White Balance
– Keeping Colors True
The color of light reflected from an object varies with the color of 
the light source. The human brain is able to adapt to changes in 
the color of the light source, with the result that white objects 
appear white whether seen in the shade, direct sunlight, or under 
incandescent lighting. Unlike the film used in film cameras, digital 
cameras can mimic this adjustment by processing images 
according to the color of the light source. This is known as “white 
balance.” This chapter covers white balance settings.
