How Improper WB Hurts DR

We were aware that shooting with the incorrect white balance reduces dynamic range, but we never understood why this is so – until now. For those thinking that this doesn’t apply to raw video, we highly recommend checking out the heated exchange in the comments section of Alister Chapman’s blog post on the subject.

  1. Thanks for this very interesting article Jon.
    What I keep in mind in that, it’s better to directly choose the right ISO and correct WB directly in camera than in POST, Raw or not, Red Raw or not, etc.
    Also, interesting to make the difference between 12 bits and 16 bits raw.
