Question about Gray cards / White Balance setting.

If I use a Gray card to set my white balance in a room with, for the sake of example, 3 tungsten lamps, a normal indoor living room area, how long does this setting stay applied in my camera? Until the power is switched off or even if I turn off and then a week later shoot outside is this setting still applied?

Once you set your camera to custom WB, it'll stay there, just as if you dialed it to sunlight or cloudy.

Yes.

Once you tell your camera to do something, it will keep doing it until you tell it to do something else.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "peace of mind", NOT "piece of mind".

I hear Rosie has been looking for a job. Not sure how you get a hold of George, though. :)
