Tweaking the White Balance on Sony RX-100 and NEX 6

In the previous post I alluded to adjusting the color balance of the Sony cameras, which is helpful but, in my experience, not a cure.  I realized that this is a question that I've been asked before.  The button pushes are a little obtuse, so I thought I'd get it down here:

 

  1. Go to P mode
  2. Press Fn
  3. Using the Right and Left side of the outer dial select AWB (or whatever white balance mode you are currently using) from the options at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Press lower portion of the outer dial to bring up the grid that allows you to bias towards Blue/Amber (horizontal axis) and Green/Magenta (vertical axis).  Use the up/down/right/left portions of the outer ring to make the changes you want, then press the center button.
  5. You can make these adjustments individually for each white balance preset (Auto, Sun, Cloudy, etc.)
  6. The changes stay when selecting different camera modes -- P, A, S, or the Green or Amber "simple" modes.
    1. It's necessary to make the adjustment in something other than the "Green Camera" mode though, which is why the first instruction is to go to the P mode.

 

That's it!  I have experimentd with different settings, and generally use two clicks towards Amber, and mabe one click towards Magents.  I haven't gotten it right.  Any help appreciated!
