If any of the above error messages is displayed,
retry the white balance adjustment. If the error
message occurs again, an internal check is
necessary.

the Maintenance Manual.
If you have no time to adjust the white
balance
Set the WHITE BAL switch to PRST.
This makes it possible to automatically set the
white balance to 5600K (factory default value) by
pressing the COLOR TEMP. button.
The color temperature to which the white balance
is set when the COLOR TEMP. button is pressed
can be selected from among 3200K, 4300K,
5600K, and 6300K on the ASSIGNABLE SW
page of the OPERATION menu. You can also
assign color temperatures to the ASSIGN 1/3/4
switches and the RET button on the lens.
For details of automatic white balance adjustment,
see page 55.
To change the color temperature when
the ND filter is switched
You can assign electrical CC (color correction)
filters to ND filters (see page 13). This allows you
to change the color temperature automatically
when the ND filter is switched.

To switch between electrical CC filters
with an ASSIGN switch
You can assign the function that switches
between electrical CC filters to an ASSIGN
switch. This allows you to switch between color
temperatures (3200K/4300K/5600K/6300K) that
have been assigned to up to four positions (A to
D) with each press of the ASSIGN switch.
Regardless of assignments to ASSIGN switches,
you can also switch between the color
temperatures assigned to each position from a
remote control unit.
