Color and brightness

Your camera automatically adjusts the color and brightness value by detecting the light conditions and estimating the color temperature of ambient light. Digital cameras can only estimate the color temperature, so you may need to adjust the settings to get it correct.

If you experience yellow-colored photos in indoor environments or bluish photos when using the flash, try adjusting the color.

  1. In the BASIC (Basic) mode, tap (Color and brightness icon).
  2. Drag the sliders to adjust the color and brightness.

    The icon color changes when the settings are adjusted.

    To hide the sliders, tap (Close button) or the viewfinder.

    To reset the settings, tap [Reset].

  3. Press the camera key or tap the shutter button to take a photo or record a video.


  • Look for light with direction and color that gives a scene shape and depth. This type of light occurs just before sunrise and at sunset. Natural light from a window is also good.
