Aperture Priority

You can shoot by adjusting the aperture and changing the range in focus, or by defocusing the background.

  1. Set the Still/Movie/S&Q dial to the desired shooting mode.
    • If you select S&Q (slow-motion/quick-motion), you can select [S&Q Motion] or [Time-lapse] on the [ Shoot Mode] screen.
  2. Set the mode dial to A (Aperture Priority).
  3. Select the desired value by turning the front dial/rear dial L.
    • Smaller F-value: The subject is in focus, but objects in front of and beyond the subject are blurred.
      Larger F-value: The subject and its foreground and background are all in focus.
    • If the aperture value you have set is not suitable for appropriate exposure, the shutter speed on the shooting screen will blink. If this happens, change the aperture value.
  4. Adjust the focus and shoot the subject.
    The shutter speed is automatically adjusted to obtain proper exposure.


  • The brightness of the image on the screen may differ from the actual image being shot.
