I wonder how this is different from “Auto”?

The release notes has this additional information.

The white balance correction level under incandescent light can be set when the white balance is set to “Auto”.

I’ve been experimenting with the white balance settings for our office lighting.

The user guide indicates that there is Incandescent light 1 and incandescent light 2. I wonder if there is a more granular setting now?

Update with mobile phone.




Camera begins reboot process and flashes “Firmware Update” on the OLED panel on the body of the camera.

It’s not clear what the new setting does.
