Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video White balance presets, part of Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) Essential Training.
Here on the back of the camera, I can see that I'm set for Auto White Balance.…As we've discussed, there will be times when Auto White Balance is not your best choice,…if you're shooting in shade or on a cloudy day, you may find that Auto White…Balance is yielding images that are a little too cool, a little blue where you…may really notice that as flesh tones.…So I want to change my White Balance.…I've got this button here WB.…If I press that, I get a White Balance menu full of presets and basically, each…one of these little icons represents a different type of light.…I can scroll through them with either the wheel or my buttons back here.…
And it clues me in as to what this is.…So the big sun icon is Daylight.…I've got Shade, Cloudy, Tungsten,…these are the types of lights you find around the house, White Fluorescent Light.…I have got my Flash, and then I have something called Manual.…Right underneath that, there is also a temperature.…This is saying that this camera's daylight White Balance preset is set for light…
