Digital Camera Dilema

The camera I use (sony dv w/ photo option) has an automatic light meter & white
balance. (I got it on ebay) It takes beter pictures in less than full light. Full
light is fine but the colors are stark without the white balance, with it, one
needs a filter which takes time to attach, meanwhile the shot flies away.
My solution is to catch the buggers and put them in a refrigerator till they're
managable, then use a pre- selected location where I have time to set up right.
