White Balance

The color of the light reflected from an object varies
with the color of the light source. The human brain is
able to adapt to such changes in color, with the result
that we see white objects as white, regardless of
whether they are in the shade, direct sunlight, or under
incandescent lighting. Digital cameras can mimic this
adjustment by processing information from the cam-
era's image sensor (CCD) according to the color of the
light source. This process is known as a "white balance
adjustment."
• If you cannot achieve the desired white balance with Auto (M) or you want to
lock the white balance for a specific light source or shooting conditions,
choose a setting other than Auto (M).
• When the white balance setting is changed, the new setting is reflected in the
picture in the monitor.
