    Hi

    How do I fit the WB on my EOS 20D to match my tungsten lights?
    New firmware?

    That is probably a question best asked on one of the digital websites...

    Now watch out for the fall out comming your way, the chances of you getting a real answer here are pretty slim.

    hey EOS it is a photo site but not a digital photo site Apug stands for Analog (as opposed to Digital) Photographers Users Group. If you had read the main home page you would know that.

    It is indeed a photo sight, with a focus on analog photography, digital is a dirty word around here, but if you look on the web I am sure you will be able to find the information you require, or you might do something novel .....read your manual, the information is there.

    If racial quotas are needed as a temporary measure to make up for past injustices, I can understand that, but I thought we decided to keep politics off the forum.

    Since the question is asked in the "Lighting" section of APUG, the correct answer must be that you can

    A: Use a colour-correction filter on the lens,
    B: use coulour-correcting gels on the lights, or
    C: Rip out the sensor in your camera and replace it with a tungsten-balanced one.

    Many of the members here will prefer that you do C above.

    What you're looking for is the custom white balance feature on the EOS. I don't have an EOS, but this what I am presuming. On the D1X, I know it's a different brand, once I set my custom white balance and 'lock' it in, I can use over and over again. Although the D1X already has a 'tungsten' WB setting. Maybe the EOS has one too. Ask a Canon user or check out some Canon user group sites.

    Regards, Art.

    WELL. I guess we straightened him out.



    I think perhaps the correct response is

    1, This is an analog site and we don't discuss digital here, sorry.

    2, Piss off you little shot nose digital bastard.


    I hope we'd go with 1.

    Obviously a new user ID created for the express purpose of stirring up crap. Not even worthy of notice, let alone wailing and gnashing of teeth.

    LMAO! And someone else accused me of belittling (sp?) :D I noticed he had only 3 posts and thought, maybe he only 'stumbled' into APUG. Maybe not. I'd vote for 2 then.

    I was wondering how long it would take an infantile digitoid to come here and try to do this.....a little more than two years, not bad IMO.

    EOS. read the fu*king manual!

    I think most people these days have access to multiple connections to the internet - through work, school, family, and friends - places we regularly visit and where it wouldn't be an inconvenience to log on the internet.

    If he ever does post again, I guess I'll finally get to see how the ignore button works.
