Measure white balance.
Before the indicators stop flashing, frame the 
reference object so that it fills the viewfinder and 
press the shutter-release button all the way down. The camera 
will measure a value for white balance and store it in the 
preset selected in Step 3. No photograph will be recorded; 
white balance can be measured accurately even when the 
camera is not in focus.

panel and viewfinder if you attempt to measure a new value.
