    Default Color temperature for Yongnuo flashes

    Hi guys,

    have a question to bring up for discussion. in the past i used to use original flashes, but have since used yongnuo flashes since they are much more affordable and works pretty okay.

    just have a question on the color temperature as i realize for my pics after using flash on them, the color seems to be really too cool. do u guys experience the same thing? wonder if anyone could give some advice on this as it what to set the color temperature at?

    If the WB turns out too cool, why not just adjust the WB in your camera settings?

    unless you're trying to match the flash colour to the room (ambient) colour temperature...
    Exploring! :)

    Flash (generally rated at 5500k) and camera white balance (ambient, so it depends which lighting condition) is at different colour temperature, so you need a colour gel to place on the flash to correct to similar lighting.

    Yongnuo's are bit cool, though they're rated at 5600k but definitely different quality of lighting parts are used. You likely need colour correction gel like 1/4 or 1/2 CTO (depends on types of lighting) to warm the flash colour.
