Custom White Balance

Hi all - wondering if you can help please. Been pottering about with custom white balance for the first time, on my 20D. Set it up fine and got some decent indoor shots.
My question is will the data I imported remain as the default for all future shots?
Thanks for your help

Re: Custom White Balance

Only if you shoot them with custom white balance set on the camera. In all other white balance modes they will be set with the setting of that mode. If you are asking will the camera remember your manually set white balance, it will, until you change it yourself.

Re: Custom White Balance

Just in case it helps, I did a video tutorial on using custom white balance. It is somewhere in the Tutorials section but I am posting it here to save you searching.

Hope it helps,
Rob

Re: Custom White Balance

Hey Rob?... can I remind you of an Inuit saying there?...
"Dont eat no Yellow snow"...........

I am keeping that tutorial as its a good reminder of things....
I set mine by taking a plain sheet of white paper to manually "Set" what is white, but your video will help me explain it to someone who hasnt got it yet....
