Well the sun is a yellow colour but the light coming from it is not 'yellow'.
D65 is not sunlight either, it is a value for video white settled on by who knows who and when.
It is readily accepted that D65 is on the warmer side of white balance on devices and it is pretty obvious it is not the same as real things in real daylight. Also no two devices will have the same D65 either.
no doubt someone will now go off and find some data regarding sunlight etc etc to try to 'prove me wrong' but all I have ever been talking about is my perception being the only one I am interested in. So it would be folly.
I haven't said anything is wrong with D65 per sae, or I am right, I merely said I will tweak even a calibrated device until things look more real to me.
I love the way people only read half the posts and then try to rubbish others personal opinions and preferences.
I don't think I have even questioned the actual science behind it, I just said that it didn't necessarily fit with mine or many others perception. Ultimately, our personal perception is all we can use to judge things by.
