1 Notes
•  At settings other than 
h, auto white balance is used 
with the fl ash.  Lower the fl ash (pg. 26) to take pic-
tures at other settings.
• Results vary with shooting conditions.  Play pictures 
back after shooting to check colors in the monitor.

Choose 
h to adjust white 
balance for unusual lighting 
conditions.  The options at 
right will be displayed; frame 
a white object so that it fi lls 
the monitor and press the shutter button 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 
is stored even when the battery is removed and 
can be reselected by pressing MENU/OK when cus-
tom white balance options are displayed.
If “UNDER” is displayed, raise exposure compensa-
tion (pg. 41) and try again.  
If “OVER” is displayed, lower exposure compensa-
tion and try again.
2 Tip
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.
