I could not found white balance in shooting mood


You can set the white balance only in one of the P, S, A, and M modes. In the point&shoot modes the camera will always automatically set the white balance (and just about everything else).
In one of the PSAM modes you can set the white balance in the Shooting menu. Full details are in the "White Balance (P, S, A, and M Modes)" section of the manual (page 70 in my copy).

Is it possible to turn off the white balance in a Sony Cybershot DSC H5?


White Balance is not a setting that can ever be turned off, it is simply your camera's way of telling what is white so that it can process colors correctly. You can however adjust the white balance manually or simply set it to auto. Auto white balance usually works great and I would highly recommend using it. To adjust your white balance, here are the steps:

1) Press the menu button. scroll using your arrow pad to the WB option and then press the Control Button.

2) This should bring up your white balance selection screen. Keep in mind that if your camera is in full auto ( the dial is set to the camera icon ) you will not be able to adjust your white balance.

I hope this helps!

How to set up nikon d40 white balance


You have to be in one of the PSAM modes.

Press the Info button on the back. Navigate to the WB entry and press OK. Choose the desired WB and press OK.

One of the options is PRE, where the camera can measure the light and set the WB appropriately. Place a neutral gray or white object under the lighting you'll be using. Select White Balance>White Balance Preset, highlight Measure, and press Right on the multiselector. Highlight Yes and press Right. Frame the reference object so it fills the viewfinder and press the shutter release button. If all goes well the camera responds with "Data acquired.

It's actually easier to do than to describe (or read about). Get the manual out, try it a couple of times, and it'll quickly become second nature.

Clouds appear pink rather than white


check the white balance setting. You need to reset white balance each time you use camera whether you are shooting inside or out and for the time of day Auto does not always give you the best results.

Unsteady White balance


You must switch to preset, push the awb button on the front to switch from auto white balance indoor to auto white balance sunlight (3200k to 5600k). This will automatically balance the camera to the approximate settings needed. For fine tuning the white balance.....
If you want to set the A and B buttons, first switch to A, then hit the Auto button by the user 1,2 3 button until you are off of auto total white auto focus auto iris mode AWB A ch will show in the viewer hit the Auto again and ATW shows, meaning Auto total white is on, and you will not have control over the white balance, it will continue to float and try to automatically balance in the middle of your footage. Once you are on AWB A ch from hitting the AUTO button, then point the camera at the white you are balancing to (of course put the white under the lighting you want to balance to) push the AWB button on the front of the camera and hold it in until the camera goes through the white balance mode and the black balance mode,...the camera will go dark while this is being done but an OK with the correct color temperature will show briefly on the screen when it is done and you can release the AWB button. Now you have set the A button to the white balance for the current lighting.
If you are going to be switching between indoor and outdoor, do the same for the B button above and set it's white balance to the exterior light color temp. that way you can just switch between A and B when you are moving fast between interior and exterior shots and have the correct color temp.
You could always leave the switch on preset, and hit the AWB button on the front to switch from 3200 to 5600, but remember not all light is either 3200 or 5600, that is why we use the A and B settings and get the White balance for the exact color temp of the space being shot in.

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....

Balance Function


This function is useful when you need more precise white balance than the Preset White Balance can provide. To set the optimum white balance for the shooting conditions, point the camera at a white object under the light source that you want to use, and press the OK button to set the white balance.
