Shoot Mode: Aperture Priority

still image, movie, slow&quick motion

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 switch to the desired shooting mode.
    • If S&Q (slow-motion/quick-motion) is selected and [Shoot Mode Sel. Screen] is set to [Display], the [ Shoot Mode] screen in Step 2 will be displayed at this point.
  2. MENU (Shooting) → [Shooting Mode][Shoot Mode]/[Shoot Mode]/[ Shoot Mode][Aperture Priority].
  3. Select the desired value by turning the control wheel.
    • 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.
