Program Shift (only during still image shooting)

When you are not using a flash, you can change the shutter speed and aperture (F-value) combination without changing the appropriate exposure set by the camera.

Turn the control wheel to select the aperture value and shutter speed combination.

  • P” on the screen changes to “P*” when you turn the control wheel.
  • To cancel program shift, set the shooting mode to other than [Program Auto], or turn off the camera.
  • If [Footer Icon Touch] under [Shooting Screen] is set to [On], you can also perform program shift by touching the shutter speed and aperture display area at the bottom of the screen.


  • According to the brightness of the environment, the program shift may not be used.
  • Set the shooting mode to another one than “P” or turn off the power to cancel the setting you made.
  • When the brightness changes, the aperture (F-value) and shutter speed also change while maintaining the shift amount.
