[Question] Can I adjust the tone of the captured image in a camera ? (White balance compensation)

You can correct the green (G), magenta (M), blue (B) or amber (A) color tones of still images after you have shot them, and then record the corrected images.

  • White Balance Compensation is available only for captured images with this camera.
  • White Balance Compensation is not available for movies, still images with S-Cont or M-Cont modes.
  • This function may not have any effect for images shot using [Text Mode] in the SCENE mode, or images shot when [Image Settings] is set to [Black & White] or [B&W (TE)].
  • You can use white balance compensation repeatedly, but this will result in a decline in image quality due to the fact that the image is recompressed each time.

To use this feature, display the still image that you want to correct, and then go to [White Balance Compensation] in the Playback menu.
