How do Mirrorless Cameras Handle MIXED LIGHTING Conditions?

Industrial and commercial interior locations are one of the places I like to shoot in a lot! I am constantly mixing flash with roomlight, LED with daylight, Fluorescent with LED and CFL… This is actually one of the primary reasons I moved from the DSLR to a mirrorless camera system. In this video reply to a viewers email question thru the “ASK WILL” section of, I tell it like it is.

    I remember the first time you told me to trust you and try auto white balance, Will. I was of the mindset (to borrow a phrase) that “auto means you auto not use it”.

    But I tried it and I became a believer. My camera still has a bit of an issue with auto white balance and “traditional” fluorescent lights (tubes) but it’s pretty minor and easy enough to fix in post. Plus, the only time I shoot under those is when I am out on location inside a building.

    But LED lights, incandescent bulbs, sunshine, shade or even a mixture and the AWB on the new cameras is vastly superior to what it was just a few years ago.
