Changes have been made to the procedure for choosing a color temperature when [Choose color temperature] is selected for white balance (Choosing a Color Temperature). You can adjust color temperature on the A (amber)–B (blue) and G (green)–M (magenta) axes, just as you would when fine-tuning other white balance options.

Using the Menus

When prompted to choose a color temperature, press W (Q) to view fine-tuning options. Use the multi selector to position the cursor on the grid.

  • The cursor can be moved up to six steps from the center along either axis. The selected value is displayed to the right of the grid.

  • The A (amber)–B (blue) axis corresponds to color temperature and is ruled in increments of 0.5. A change of 1 is equivalent to approximately 5 mired.

  • The G (green)–M (magenta) axis has effects similar to color compensation filters and is ruled in increments of 0.25. A change of 1 is equivalent to approximately 0.05 diffuse density units.

Using Buttons

To make fine adjustments to color temperature when [Choose color temperature] is selected for white balance, hold the U button and use the multi selector.
