Can White Balancing be turned OFF with the a900/a850?


Recommended Posts

Procedure for the a900

1. Press the Fn button

2. Cursor over to the box just above the number of exposures remaining (one up from the bottom on the right)

3. Press the cursor center button

There you will find the following selections: AWB, Daylight, Shade, Cloudy, Tungsten, Fluorescent, Flash, Custom Color Temperature, and three stored custom settings. All of these selections can be individually adjusted.

Sorry, I just re-read your question and I didn't answer it specifically. The answer is "No". One of the white balance settings must be selected, and "Off" is not a setting. I am not sure what it means to turn white balance off, and I don't know of a camera that has that setting. Would that be black & white if white balance is off?

Custom WB only deals with two colors, not all three. 

However UniWB -- which I had never heard of -- apparently answers my question.  There is a lot on the WEB about, but I don't know if I will go down that road.  Nice to know it's there though!
