4. White Balance > Mired WB Fine-Tuning Values

Mired WB Fine-Tuning Values

(User’s Manual pages 97–98)

One of methods used in measuring color temperatures is to use micro reciprocal degrees, commonly referred to by the abbreviation mired. You may enjoy studying this color temperature measurement. Why? Simply because Nikon makes the WB fine-tuning adjustment in mired values. Mired is merely a way of expressing a very fine color temperature measurement. The manual doesn’t directly mention it on page 98, and you are not required to understand mired values to use the D500, but does help to understand the adjustment method.

If you choose to fine tune any of the color temperature settings after you have selected one of the preset WB values, the last menu screen (see Figure 4-3) allows you to do so by mired clicks. Each press of the Multi Selector is equal to five mired values each in the four color directions. Up is green (G), down is magenta (M), left is blue (B), and right is amber (A).
