This is the most outstanding white balance problem solver on the market. I do all types of photography - professionally, especially in buildings with all types of bulbs [incandesant, fluorescent, halogen...] and this sets the WB extremely fast and perfectly every time.

I have a 1/2 horsepower electric motor 230 volt 3 speed w/ capacitor HVAC fan assembly. how do I wire it to power by color coded wires?


Keeping in mind that some motors may be different
The most common wire colors on a 3 speed motor are as follows:
Red- Low speed
Blue- Medium speed
Black- High speed
Brown capacitor wires ( usually two of them connect to the two capacitor terminals doesn't matter which wire to which terminal)
White - Neutral wire on 115 volt systems or the other 115 volt side of a 230 volt system ( note on a 230 volt motor this wire may not be white). Remember this is the most common wiring but different motors may have different wiring.
Hope this helps.

Where can i buy a 230 volt 120 watt wire in touch dimmer for a table lamp


Roger -

Are you sure you need a 230 volt dimmer in your table lamp? If this is being used in the US or Canada, it is more likely to be a 120 volt lamp. I think you will have trouble finding a 230 volt dimmer.

All the pictures come out with a pink tint! I have a E-500


Not much to go on here but I'll have a go at it. My first impression is that the camera "white balance" has been altered the E 500 has eight programed white balance settings. It also supports five picture modes one of which is Sepia which is a soft overcast of tan which could be mistaken for pink.
What may have happened is that camera white balance has been shifted to the florescent setting.
Here is a link that might help you reset your camera

About half way down the page you will see the presets for white balance titled colour and white balance.

Photographs pink


Take a blank white index card, hold it in front of the camera lens and take a photo. See if that helps set the White Balance to true white. If that does not work try setting the menu options to factory default. This sounds like a White Balance problem.

One touch white balance


i have the e-500 and can only register one at a time. once you set the white balance using the one touch button, it stays that way until you one touch again or custom reset. however it may be possible to save to 'my mode' 1 or 2 ... or even 'custom reset' 1 or 2. according to the manual on page 119, it saves your wb setting and most of the other changes you have made.

reset camera... soft reset. Mode Dial to P, press Menu, right arrow (AF button), to card setup, down to custom reset, right to custom reset, OK, up to YES, the OK

One touch white balance


white balance... you can go through the white balance menu and change the custom to whatever temperature you want... camera 1, wb, cwb, right to change temp. you can also change the red and green on the presets by pressing right at each preset temperature.

now if you are using one touch wb, then put the wb on one touch, then in camera ready hold in the one touch button and press the shutter button while pointing to white or gray card. this is stored as one touch until one touch is done again or the camera is reset. turning off camera will not reset the custom wb.

so to access your stored one touch put wb on one touch because this stores that last white balance done

White Balance


What is White Balance? The human eye captures white as white, red as red and blue as blue, regardless of whether you are outside under the sun or inside under incandescent lighting. Although this is something that we take for granted, the human eye actually adapts to correct the changes in color under different light sources. In reality, when light sources vary, colors caught as the reflection of those light sources also vary. For instance, films for cameras that use film are designed to capture the most appropriate coloring outside under the sun. Thus when you take pictures under incandescent or fluorescent lighting without using a flash, the colors in the resulting picture may seem strange. Digital camera and digital camcorders are equipped with a handy feature called "White Balance" that corrects the changes in color under different light sources, just like the human eye. One of the white balance settings, "Auto White Balance" (AWB) automatically adjusts to correct the changes in color under different light sources. White Balance and Coloring The White Balance feature on Canon digital cameras and camcorders is set to "Auto White Balance" at the time of purchase. If you prefer different coloring, if you want to adjust the coloring more in detail, or if you want to change the coloring on purpose, we recommend that you change the white balance setting.

Balance Function


This function is useful when you need more precise white balance than the Preset White Balance can provide. To set the optimum white balance for the shooting conditions, point the camera at a white object under the light source that you want to use, and press the OK button to set the white balance.
