WB (light source)
White balance represents the light source that influences on the colour of a photo.
The colour of a photo depends on the type and quality of the light source. If you want the 
colour of your photo to be realistic, select an appropriate lighting condition to calibrate the 
white balance, such as Auto WBDaylightCloudyTungsten, or adjust colour temperature 
manually.
You can also adjust colour for the preset light sources so that the colours of the photo match 
the actual scene under mixed lighting conditions.
Tap 
MODE 
→ Expert → PAS, or M to access one of the expert modes.
In expert mode, tap   
→   → WB (light source), and then select an option.
•  Auto WB: Use automatic settings depending on the lighting conditions.
•  Daylight: Use this for sunny days. This option results in photos closest to the natural 
colours of the scene.
•  Cloudy: Use this for cloudy days or in shadows. Photos taken on cloudy days tend to be 
more bluish than on sunny days. This option offsets that effect.
•  Fluorescent_H: Use this when shooting under a daylight fluorescent lamp, especially for 
white fluorescent light.
•  Fluorescent_L: Use this when shooting under a daylight fluorescent lamp, especially for 
white fluorescent light of very white hues.
•  Tungsten: Use this under incandescent bulbs or halogen lamps. Incandescent tungsten 
bulbs tend to have a reddish hue. This option offsets that effect.
•  Custom set: Use this to set a custom white balance. You can manually set the white 
balance by tapping  , and then shooting a white sheet of paper. Fill the spot metering 
circle with the paper and set the white balance.
•  Colour temperature: Use this to manually adjust the colour temperature of the light 
source. Colour temperature is a measurement in degrees Kelvin that indicates the specific 
type of light source. You can get a warmer photo with a higher value and a cooler photo 
with a lower value. Tap  , and then drag the slider or tap   or   to adjust the value.
