Using Live View to Set Your White Balance

There is a very cool new feature in some of the latest Nikon and Canon dSLRs that lets you use the LCD monitor on the back of the camera as a viewfinder, so you can compose and shoot your image using just it (just like a point-and-shoot camera). Now, it may not sound that appealing, but check this out: on some of these newer cameras, when you’re viewing the scene on your LCD, you can actually toggle through the different white balance settings and see right then and there how each white balance setting is going to look for that particular scene. This makes dialing in a great looking white balance absolutely simple—just scroll through the list, and when you see one that looks good, stop. Try it once, and you’ll use it again and again (especially easy when you’re on a tripod).
