comment When should I use manual white balance settings?
@Robert I shoot raw so don't worry about whitebalance 'till post (where I set it by eye) but I also have the camera record small JPEGs with auto-white balance so I see how far wrong the camera gets it... I have several Canon DSLRs and they're all as bad as each another.

@ysap you could also say that setting your camera to "daylight" white balance works for a lot of everyday shooting with good results, that doesn't mean that the daylight setting provided effective auto whitebalance!

@ysap I've revised my answer, to be honest my experience has always been of AWB being abysmal, and I've seen enough badly whitebalanced shots to suggest this isn't an exception. I accept there may be some cameras that do it well but essentially it's an underconstrained problem (meaning it lacks a unique solution so guesswork is required).

comment Camera producing blurred images under average lighting conditions
The first one is clearly motion blurred (though it may have been out of focus as well)

comment Camera producing blurred images under average lighting conditions
seconded, one's clearly displaying camera shake and the other is with flash, as the lighting colour and direction are totally inconsistent!

comment What is a good wide-angle prime lens for Nikon DX (APS-C) format?
The 14-24 is a stellar lens, the envy of a lot of Canon shooters (like the 85 f/1.2L is for Nikon shooters and the 24 f/1.4 until Nikon released their version).

Sorry can't see how this is related to still photography
