Proper White Balance for DSLR Video

AdoramaTV presents DSLR | Video Tips with Richard Harrington. In this episode, Rich shares techniques on how to manually calibrate your DSLR camera for proper white balance. Then, follow along as he gives you a quick look at how to use a 3-way color corrector tool to white balance in post-production.

Sometimes, using the auto white balance (AWB) option can become problematic. If there is a change in lighting over time, such as a cloud moving in front of the sun, it can cause the AWB to re-adjust during your shot. To avoid this, try using the white balance pre-sets and calibration tools to customize your shooting situation.
