You cannot access white balance settings while in the Auto or a Scene mode. Set the camera to P, Av, Tv, or Manual, then press the Func/Set button. White balance should be the top icon on the left side of the LCD (usually says AWB).

How do you find the white balance on this camera?


This camera does not have a customizable white balance. It does have some presets -- they are:

  • Auto (default)-automatically corrects white
balance. Ideal for general picture taking.

  • Daylight-for pictures in natural lighting.
  • Tungsten-corrects the orange cast of household
light bulbs. Ideal for indoor pictures under tungsten or
halogen lighting without flash.

  • Fluorescent-corrects the green cast of fluorescent
lighting. Ideal for indoor pictures under fluorescent
lighting without flash.

To access them, press the [Menu] button and look for White Balance -- the icon is a Sun and Light Bulb symbol.

I'm using my Canon 350D to shoot jewellery in a pop up "cube" and it gives a very yellow light. Is there any way to adjust the 350D for a bright white light? Many thanks Anthony


Try the various white balance settings until you find the one you're looking for. If you don't find one in the presets, you can set a manual white balance using a white sheet of paper...check your owner's manual for instructions.

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

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.

What is the function of the custom white balance setting?


Custom setting mode allows a user to calibrate the camera to a specific light condition. Color reproduction may be inadequate with preset white balance settings in mixed lighting condition or when critical control is needed. You can calibrate the camera's white balance to the specific light condition (color temperature) so that the lighting of the selected area is neutral.

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.

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.
