Setting the color balance
17.1 White balance
If you are using a Sony HDW camera in either its native Sony form or the Panavized version, there are three positions for the switch on the side of the camera that determine which form and setting of white balance you are using. Most professional High Definition (HD) cameras will have similar controls so I will describe those on the Sony here. The positions are labelled Preset, A and B.
