White Balance

Your camera offers a variety of white balance modes providing you with the opportunity to neutralise the color of the light under which you're shooting and, thereby, produce more accurate (neutral) rendition of color.

Auto White Balance (AWB) empowers the camera to determine both the color of light under which you're shooting and to select what it thinks is the correct white balance setting to achieve accurate color rendition. AWB is a relatively unsophisticated judge and, as a consequence, either does a good or a bad job.

Your camera also allows you to manually set the white balance to one of a range of options including the following:

  • Daylight/Sunny

  • Cloudy

  • Shade

  • Tungsten

  • Fluorescent

  • ¬†Flash
