The table below shows how the color tone changes based on various light sources, compared with a subject that appears white under the sunlight.

Use this feature when the color tone of the image did not come out as you expected, or when you want to change the color tone on purpose for photographic expression. Notes • When the exposure mode is set to AUTO, AUTO+, or Scene Selection, [White Balance] is fixed to [Auto WB] and you cannot select other modes. • If the only light source available is a mercury lamp or a sodium lamp, the camera will not be able to acquire the accurate white balance because of the characteristics of the light source. Use the flash in such cases.
