Procedure

[r] (REC) * [SET] * MENU * Quality Tab * White Balance

You can adjust white balance to match the source of light available where you are 
shooting and avoid the blue cast that results when shooting outdoors when it is 
cloudy, and the green cast that results when shooting under fluorescent lighting.

• When “Auto” is selected for the white balance setting, the camera automatically 

determines the white point of the subject. Certain subject colors and light source 
conditions can cause problems when the camera tries to determine the white point, 
which makes proper white balance adjustment impossible. If this happens, select 
the white balance setting that matches your shooting conditions (Daylight, 
Overcast, etc.).
