Custom WB or User – The user can tell the camera to use a reference white by taking a picture of a gray area under the current lighting. The camera then uses this as a White Balance reference for succeeding photos.

Tungsten or Incandescent – Corrects the yellowish hue caused by Incandescent bulbs or similar light sources.

Fluorescent – This is used when taking pictures under fluorescent lighting. Some cameras have two settings for Fluorescent since the intensity of light coming from fluorescent lamps from different manufacturers vary depending on their production standards. Some fluorescent lamps are even calibrated to produce daylight white.

Daylight – Useful for taking pictures under normal daylight.

Flash – This corrects the slightly yellowish hue of a typical Xenon Flash lighting. In some cameras this is omitted since Flash is similar to Daylight hue.

Cloudy – Even under ordinary daylight, when it is cloudy the color will tend to have a bluish hue. Use this setting to correct the color.
