In order to understand how to use your camera's White Balance function, you have to first…understand the very important concept of color temperature.…So in this movie I am going to break it down quickly before I show you how to white balance.…So here's all you really need to know about color temperature to get started.…All light has its own particular color temperature.…Color temperature affects what color that light will look like on video.…So, different light sources, such as sunlight, fluorescent lights, and light from incandescent…bulbs all appear as different colors on camera because they all have different color temperatures.…
Daylight is generally bluish.…Fluorescent light bulbs, particularly older ones, tend to be greenish, and fire and candlelight are both very red.…The reason it doesn't look that way to our naked eye is that we have built-in auto white…balance, so most light appears white to our eyes.…However, video cameras see the light as it truly is.…So we have to always make sure we tell our camera how to make the light look white in…
