White Balance Auto Bracketing


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 <> 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 approx. one-third the normal number.

  • You can also set white balance correction and AEB together with white balance bracketing. If you set AEB in combination with white balance bracketing, a total of nine images will be recorded for a single shot.

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

  • When white balance bracketing is set, the white balance icon will blink.

  • You can change the number of shots for white balance bracketing

  • BKT” stands for bracketing.
