I was wondering, when using the Custom White Balance function on the G10 do I need to carry a white card (or one of those folding reflectors) from which to take a reading or can I just point at anything white - for example, a wall or anything white that will fill the frame?

Thanks, Glyn.

(we do get them occasionally here in the UK) :)

Point it at anything that's supposed to be your favorite "white".
Trail and error is your friend... ;)
