    Hi, I'm new here. My name is Sheri from the US. My other camera a Canon G5 has a tungsten setting, and that is the setting that best works for my doll photography. Now I just got this Nikon 8800 and it seems to have everything BUT tungsten. What would be equal to tungsten in "nikon talk" ?

    exactly.

    From looking up the manual online it looks as if its the option between "Daylight" and "Fluorescent" marked by a lightbulb.

    Hmmm I tried it, and I am still getting a yellow cast to everything. Nothing like the Canon, shoot!
