White balance and colour

Like the metering system, the auto white balance (AWB) setting produces nicely balanced colours and images that are punchy and bright straight from the camera, even when in the default colour settings.

Greens and blues are particularly well rendered, and on a bright sunny day it shouldn’t be necessary to switch to vivid mode to get well-saturated images that are suitable for printing or presentation.

Image: Colour and metering in bright conditions are almost perfect. This image needed just the nearest hint of extra contrast in Photoshop
