43 EN 2 Exposure The camera sets the optimum aperture value automatically for the shutter speed you have selected. Set the shutter speed depending on the type of effect you want. A higher shutter speed allows you to capture a fast-moving subject without blur, and a slower shutter speed blurs a moving subject, creating a feeling of speed or motion. Set the shutter speed depending on the type of effect you want. While holding down the MODE button, turn the main dial to set the shooting mode to S. Turn the main dial (or sub dial) to set the shutter speed. The picture looks blurred: j The possibility of camera shake spoiling your picture increases greatly during macro or ultra- telephoto shooting.

44 EN 2 Exposure Allows you to set the aperture and shutter speed manually. You can check how much it differs from the appropriate exposure by using the exposure level indicator. This mode gives you more creative control, allowing you to make whatever settings you like, regardless of the correct exposure. While holding down the MODE button, turn the main dial to set the shooting mode to M. Turn the dials to set the aperture value and the shutter speed. • The range of aperture values available varies with the lens type. • The shutter speed can be set from 1/8000 to 60 seconds. • In M mode the exposure level indicator will appear on the super control panel screen. It shows the difference (ranging from -3 EV to +3 EV) between the exposure value calculated by the currently selected aperture and shutter speed and the exposure value considered optimum by the camera. If the difference exceeds ±3 EV, the entire indicator blinks. Noise in images During shooting at slow shutter speeds, noise may appear on-screen. These phenomena are caused when current is generated in those sections of the image pickup device that are not normally exposed to light, resulting in a rise in temperature in the image pickup device or image pickup device drive circuit. This can also occur when shooting with a high ISO setting in a high-temperature environment. To reduce this noise, the camera activates the noise reduction function. g“Noise reduction” (P. 72) Manual shooting Aperture value: Turn the main dial to set the value.

46 EN 2 Exposure The viewfinder shows the focused area (depth of field) with the selected aperture value. Press the  (Preview) button to use the preview function. There are 5 ways to measure the subject brightness: Digital ESP metering, Center weighted averaging metering, and 3 types of spot metering. Select the most suitable mode for the shooting conditions. Setting display G Digital ESP metering During live view, the camera measures the light levels and calculates the light level differences in 324 separate areas of the image (49 areas when shooting with the view finder). This mode is recommended for general use. Setting the AF synchronized function to [ESP+AF] enables metering centered around the AF target that is in focus with AF. It is available when shooting using the view finder (phase difference AF).

47 EN 2 Exposure H Center weighted averaging metering This metering mode provides the average metering between the subject and the background lighting, placing more weight on the subject at the center. Use this mode when you do not want the light level of the background to affect the exposure value. I Spot metering The camera meters a very small area around the center of the subject, defined by the spot metering area mark in the viewfinder. Use this mode when there is very strong backlight. IJ Spot metering - highlight control When the overall background is bright, white areas of the image will come out gray if you use the camera’s automatic exposure. Using this mode enables the camera to shift to over-exposure, allowing accurate white reproduction. Metering area is the same as spot metering. IK Spot metering - shadow control When the overall background is dark, black areas of the image will come out gray if you use the camera’s automatic exposure. Using this mode enables the camera to shift to under-exposure, allowing accurate black reproduction. Metering area is the same as spot metering. In some situations, you may get better results if you manually compensate (adjust) the exposure value set automatically by the camera. In many cases, bright subjects (such as snow) will turn out darker than their natural colors. Adjusting toward + makes these subjects closer to their real shades. For the same reason, adjust toward – when shooting dark subjects. The exposure can be adjusted in a range of ±5.0 EV.

50 EN 2 Exposure Start shooting. • In single-frame shooting, the exposure changes every time the shutter button is pressed. • In sequential shooting, hold down the shutter button until the selected number of frames are taken. • Releasing the shutter button stops flash bracketing shooting. When it stops, 0 blinks in the viewfinder and on the control panel and 0 is displayed in green on the super control panel. How AE bracketing compensates exposure in each shooting mode Depending on the selected shooting mode, exposure is compensated in the following way: P mode : Aperture value and shutter speed A mode : Shutter speed S mode : Aperture value M mode : Shutter speed To apply AE bracketing to the exposure value you have compensated: j Compensate the exposure value, then use the AE bracketing feature. AE bracketing is applied to the exposure value you have compensated. The higher the ISO value, the greater the camera’s light sensitivity and the better its ability to shoot in low light conditions. However, higher values may give pictures a grainy appearance. [AUTO] : The sensitivity is set automatically according to the shooting conditions. For [ISO-AUTO SET], you can set the default (value normally used when the optimal exposure can be obtained) and upper limit (upper limit of ISO that automatically changes). g“ISO-AUTO SET” (P. 111) [100 - 6400] : Fixed ISO sensitivity.
