Fuji time-lapses: White balance


White balance

Same as exposure, your camera may change white balance between shots which is annoying in a time-lapse. Set it manually.


The above overnight time-lapses were shot in auto white balance (fine/daylight) and incandescent. The below examples are stills from the same moment (left is fine/daylight, right is incandescent). Auto/Daylight gave everything a yellow-orange cast. Incandescent mostly turned the light pollution mostly neutral and turned the night sky blue.


Daylight white balance gives you cool blues and warm yellows and oranges. On my Fuji’s, auto white balance tended to be a little more warm in the blues (but pleasant) thus giving you an overall warm cast. It depends on what you want. (The above examples were auto white balance.)

(sunrise examples?)
