Re: White Balance FD71
It's in the manual for sure. There are a couple of preset WB settings in the camera. You can access these by pressing the WB button on the lens, it will change the WB setting from one to another for every press. You can also do custom WB with one push botton.

White balance is the camera looking at the whitest white and the blackest black and aligns all the other colors between the two digitally. when you adjust the white balance you create end points for how light the lightest or darkest point in your photo can be collected on your camera.
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.
Light from ordinary light bulbs has a strong yellow-orange cast, which our eyes tend to adjust for without thought. Check the white balance setting on your camera. This is to adjust the camera for the color of the light, to try to make white come out white, hence the name "white balance." Set the white balance to incandescent (light-bulb icon) for indoor shooting under light bulbs, or to automatic to let the camera take its best attempt.
Try experimenting with the white balance setting. Taking pictures in bright sunlight with the incandescent setting will give your pictures a very blue cast, making things look a little colder. There are other settings, such as flourescent.
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.
Are you saying that you're using a white background but it doesn't appear white in the pictures? If so, then yes, you need to change the white balance to match the light. Probably "tungsten" but you could try different settings and pick the one you like best or you could use a white piece of paper and set a manual white balance.
When did you get this message? It seems like you have set the White Balance of the camera wrong. Set it to Auto White Balance to eliminate this problem. Use Daylight White Balance when shooting in bright daylight so as to eliminate any color cast in the image.
It sounds like a White Balancing problem. I'd guess if it's set on Auto WB, then
you'll need to do it manually. Some digital cameras tend to produce that blue
tint when left to white balance themselves.
If you don't understand completely let us
know the exact model of the camera and I'm sure somebody can talk you through it!
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.
There are two white balance adjustments in the Picture Menu. Check the user's manual and see which is best for you.
Remember if you have "All Reset" set to Yes (Setup Menu). The white balance will reset to Auto each time you turn-on the camera.

Just like Sony and the memory stick.
