Nikon 1546 User Manual (en)

When the camera is ready to measure white 
balance, a flashing 
D (L) will appear in 
the viewfinder and information display.
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. No photograph will be recorded; white balance can be measured 
accurately even when the camera is not in focus.
Check the results.
If the camera was able to measure a value for 
white balance, the message shown at right 
will be displayed and 
a will flash in the 
viewfinder for about eight seconds before 
the camera returns to shooting mode. To 
return to shooting mode immediately, press 
the shutter-release button halfway.
If lighting is too dark or too bright, the 
camera may be unable to measure white 
balance. A message will appear in the 
information display and a flashing 
b a 
will appear in the viewfinder. Press the 
shutter-release button halfway to return to 
Step 4 and measure white balance again.
