    • You can also set the shooting mode by selecting MENU (Camera Settings1) → [Shoot Mode].
  2. Select the desired value by turning the control wheel.
    • Smaller F-value: The subject is in focus, but objects in front of and beyond the subject are blurred.
      Larger F-value: The subject and its foreground and background are all in focus.
    • If the aperture value you have set is not suitable for appropriate exposure, the shutter speed on the shooting screen will blink. If this happens, change the aperture value.
  3. Adjust the focus and shoot the subject.
    The shutter speed is automatically adjusted to obtain proper exposure.


  • The brightness of the image on the screen may differ from the actual image being shot.
