Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
Hi i just recently purchased the Canon 400D and i dont really understand all the camera terms ie white balance ect. So i was wondering if you could define and explain camera terms for me? thanks. Megz
Gosh Megz, That's prolly more than anyone wants to type. Go to the Library or a book store. I'll try to explain white balance for you. Inside the camera is a program that evaluates the light during exposure. It tries to determine what is white and adjust the other colors in the photos accordingly by adjusting tint and temperature. Your eyes and brain do this for you. If you have a tripod try taking a photo in automatic mode and write down what the shutter speed and f stop was for that photo. Adjust your camera to those settings manually and take the same photo over. This way you will get a consistent photo to look at. Then change your color balance to different settings like daylight, cloudy, shade, tungsten (which is incandescent lighting) and fluorescent and view the difference in colors after you download to your image viewer on your computer. You'll think you went back to the late 60's.
