White Balance CorrectionN

With just one shot, three images having a different color balance can be
recorded simultaneously. Based on the color temperature of the current white
balance setting, the image will be bracketed with a blue/amber bias or
magenta/green bias. This is called white balance bracketing (WB-BKT). White
balance bracketing is possible up to ±3 levels in single-level increments.

Set the white balance bracketing

In step 2 for white balance correction, when
you turn the <5> dial, the “ ” mark on the
screen will change to “ ” (3 points).
Turning the dial to the right sets the B/A
bracketing, and turning it to the left sets the
M/G bracketing.


On the right, “Bracket” indicates the
bracketing direction and correction amount.

Pressing the <B> button will
cancel all the [WB Shift/BKT]

Press <0> to exit the setting and
return to the menu.

Bracketing Sequence

The images will be bracketed in the following sequence: 1. Standard
white balance, 2. Blue (B) bias, and 3. Amber (A) bias, or 1. Standard
white balance, 2. Magenta (M) bias, and 3. Green (G) bias.

White Balance Auto Bracketing

B/A bias ±3 levels

During WB bracketing, the maximum burst for continuous shooting will be
lower and the number of possible shots will also decrease to one-third the
normal number.

You can also set white balance correction and AEB together with white
balance bracketing. If you set AEB in combination with white balance
bracketing, a total of nine images will be recorded for a single shot.

Since three images are recorded for one shot, the card will take longer to record the shot.

BKT” stands for Bracketing.
