This menu entry allows you to choose one of the white balance preset values from among Auto, Daylight, Shade, Cloudy/Twilight/Sunset, Tungsten, White Fluorescent Light, Flash, or Custom. You’ll find more information on choosing the right white balance in Chapters 4 and 7. Once you’ve selected White balance from the Shooting 2 menu, use the Quick Control Dial to choose a setting from the two columns of entries, then press the Set button to lock it in. (See Figure 3.10.) If you choose the “K” entry, you can select an exact color temperature from 2,500K to 10,000K using the Main Dial. Choosing the right white balance can have a dramatic effect on the colors of your image, as you can see in Figure 3.11.
