∫ About auto white balance
The available white balance range is shown 
in the illustration above. When you take a 
picture beyond the available white balance 
range, the picture may appear reddish or 
bluish. Even within the confines of the 
range, the auto white balance may not 
operate properly if there are many light 
sources or there is no color close to white. 
In these cases, set the white balance to a 
mode other than [AWB].
∫ Setting the white balance manually 
Select [
] and then press 
[MENU/SET].
Aim the camera at a sheet of white paper 
etc. so that the frame in the center is 
filled by the white object only and then 
press [MENU/SET].
Press [MENU/SET] twice to close the 
menu.
• You can also press the shutter button 
halfway to finish.
