Set up the camera with a correct exposure for the scene.

Place the white balance card under the appropriate lighting.

Push the WB button and scroll to one of the Custom white balance options (after Flash setting but before Kelvin settings, symbol is a rectangle over two triangles).

Push up on the rear control pad or touch the Select White Set option on touchscreen.

Fill the central rectangle on screen with the white balance target.

Push the Set button or touch the Set option on the touchscreen.


The camera can store up to four settings at a time if you are moving between the same conditions consistently. Otherwise, be sure to take a new white balance sample in each new lighting environment.

Thanks I will try that when I have a free day. My two main lenses are an Olympus 12-40 f/2.8 PRO and a Olympus 60mm so not sure how I could do that when shooting up close with the macro lens.
