White Balance
Using the White Balance function, you can select a setting that matches the light illuminating the subject 
you are shooting (Daylight, Fluorescent, etc.). Based on your selection, the camcorder automatically 
adjusts the color of the subject so the whites and colors in your recording or photo look natural.
PRECHECK!

Submenu items
Auto: Controls the white balance automatically in response to lighting conditions.
Daylight ( ): For recording outdoors in clear, natural light.
Cloudy (
): For recording in the shade or cloudy weather.
Fluorescent (
): For recording under white fl uorescent lights.
Tungsten (
): For recording under halogen lamps and incandescent lights.
Custom WB (
): Lets you adjust the white balance manually to match the light source or situation.


The White Balance (WB) process removes unrealistic color casts, so that white objects are rendered 
white in your image and all other colors look natural. Proper white balance has to take into account the 
“color temperature” of a light source, which refers to the relative warmth or coolness of white light.
Understanding White Balance
1.  Touch the Menu (
) tab “White Balance”  “Custom WB.”
The “(
) Set White Balance” indicator appears.
2.  Fill the screen with a white subject, and then touch the (
) tab.
The camcorder stores the white balance setting.
3.  To exit the menu, touch the Exit (
) or Return (
) tab.
The camcorder applies the stored white balance the next time you record.
To set the white balance manually
When setting the white balance manually, the subject must be white, otherwise, your camcorder may not detect an 
appropriate setting value.
The adjusted setting remains until you set the white balance again.
During normal outdoor recording, setting White Balance to “Auto” may provide better results.
Cancel the digital zoom function for clear and precise white balance setting. page 63
