Can one measure colour temperature with the Nikon D3?

    Is it possible to get a numerical value for the colour temperature on a
    D3? I know it's possible to photograph a gray card and use that to get
    the colour temperature stored in d-0, but can one see what that value is
    - i.e. how many Kelvin?

    If it is, please share the secret.

    Strange we both wanted to find it though. I can't believe it would be
    anything but trivual to implement when a new firmware release is made. I
    might ask Nikon if they have any plans for it.

    You mean to tell me that my Spot Meter in my D3 is useless when shooting
    RAW? I haven't found that to be the case at all...

    It is true that Nikon's auto WB on the D200 & D700 is a lot better than
    Photoshop CS1's auto WB in my experience.
