The ISO numbers in the table above are the representative value.

Adjusting ISO Sensitivity (Recommended Exposure Index)
ISO sensitivity is a speed rating for recording media that incorporates an image sensor that receives light. Even when the exposure is the same, images differ depending on the ISO sensitivity.
High ISO sensitivity
Records a bright image even in dark locations while increasing shutter speed to reduce blur.
However, the image tends to become noisy.
Low ISO sensitivity
Records a smoother image.
However, when the exposure is insufficient, the image may become darker.

  • When the ISO sensitivity is [ISO4000] or higher, it takes some time to record an image because the camera overlays the image. The flash does not operate with these settings.

  • You cannot select [Auto] when the camera is set to Manual Exposure Shooting. [ISO80] is the default setting.

  • You can select only from [Auto], [ISO80] to [ISO800] when the shooting mode is set to burst or bracket shooting mode.
