Fine-Tuning White Balance

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. White balance is
fine tuned using the White balance option in the shooting menu.

To display the menus, press the G button.

Highlight an option other than Preset

available with Preset manual white balance.

Use the multi selector to fine-tune white
balance.

White Balance Fine Tuning
The colors on the fine-tuning axes are relative, not absolute. For example, moving the
cursor to B (blue) when a "warm" setting such as J (incandescent) is selected will
make photographs slightly "colder" but will not actually make them blue.

Save changes and exit.
