Manual white balance

How does one do manual white balance on a 10D? I'm sure I can find the answer in the owner's manual but I procrastinated and didn't make time for this. Thank you.

Re: Manual white balance

From Page 52, Canon EOS 10D instruction manual --- 1) Shoot a white object. * The white object should fill the entire partial metering circle. * Set any white balance setting. (see p.50) * Shoot the white object so that a standard exposure is obtained. If it is underexposed or overexposed, a correct white balance setting might not be obtained. --- 2) On the menu, select [Custom WB]. * Press the Menu button. * Turn the thumbwheel to select [Custom WB], then press Set. --- 3) Select an image. * Turn the thumbwheel to select the image captured in step 1, then press Set. - The image's white balance data will be imported. * After the setting is completed, the menu will reappear. * To exit the menu and turn off the LCD monitor, press the Menu button. --- 4) Press the AF-WB button. 5) Select the ?custom white balance?. * Turn the thumbwheel to select the custom WB symbol. Notes: - For the standard white object, a sheet of plain, white paper is recommended. - You can store on the CF card the images of the standard white object captured under various lighting. Then while shooting, you can select one of these images with the [Custom WB] menu command to easily set the white balance best suited for the current lighting condition.

Re: Manual white balance

Click the AF-WB button and then with the wheel in the back of the camera select either K or any of the other settings. If set to K then you must go to your Menu (click menu button on back) then go to Color temp. and select your Kelvin tempature. Hope that helps....

I'm using my Canon 350D to shoot jewellery in a pop up "cube" and it gives a very yellow light. Is there any way to adjust the 350D for a bright white light? Many thanks Anthony


Try the various white balance settings until you find the one you're looking for. If you don't find one in the presets, you can set a manual white balance using a white sheet of paper...check your owner's manual for instructions.

Colour balance for majority of photo is good but sky or white goes to pink. Colour balance is obviously not the problem. Help?


How about White Balance? Taking a photo outdoors, for example, white your WB is set on "Fluorescent Light" will turn your images bluish. To set WB, see the owners manual.

Setting custom white-balance


F1 or 4 are white balance memories, rather than buttons to set the WB.
Menu > Custom WB > Right Arrow > Select F1 or F4 > 
Then put your piece of white card in front of the lense and hit the shutter button. Make sure you haev enough light though !

Magenta cast


I guess it could be several things; perhaps the color temperature of your lights is the culprit. At any rate, it shouldn't be too difficult to correct - here are two suggestions: 1) Shoot in RAW mode so that you can fine-tune color balance after the fact and don't have to get it right in-camera. 2) Shoot a black/white/grey card in the same lighting as your subject. (all three "colors" on the same card) You can then use the eyedropper tool in either curves or levels to set the black and white points, and the grey eyedropper tool (when clicked on the grey in your shot) should get rid of any color cast, magenta or otherwise. Good luck!
