View Full Version : White balance presets
2007 July 30th, 22:51
I really love the white balance presets on the HV20. The sunset mode works beautifully as well as the tungsten and others. I find myself getting a look I like more from them a lot of the times than actually white balancing. I know all can be corrected easily in post, so white balancing pre-post isn't as crucial as it use to be though. What do you think of the presets?

What exactly is Tungsten? i mean, what's it best used for?

It's a type of light. I find this setting works many places indoors where tungsten is located.
