Digital Still Camera DSC-RX100M5

Gamma Disp. Assist

Movies with S-Log gamma are assumed to be processed after shooting in order to make use of the wide dynamic range. They are therefore displayed in low contrast during shooting and may be difficult to monitor. However, using [Gamma Disp. Assist], contrast equivalent to that of normal gamma can be reproduced. In addition, [Gamma Disp. Assist] can also be applied when playing back movies on the camera's monitor/viewfinder.

  1. MENU (Setup) → [Gamma Disp. Assist].
  2. Press the top/bottom of the control wheel and select the desired setting.
