canons - how to set custom white balance?

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Catherine Jo Morgan, Nov 4, 2003.

  1. I can get to the menu and get to the point where it says "evaluate white
    balance" but don't know what button to push to get the camera to go ahead
    and do that. I've tried several options but haven't found anything that
    seems to work. The menu and instructions have an odd icon sort of like )(
    but I don't know what they mean.

    Anyone know how to do this? I'm using a G2 but I think quite a few recent
    Canon digitals have a similar menu item.

    With the camera aimed at a white card or gray card and with the card filling
    most of the view finder or LCD screen, press the top button to the left of
    the LCD screen with the *by it. That will set the white balance.

  3. Thanks! Now that you've pointed it out, I can see the resemblance
    between )( and * .
