After you apply white balance correction, a little plus or minus sign appears next to the white balance symbol in the Camera Settings display, as shown on the left in Figure 6-21. That's your reminder that white balance shift is being applied. The same symbol appears in the viewfinder. You can see the exact correction values in Shooting Menu 2, as shown on the right in the figure.
