Auto White BalanceFortunately, most digital cameras contain a variety of preset white balances, so you do not have to deal with color temperature and green-magenta shift during the critical shot. Commonly used symbols for each of these are listed to the left.The first three white balances allow for a range of color temperatures.Auto white balanceis available in all digital cameras and uses a best guess algorithm within a limited range-- usually between 3000/4000 K and 7000 K.Custom white balanceallows you to take a picture of a known gray reference under the same lighting, and then set that as the white balance for future photos. With "Kelvin" you can set the color temperature over a broad range.The remaining six white balances are listed in order of increasing color temperature, however many compact cameras do not include a shade white balance. Some cameras also include a "Fluorescent H" setting, which is designed to work in newer daylight-calibrated fluorescents.CustomKelvinTungstenFluorescentDaylightFlashCloudyShade
