Thread: Help on setting Custom White Balance

    Default Help on setting Custom White Balance

    Any dslr expert advise how you usually adjust the white balance? Also explain how white balance works? When should you set it to get a neutral colour in artificial lighting (the room is lit by an orange source, the object you want its natural colour), when and how should you set to get the artificial colour (ie the room is lit by an orange light source, the object you want to take looks orange)?

    In setting custom white balance, can I just bring a piece of A4 white paper and point at it to set? Or is it better to buy and use a Kodak 18% gray card? I know there are alternatives out there like the expodisc but I'm too poor and lazy :P

    Double posting. Didn't you just post another similar thread in the Canon section?

    I thought it's better to post in Canon since my camera is 450D... Can anyone advise?
