweak the raw WB.
I've found for example that my D200 produces the best results indoors at my place when I pin it at around 4400K. I have low-voltage built-in spotlights in most ceilings. 6 per room, with dimmers.
