Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video White balance, part of Up and Running with the Nikon D600 and D610.
Not all light is the same.…Different light sources shine…with different color temperatures.…For example, if you're shooting…under fluorescent lights, these tend to run a bit cooler…while candle flames are considered warm.…The human eye can automatically compensate for these changes…but your camera needs a little bit of help.…The camera needs to be calibrated…based upon the lighting conditions.…To do this, you're going to change…the white balance on your camera.…Simply press the white balance button…and turn the main command dial…to the appropriate setting.…
Now, the default value of auto…adjusts the camera automatically to the scene.…If you're shooting under incandescents,…choose the incandescent option.…This will work best for traditional light bulbs,…and these run about 3,000 degrees Kelvin.…The fluorescent setting is well-suited…for all types of fluorescent lamps.…Your camera can adjust for different things…like sodium vapor lamps, warm white, white,…cool white, day white, daylight,…and even high temperature mercury vapor lamps.…
