White Balance

Unless you adjust what is called the white balance on your camcorder you may end up with very orange or very blue pictures. Different sources of light produce light of different color temperatures that the white balance can adjust to accommodate and ensure that the colors in your pictures stay as real to the original as possible. Artificial lighting, such as normal light-bulbs used in the home, will produce an orange tinge. Daylight is more blue.
