Fine Tuning White Balance

Fine Tuning White Balance

114

At settings other than 

K (Choose color temp.), white balance 

can be “fine-tuned” to compensate for variations in the color of 
the light source or to introduce a deliberate color cast into an 
image.

❚❚ The White Balance Menu

To fine-tune white balance from the shooting menus, select 
White balance and follow the steps below.

1

Display fine-tuning options.
Highlight a white balance option and 
press 

2 (if a sub-menu is displayed, 

select the desired option and press 

again to display fine-tuning options; 
for information on fine-tuning preset 
manual white balance, see page 129).

2

Fine tune white balance.
Use the multi selector to fine-tune 
white balance. White balance can be 
fine-tuned on the amber (A)–blue (B) 
axis in steps of 0.5 and the green (G)–
magenta (M) axis in steps of 0.25. The 
horizontal (amber-blue) axis 
corresponds to color temperature, 
while the vertical (green-magenta) 
axis has the similar effects to the corresponding color 
compensation (CC) filters. The horizontal axis is ruled in 
increments equivalent to about 5 mired, the vertical axis in 
increments of about 0.05 diffuse density units.
