The Elura 50 is designed to determine white balance automatically. You also can use standard preset values for indoors (3200° K) and outdoors (5600° K) or you can manually set the white balance. Manually setting the white balance is useful when shooting subjects with one dominant color such as the sky, close-ups, rapidly changing lighting conditions, and places lit by certain types of fluorescent or mercury vapor lights.
