Setting the correct white balance in your digital SLR camera is important to ensure the objects that are white, are actually displayed white within the photograph.If your camera's automatic white balance setting doesn't get the color 'white' correct, it won't render the other colors correctly either.

Doesn't auto white balance fix this problem?

Well, not always!!! While it's true many improvements have been made in todays digital camera's, they still often get white balance settings wrong in certain lighting conditions. If you take your images in RAW format (highly recommended) then sure, go ahead and use auto white balance. If the camera gets it wrong, you can always change this setting later on in your RAW editor.

That's a whole new encyclopedia of thought. Did purchase a 8HD video card to support the extra "raw" usage, yet truly don't know what the heck i am doing to be quite honest. I don't like the "blue" cast i am seeing for my white, so i know you're right. More homework...now to find my RAW editor in the camera :0) Good to know i can change the settings will experiment today

dear Brenda your Fujifilm Finepix HS20EXR does support RAW format. Just go to the menu of the camera and find it, or just read the manual book for those settings. It can be real fun shooting in RAW, which can have some real advantages over the compressed JPEG! Your newly purchased camera also should come with some kind of RAW conversion software...play with that one !
