One-touch white balance
Measure white balance by framing a piece of paper or other white object under the lighting
that will be used in the ﬁ nal photograph. This is useful when shooting a subject under natural
light, as well as under various light sources with different color temperatures.
Select [P], [Q], [W] or [X] (one-touch white balance 1, 2, 3 or 4) and
press the INFO button.
Photograph a piece of colorless (white or gray) paper.
• Frame the object so that it ﬁ lls the display and no shadows fall it.
• The one-touch white balance screen appears.
Select [Yes] and press z.
• The new value is saved as a preset white balance option.
• The new value is stored until one-touch white balance is measured again. Turning the
power off does not erase the data.
• If the subject is too bright or too dark or visibly tinted, the message [WB NG Retry] will be
displayed and no value will be recorded. Correct the problem and repeat the process from
