If AUTO does not produce the desired results (for
example, when taking close-ups), select h and
measure a value for white balance or choose the
option that matches the light source.
• At settings other than h, auto white balance is used
with the flash. Lower the flash (P 42) to take pictures
at other settings.
• Results vary with shooting conditions. Play pictures
back after shooting to check colors in the monitor.
■ h: Custom White Balance
Choose h to adjust white balance for unusual
lighting conditions. White balance measurement
options will be displayed; frame a white object so
that it fills the monitor and press the shutter but-
ton all the way down to measure white balance.
If “COMPLETED!” is displayed, press MENU/OK to set
white balance to the measured value. This value
can be reselected by pressing MENU/OK when cus-
tom white balance options are displayed.
If “UNDER” is displayed, raise exposure compensa-
tion (P 53) and try again.
If “OVER” is displayed, lower exposure compensa-
tion and try again.
To give a deliberate color cast to your photographs,
measure a value for custom white balance using a col-
ored instead of a white object.
