Personal white balance
Use the provided software to register Personal white balance settings.
Not displayed if no Personal white balance settings have been registered. 
The three RGB (red, green, and blue) primary colors exist in the light 
source in varying proportions depending on the color temperature. 
When the color temperature is high, there is more blue. And when the 
color temperature is low, there is more red. 
To the human eye, a white object looks white regardless of the type of 
lighting. With a digital camera, the color temperature can be adjusted 
with software so that the colors in the image look more natural. The 
subject’s white color is used as the criteria for adjusting the other colors. 
The camera’s <
Q
> setting uses the CMOS sensor for auto white 
balance.
