I love it, just need a better lens...How do set the white balanceall my nightshots are yellow?
did they give you a manual, you should probably check there.
Very well said Blair!
buy an 18% grey card, take a photo of it under whatever lighting you are using, set that image as your custom white balance photo, set white balance to Custom (looks like a flower)
Thanks derrict, gonna have to read the manual to figure out how to set it but thank
Shoot everything in raw and fix it later.
Fuck setting white balance.
but make sure you have additional external hard drives / dvd space
Get the 50mm 1.8 lens for a cheap, good quality lens. I returned my xti with kit lens, and bought the body only + the prime. It is so much more a better lens: sharper pics, and ability for faster shutter speeds. It's just that there's no zoom, so only buy it if you're gonna be shooting things where you can walk closer/farther to "manually zoom".
pick up some coffee filters from your grocer, put it on MF, put it up to the lens and take a photo.
Open your menu and tell it to use custom white balance and select that as the photo.
Don't buy recycled filters.
I'm gonna try thatccausenuttin elsehas seemed to work,Thanks
agreed - RTFM
