Is it possible to turn off the white balance in a Sony Cybershot DSC H5?


White Balance is not a setting that can ever be turned off, it is simply your camera's way of telling what is white so that it can process colors correctly. You can however adjust the white balance manually or simply set it to auto. Auto white balance usually works great and I would highly recommend using it. To adjust your white balance, here are the steps:

1) Press the menu button. scroll using your arrow pad to the WB option and then press the Control Button.

2) This should bring up your white balance selection screen. Keep in mind that if your camera is in full auto ( the dial is set to the camera icon ) you will not be able to adjust your white balance.

I hope this helps!

Tip

Get more out of S4000


ISO
Set ISO Setting to FIXED RANGE and set the range to 80-400. The camera produces noise at HIGH ISO setting.
NIGHT SHOTS
Get a small Tripod and you can take wonderful night time shots of city-scapes. Use a tripod and set the camera White Balance to Incandes. Make sure the FLASH is Off Set the Exposure Comp. to -2. Set the self timer and then frame and press the shutter and back away. Some exposures can be 1 second long so a tripod is not optional. Small plastic Joby ones work. If you are holding the camera during the shot it will move with you. A self timer is used to take the photo after you are not touching it.

When you use the flash set the White Balance to Flash (Unless you are outside on a sunny day. then use daylight)

I do NOT recommend using Auto Flash. Set the flash to OFF or turn it to SINGLE BOLT for fill.

When you want to photograph people outside in the sun set the White Balance to Daylight. On sunny days use the Fill Flash (Single Bolt) to fill faces better. Yes good photographers use flash in the direct sun. When cloudy are in shade turn flash off. If the subject has a bright background get close to them and have the flash on.

This camera makes red eye. In most cases when you are taking a photo of people in low light, when the flash supplies most of the light, you will get horrible red eye. You have to edit these later to remove the red eye.

Whenever I take a picture outside during the day, the pictures come out very bright. I haven't adjusted any settings on it. ideas?


You may have the mode dial set to something like "night pictures"...The ISO may be set too high...the white balance may be on something other than "Auto WB".

Dear sir,i purcahsed d90 cam but result is not good wat can i do ? wat can do setings get good result


The d90 takes excellent pics, but you need to understand the settings. White balance determines the accuracy of the color by setting what the camera sees as whit compared to what you do. Then you need to set the ISO, which is how sensitive it is to light. The higher the number, the more sensitive. In super bright situations you may need to go as low as 200, 800 in lowlight. 400 is a good average, 100 is rarely used. then your aperature value (a/f) this determines how much light the camera actually lets in, not to be confused with the sensitivity (ISO) which is specifically how sensitive the film is (not that you have any). Then is the shutter speed, which is how long the camera exposes the film when you hit the button-for fast moving objects, you want the shutter to open and close really fast so it doesn't blur;if it stays open too long it will capture the object in motion-if someone is running and you have a slow speed, the image could be the runner taking three steps as opposed to a still picture. To start.your setting when you take a pic, look at how much light you have. For indoors with no lights on during the day or outside cloudy, ISO 400. In at night with bright lights or outside sunny day, ISO 800. Then determine the speed of your object. A good standard for slow objects is 1/20-1/60. Set that, then set your aperature (f value) so the picture looks at the right brightness. If you adjust the aperature all the way and still need more or less light, adjust the shutter. Then cycle through your white balance options to make sure your color looks right and take a picture. If it comes out really grainy, your light settings were not right, you should pay attention to your ISO and aperature settings.

When i take a picture it looks red , I took in to wal-mart and they told me to send it to you all


thats very helpfull of them??? they dont have a clue do they?
unless your using a red filter to take photos with its this part playing up
all digital cameras and camcorders have whats called a built in
"white balance meter",,,and yours is not working right,,,
the white balence meter is to let the camera see what colour light its seeing in,,,, the colour temperature of sun light on a bright sunny day is 6600 begrees kelvin,,, in an electric light buld is about its about 3500 degrees kelvin or less? if you took a photo in sunlight the camera sees anything white in the photo "as white" and is happy to print it as white,, but in electric light buld it sees "white" as "red" this is due to the drop in colour temperature, your eyes can also see this (but your brain has its own white balance meter built in) what the white balance meter will do is change what it records or see's to take out the red and make it look white insted,,by changing the clolur temprature of the light its taking the photos in try this out,,,
take a white sheet of paper,, go out side on a sunny day and take a photo of it,,, if its not white and it looks a bit red its the white balence meter playing up in the camera,,,
yes i know,,, you hate me now? its as clear as mub "A"

Check the WHITE BALANCE settings and the COLOR EFFECTS settings (marked as W. BALANCE and COL. EFFECTS when MENU is pressed).

When you got to the MENU setting, press up or down arrow until you reached either selection, press the left arrow, and you'll see several options under the selected function. In WHITE BALANCE, there's an option whether you'll be shooting under sunny or cloudy skies, tungsten or flourescent lighting, and an option to select Auto or Manually set White Balance. This affects the over all color tone as it compensates the color correction depending on your shooting conditions. Fluorescent lighting for example exhibits blue spectrum, thus setting White Balance to FLUORESCENT will add warm or yellow tones to the photo. Tungsten lighting and sunny conditions exhibits yellow lighting, and setting to the White Balance on this mode will add cool or bluish tone to the picture.

Same with COLOR EFFECTS: settings include WARM, COOL, SEPIA or BLACK AND WHITE (gray scale).

Chances are, you have accidentally set the WHITE BALANCE or COLOR EFFECTS to any of these. To see if this is the problem, try shooting under SIMPLE MODE (Marked with a HEART icon at the rotary dial on top right of the DMC-FZ7). If the problem goes away, then it is with the WHITE BALANCE and the COLOR EFFECTS settings. Try setting the COLOR EFFECTS to "OFF", and the WHITE BALANCE to "AUTO".

If all else fails, then you got a problem with the image sensor of your Panasonic DMC-FZ7 Digicam

White balance


white balance usually refers to color not brightness. a good way to test your white balance though is to take a sheet of paper and zoom in on it. if it's white, than the white balance isn't the issue. it's most likely lens aperture, though I dont have a clue how to change that on that model camera. if nothing else you at least know what to look for now. sorry i can't be more help. good luck

Pictures have cyan color cast


Check your "white balance" (WB) setting.Try setting to "auto" and see if you get the same results shooting outdoors on a sunny day. If you do, the camera is in need of repair, if you do not, you need to buy a book on digital photography to supplement your manual.

Undo White Balance Sony F707


If you have Photoshop: Layer>New adjustment Layer>Levels Use the middle eyedropper tool and click on something in your photo that should be gray/dark gray. Or: Use the white eyedropper (far right eye dropper) and click on something in the photo that you know is (or should be) white. You can try the gray first, then the white.
