White balance (WB) is for making the white areas look white. Normally, 
the <Q> (Auto) setting will obtain the correct white balance. If natural-
looking colors cannot be obtained with <Q>, you can select the white 
balance to match the light source or set it manually by shooting a white 
object.

To the human eye, a white object looks white regardless of the type of 
lighting. With a digital camera, the color temperature is adjusted with 
software to make the white areas look white. This adjustment serves as 
the basis for the color correction. The result is natural-looking colors in 
the pictures.
