Default White Balance Question

I am trying to find out the Degrees Kelvin for the White
Balance settings on the S602. I have found that the
Fluorescent 1 setting works well to balance out the colors
at sunset, but that would make it aprox 2500 - 3100 Kelvin,
when the "normal" daylight fluorescent setting would be
4000 - 4800. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That's a good question, specially since they offer all those flourescent options. Northlight daylight reference, as used on most TV tube phosphors used to be 6500, guess one will be that. It'll probably have to come from Fuji. It's rather pointless putting icon options without saying what they are.

It would be nice if they mean't 'warm white' daylight etc - but then who stands on a chair to look at the tubes before shooting! Have you got a photometer and want to set the camera according to the measured light temp? I can understand that.
