    I have followed the inst. but when I pick wb 1 or 2 nothing come up. I should be able to shoot a white or gray card and set White Balance.I bought the 45-175mm lens auto zooms is it possible to zoom manually while in the auto zoom mode? bigbob

    It isn't displaying the WHITE SET and ADJUST options?

    I'm not sure what you mean by auto zoom, are you talking about the step zoom (45,60,75 etc) or something else?

    After highlighting wb1 or wb2 in the menu you can press up button to shoot white/grey card or down button to fine adjust white balance shot earlier.

    When I press the wb2 it goes back to the screen for taking pix. I should get screen with button upper left and lower right. Just not there. bigbob

    I believe you are doing it right, when it goes to take a picture after pushing the set button it will take a picture to set the white balance but it wont actually save anything on to your card.
