White Balance and Colour
Like the NEX-C3’s evaluative metering, the AWB can generally be relied upon to produce good results, and those who are happy to just point and shoot probably need never change it. I did find that the daylight white balance produced more favourable results in early morning sunshine, with the AWB somewhat neutralising the warm glow.
Colours of the in-camera JPEG images are typical of Sony cameras, being bright and quite vivid, and ideal for those who don’t want to spend too much time editing their images. The vivid mode will probably be a little too harsh for most people’s tastes. However, the black & white mode is excellent and images have a nice high-contrast look to them.
