    Default White balance

    when setting custom white balance using a piece of white paper, will there be any diff whether u take the setting in tele, or wide angle?

    AFAIK, no difference. But tele is better, since you want to shoot all in frame with white paper for white balance.

    You need to fill the whole frame with the white paper, so tele will be easier, and the surface need not to be in focus, as the camera need to know the tonal of the surface, not the texture.

    Hope this helps.
