Hi,

Since I'm no educated photographer I really do not know much about K or better say colour warmth....

How does changing of these values influance on color on camera(in my case canon 350d).

My camera has these color modes:

tungsten

florescent

daylight

shade

flash

cloudy

Can someone tell me what is the K number of each WB mode. Can I find it in camera....

What is it mean to a color when I have lower numbers like 3200K or higher 7000K.

Thanks for understanding.

Zak

FYI: http://www.aeimages.com/learn/color-correction.html

For example you'll set your camera to 3200K to use with studio lights
... or set the camera to 7000K for shooting in overcast day outdoor

-> Their actual names (Studio flood vs cloudy) make it easier to remember than the Kelvin temperature (3200K vs 7000K) scale...
