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 for white balance will make photographs 
slightly “colder” but will not actually make them blue.

Color Temperature Fine-Tuning
When Choose color temp. is selected, you can 
view the color temperature while fine-tuning 
white balance.

“Mired”
Any given change in color temperature produces a greater difference in 
color at low color temperatures than it would at higher color 
temperatures. For example, a change of 1000 K produces a much 
greater change in color at 3000 K than at 6000 K. Mired, calculated by 
multiplying the inverse of the color temperature by 10
6
, is a measure of 
color temperature that takes such variation into account, and as such is 
the unit used in color-temperature compensation filters. E.g.:
• 4000 K–3000 K (a difference of 1000 K)=83 mired
• 7000 K–6000 K (a difference of 1000 K)=24 mired
