The white balance refers to the correctness of 
colour reproduction under various lighting. If the 
white balance is correct, all other colours will be 
accurately reproduced.
The white balance is usually adjusted 
automatically. However, more advanced 
camcorder operators control this function 
manually to achieve a more professional colour/
tint reproduction.
To change the setting
Set “u” to the desired mode. (
੬ pg. 37)
● The selected mode indicator except “AUTO” 
appears.
[AUTO]: White balance is adjusted 
automatically.
 MWB: Adjust the white balance manually 
when shooting under various types of lighting.

(

● A subject can be shot under various types of 
lighting conditions indoors (natural, fluorescent, 
candlelight, etc.). Because the colour temperature 
is different depending on the light source, the 
subject tint will differ depending on the white 
balance settings. Use this function for a more 
natural result.
● Once you adjust white balance manually, the 
setting is retained even if the power is turned off or 
the battery removed.
