Shoot Mode: Program Auto

still image, movie, slow&quick motion

Allows you to shoot with the exposure adjusted automatically (both the shutter speed and the aperture value).
You can set shooting functions such as [ISO].

  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][Program Auto].
  3. Set the shooting functions to your desired settings.
  4. Adjust the focus and shoot the subject.

Program Shift (only during still image shooting)

You can change the shutter speed and aperture (F-value) combination without changing the appropriate exposure set by the camera.

Turn the control wheel to select the aperture value and shutter speed combination.

  • The [Program Auto] icon changes from “P” to “P*” when you turn the control wheel.
  • To cancel program shift, set the shooting mode to other than [Program Auto], or turn off the camera.


  • According to the brightness of the environment, the program shift may not be used.
  • Set the shooting mode to another one than “P” or turn off the power to cancel the setting you made.
  • When the brightness changes, the aperture (F-value) and shutter speed also change while maintaining the shift amount.
