One touch white balance

Thanks for answering my question about one touch wb. Just want to make sure I understand completely....so once I have photogra[phed the white/gray card, the WB is registered. Does the one touch wb only register ONE WB at a time? If i enter a new one touch wb does it just erase the previous one? You mentioned that to erase the one touch wb you can "reset the camera"...What does that mean and how do you do this? Many thanks for all your help!

I have the e-500 and can only register one at a time. once you set the white balance using the one touch button, it stays that way until you one touch again or custom reset. however it may be possible to save to 'my mode' 1 or 2 ... or even 'custom reset' 1 or 2. according to the manual on page 119, it saves your wb setting and most of the other changes you have made.

reset camera... soft reset. Mode Dial to P, press Menu, right arrow (AF button), to card setup, down to custom reset, right to custom reset, OK, up to YES, the OK

My present White Balance won't Work on my D80. When I press and hold the buttons, nothing happens. The buttons work independently on other functions, just not this one. Thanks!!


Note That you must keep the WB button pressed with your left thumb while you move the main front-right dial with your right thumb if you are trying to use the WB button. Pressing WB once will not change the WB settings.

Another way to change these settings is through the cameras menus. Hope this helps.

The pictures are too blue.


It sounds like a White Balancing problem. I'd guess if it's set on Auto WB, then you'll need to do it manually. Some digital cameras tend to produce that blue tint when left to white balance themselves.

If you don't understand completely let us know the exact model of the camera and I'm sure somebody can talk you through it!

Colour balance for majority of photo is good but sky or white goes to pink. Colour balance is obviously not the problem. Help?


How about White Balance? Taking a photo outdoors, for example, white your WB is set on "Fluorescent Light" will turn your images bluish. To set WB, see the owners manual.

One touch white balance


white balance... you can go through the white balance menu and change the custom to whatever temperature you want... camera 1, wb, cwb, right to change temp. you can also change the red and green on the presets by pressing right at each preset temperature.

now if you are using one touch wb, then put the wb on one touch, then in camera ready hold in the one touch button and press the shutter button while pointing to white or gray card. this is stored as one touch until one touch is done again or the camera is reset. turning off camera will not reset the custom wb.

so to access your stored one touch put wb on one touch because this stores that last white balance done

Setting custom white-balance


F1 or 4 are white balance memories, rather than buttons to set the WB.
Menu > Custom WB > Right Arrow > Select F1 or F4 > 
Then put your piece of white card in front of the lense and hit the shutter button. Make sure you haev enough light though !

XT problem with white balance/aperture


You should be able to set your white balance by taking a photograph of something white filling the screen with the correct exposure. If it is underexposed, you will not get white, it will look yellowish. Make sure while you are photographing the object, you switch your lens focus mode to manual.
Go the second setup (tools) tab and select custom wb. The custom white balance screen will appear and you will choose the image that you want to base the white balance off of by pressing the set button.
This will take you back to the menu. Go back to white balance and choose custom wb down in the bottom right corner of the screen.

Hope this helps!

Manual white balance


Click the AF-WB button and then with the wheel in the back of the camera select either K or any of the other settings. If set to K then you must go to your Menu (click menu button on back) then go to Color temp. and select your Kelvin tempature. Hope that helps....

White Balance FD71


It's in the manual for sure. There are a couple of preset WB settings in the camera. You can access these by pressing the WB button on the lens, it will change the WB setting from one to another for every press. You can also do custom WB with one push botton.

White Balance


Color reproduction differs depending on the lighting conditions. For instance, when daylight, the setting sun or indoor lighting is reflected on white paper, the shade of white produced will be slightly different for each. By setting the WB (White Balance), you can achieve more natural-looking color. You can also preview different color tones by trying the different settings under the actual light source, and checking the result on the viewfinder and monitor. You can choose mode from Auto, Preset 1, Preset 2, Custom, One-touch, and White balance compensation.
