DPChallenge. Understanding White Balance. White balance (WB) is the process of removing unrealistic color casts, so that objects which appear white in person are rendered white in your photo.

Understanding White Balance

Proper camera white balance has to take into account the "color temperature" of a light source, which refers to the relative warmth or coolness of white light. Our eyes are very good at judging what is white under different light sources, but digital cameras often have great difficulty with auto white balance (AWB) — and can create unsightly blue, orange, or even green color casts. Understanding digital white balance can help you avoid these color casts, thereby improving your photos under a wider range of lighting conditions. Color Cast Daylight White Balance Color temperature describes the spectrum of light which is radiated from a "blackbody" with that surface temperature. Relative intensity has been normalized for each temperature (in Kelvins).

The first three white balances allow for a range of color temperatures. Automatic White Balance. EOS Rebel T3i with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Kit - Canon Canada Inc. Features 18.0 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor and DIGIC 4 Image Processor for high image quality and speed.

I have been an avid nature photographer since I was 10 years old.

The New DSLR Camera from Nikon

So far I am really impressed. I have had this Nikon for 6 months, but I only started using it recently. I was always a fan of another brand but after using the Nikon 3100 for a while I decided to upgrade and I have now become a dedicated Nikon photographer. I have 3 bridge cameras of various makes and an Interchangeable lens camera as well Nothing beats Nikon. I love the way the 5100 handles. The difference between Nikon and that other very popular brand is the lens.

Canon vs Nikon Digital SLR Cameras. Canon vs Nikon - which one is right for me? It's a common question when consumers start to compare digital SLR cameras. These two companies were the first to make the leap from film to digital, and their initial presence in the market make them the dominant players. Today Canon and Nikon constantly battle for the top spot in the SLR market, while Pentax and Sony duke it out for a position in third. If you pay attention to digital SLR press releases, you'll quickly see a pattern: when either Canon or Nikon announce a new camera designed to capture some niche aspect of the market, the opposing company also announces a camera that is competitive. This page will help you get a handle on the current state of Canon vs Nikon digital SLR cameras, with a focus on consumer SLRs, not those made for professionals. Beginner Cameras Let's begin with an introduction to the cameras that get a lot of attention: those geared toward beginning digital SLR photographers.
