White Balance Auto Bracketing

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 amount.
  • In step 2 for white balance correction, when you turn the <> 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 <DISP> button will cancel all the [WB Shift/BKT] settings.
  • Press <> 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.

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.

  • Since three images are recorded for one shot, the card will take longer to record the shot.
  • "BKT" stands for Bracketing.
