I'm a fan of leaving the camera in reset and fixin it in post.
I had a DP actually freakin white balance in the middle of an interview. Great.. Now I had to not only color correct a blue shot... I had to MATCH it to the other stuff.
Use your zebras but outside of that, I like to add all filters and color creation (cuz it aint just correction anymore) in post.
I like to have the option anyway.

I guess I always felt the same way, but just about everything I bring in seems a little washed out so I end up having to tweek.
