One touch white balance

Why useful

The automatic or preset white balance is useful for normal situations. In case you would like to have a precise white balance or you are working in difficult light situations customized white balance offers you much better results. In case you don’t work with RAW files, which can change white balance in post-processing, with OM-D cameras you could use the One Touch White Balance.

4. As soon as you took the image the camera asks you whether you would like to save the white balance or not.

Pro Tip

In case you need to have custom white balance often you could also program a button with the function. This has the advantage that you could save the customized white balance by pressing the button only, without going through the menu.
