Menu item details
- Uses the standard aperture drive system.
- Focus Priority:
- Changes the aperture drive system to prioritize auto-focusing performance. During continuous shooting using the electronic shutter, the [Focus Priority] setting allows you to continuously adjust the focus with an F-value greater than F16.
- Silent Priority:
- Changes the aperture drive system to prioritize silence so that the sound from the aperture drive is quieter than in [Standard].
- When [Focus Priority] is selected during continuous shooting, sound from the aperture drive may be audible, shooting may become slower, or the display may flicker. To avoid these phenomena, change the setting to [Standard].
- When [Silent Priority] is selected, the focusing speed may become slower, and it may be more difficult to focus on a subject.
- The focus is locked to the setting in the first shot when [Aperture Drive in AF] is set to [Standard] or [Silent Priority], and the F-value is greater than F16.
- If [Shutter Type] is set to [Mechanical Shutter], [Focus Priority] cannot be selected.
- During single-shot shooting with [Shutter Type] set to [Auto], the aperture is driven by the [Standard] system even when [Focus Priority] is selected.
- [Aperture Drive in AF] is unavailable when using a lens incompatible with this function.
