Setting custom white-balance

I'm reading the owners manual on how to set the custom white balance and it says to hit either F1 or F4 to set the white balance...nothing happens when I do that. What am I missing?

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 !

Sony a550 white balance


Do you try to set the white balance, wheel the camera is still in an automatic mode or in a scene mode?, because that won't work. If you keep having problems while in a manual mode, let us know, so I can look again to this problem.

Press Menu, Video Custom Settings, adjust Hue to reduce green tone, if that does not solve your problem, go to Advance Video Settings Menu, White Balance, adjust white balance by tweaking R, G, B gain/ bias settings or hit Initial set for factory default settings.

Problem


You haven't specified what camera model you have, but I suspect the problem could be due to the white balance setting on the camera. Read your owners manual and check the section on adjusting the white balance. If you have it set for something opposite to the actual ambient lighting condition (ie the setting is for incandescent light bulbs, and you are shooting outdoors in sunlight, for example), then it can really throw the colour spectrum off.

Pentax istDS Digital Camera, How to set Custom White Balance in Auto Modes


Custom white balance can only be set in P, Tv, Av, or M modes. The auto modes are, well, automatic. They are all preconfigured and intended for ease of use not configurability.

Can't find custom white balance


If your camera is on Auto then you will not have a Menu 2 tab. Turn it to Manual (M) then you will see if. At least that is how mine it. I am sure they are all the same.

Colour balance with setting in the D40


Your white balance setting is too warm. Try setting a custom white balance or move your current white balance towards the "Tungsten" end. "Cloudy" is a good start.

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!

First, put the mode dial to "P". Now you can use the menu to do a "CUSTOM RESET" (see p.118 of the printed manual).

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....

Should the custom white balance feature be used with or without a flash?


You can use customer white balance with or without a flash. If you use a flash to do a custom WB, you must adjust the F-stop and make it narrower. If you do not do so, the custom WB will over expose every time when using a white card. White balance is used to measure the Kelvin temperature that the light source is outputting so that the camera can set itself to that specific reading.
