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. 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.

I'm new to DSLRs and to Photograhy as a serious hobby.
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.
