What is Black Level, Black Reference or Black Balance?

This is the setting that sets up the base level of the camera's sensor.

Ideally, this should be set just prior to capturing images when the camera has been powered up for a while. All electronic components in a camera change tolerances slightly with temperature and if the black level is not set then the image grey levels may be incorrect.
