Video Camera Tip 2

Have you thought lately that the colors in your videos are not what they were when you first bought the camera? Well you are probably right if you have not been white balancing your camera.
Most manufactures recommend you white balance prior to every use. You might be saying to yourself that this sounds really hard to do and I am not sure if I can do it, well let me help you through this process.
First you get out a plain white piece of paper and hold in front of the cameras lens. Next you need to find the switch, button, or in you menu that allows you to go into white balance mode. This process will only take a few seconds, after this process is completed you will notice a substantial change in the quality of the colors in your videos.
But if you have a newer more modern camera then the manufactures have made it much easier for you because they have an auto white balance feature built into the camera. Although they still have a manual white balance mode and I would recommend using every three or four uses to ensure the best and brightest videos. Now get out there and film like a professional!

  1. How about if my camera just doesn't seem like it's as sharp or clear when it takes pictures? Can it lose it's "pixelization" after so long? The pictures are blurry and they used to be so "crisp"!
