Basic troubleshooting
Learn to solve common problems by setting shooting options.
The subject’s eyes
appear red.
Red eye occurs when the subject's eyes reflect light from the camera flash. Set the flash option to Red-eye. (p. 69)
Photos have dust spots. If dust particles are present in the air, you may capture them in photos when you use the flash.
•	Turn off the flash or avoid capturing photos in a dusty place.
•	Set ISO sensitivity options. (p. 72)
Photos are blurred. Blurring can occur if you capture photos in low light conditions or hold the camera incorrectly.
Use the OIS function or half-press [Shutter] to ensure the subject is in focus. (p. 41)
Photos are blurred when
shooting at night.
As the camera tries to let in more light, the shutter speed slows. This can make it difficult to hold the camera steady long
enough to capture a clear photo and may result in camera shake.
•	Select Low Light Shot in s Smart Mode. (p. 51)
•	Turn on the flash. (p. 70)
•	Set ISO sensitivity options. (p. 72)
•	Use a tripod to prevent your camera from shaking.
Subjects come out
too dark because of
backlighting.
When the light source is behind the subject or when there is a high contrast between light and dark areas, the subject may
appear too dark.
•	Avoid shooting toward the sun.
•	Set the flash option to Fill in. (p. 70)
•	Adjust the exposure. (p. 80)
•	Set the Auto Contrast Balance (ACB) option. (p. 81)
•	Set the metering option to Spot if a subject is in the center of the frame. (p. 81)

About histograms
A histogram is a graph that illustrates how light is distributed in your photo. If the
histogram has a high peak on the left, the photo is underexposed and will appear
dark. A peak on the right of the graph means that the photo is overexposed and
will appear washed out. The height of the peaks is related to color information. The
more of a particular color, the taller the peak.

Preventing your subject from being out of focus
It may be difficult to get your subject in focus when:

- there is little contrast between the subject and background (for example,
when your subject is wearing clothing that is similar in color to the
background)

- the light source behind the subject is too bright

- the subject is shiny or reflective

- the subject includes horizontal patterns, such as blinds

- the subject is not positioned in the center of the frame
‡When you capture photos in low light
Turn on the flash.

‡When subjects are moving rapidly
Use the Continuous
shooting function.

Aperture value
The aperture is a hole that lets light into the camera. The aperture housing contains
thin, metal plates that open and close, widening or narrowing the aperture, and
controlling the amount of light that enters the camera. The size of the aperture is
closely related to the brightness of a photo: the larger the aperture, the brighter
the photo; the smaller the aperture, the darker the photo. Note that the larger the
aperture value, the smaller the aperture size. For example, an aperture set to 5.6 is
larger than an aperture set to 11.
S Small aperture value (The size of the
aperture is large.)
S Large aperture value (The size of the
aperture is small.)
Shutter speed
Shutter speed, which is an important factor in the brightness of a photo, refers to
the amount of time it takes to open and close the shutter. A slow shutter speed
allows more time to let light in. All things being equal, photos are brighter, but fast
moving objects tend to blur. On the other hand, a fast shutter speed allows less time
to let light in. Photos are darker, but objects in motion are captured more clearly.
S Slow shutter speed S Fast shutter speed
Using the Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, or Manual mode
