White Balance Shift Bracket

Similar to Auto Exposure Bracketing, White Balance Shift/Bracket can produce from one to three color variations from a single exposure. It's an interesting feature because you don't need to shoot a bracket set, which means that if you routinely like your images a little warmer or cooler, or a little more yellow or green, you can set the screen where you wish. From the moment the feature is engaged, all of your images will exhibit the color change, regardless of which white balance mode you are in, including Custom White Balance.

To access this feature, open the Menu and select WB Shift/Bracket. Entering that screen will get you what is, essentially a color chart that you can navigate through to select either a Blue/Amber or Magenta/Green bias IG 4.33).

On the 30D, 5D and Mark III, you'll use either the Main Dial or the Quick Control Dial (the Rebel doesn't have a Quick Control Dial) to select the number of bracketed images. Use the Multi-Controller to position the bias where you want it IG 4.34).
