S&Q Settings

movie

You can record a moment that cannot be captured by the naked eye (slow-motion recording), or record a long-term phenomenon into a compressed movie (quick-motion recording). For example, you can record an intense sports scene, the moment when a bird starts to fly, a blooming flower, and a changing view of clouds or a starry sky. Sound will not be recorded.

  1. Set the mode dial to (S&Q Motion).
  2. Select MENU (Shooting) → [Shooting Mode][Exposure Mode] → and select the desired setting of slow-motion/quick-motion (Program Auto, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, or Manual Exposure).
  3. Select MENU (Shooting) → [Image Quality][S&Q Settings] → Select an item to set, and then select the desired setting.
  4. Press the MOVIE (movie) button to start recording.
    • Press the MOVIE button again to stop recording.

Hint

Note

  • In slow-motion/quick-motion recording, the actual shooting time differs from the time recorded in the movie. The recordable time displayed toward the top of the monitor shows the remaining recording time for the movie, not the remaining recording time on the memory card.
  • In slow-motion recording, the shutter speed becomes faster and you may not be able to obtain the proper exposure. If this happens, decrease the aperture value or set the ISO sensitivity to a higher value.
  • During slow-motion/quick-motion recording, the following functions are not available.
    • [Time Code Run]
    • [Time Code Output]
