Cameras bags are an object of desire for every photographer. While some photographers go for the more classy and stealthy look, others prefer just to keep their equipment the most secure that they possibly can, in the largest bag they can get their hands on.

In the film days we used color-correction (CC) filters to battle them and, in the digital age, most choose to set their cameras to auto-white-balance (AWB), in effect telling the camera to detect and neutralize color casts automatically. After all, neutral whites and lack of color casts are desirable and natural, right? Wrong!
