z NR slow shutter
The NR slow shutter mode reduces noise from recorded images, providing clear images.
When using certain shutter speeds*, the camera automatically works the NR slow shutter
mode and "NR" is indicated next to the shutter speed indicator.
Press the shutter
button fully down.
* When ISO is  to : 1/6 second or slower
When ISO is  to : 1/25 second or slower
• To eliminate the effects of vibration, use of a tripod is recommended.
• When a slow shutter speed is set, the processing may take some time. This is because the camera works to
remove noise during the time set by the shutter speed setting.
z Shooting techniques
When shooting a moving person, car, or spindrift, etc., using the high shutter speed,
you can express moment that is beyond what the human eye can see.
When shooting a subject such as the flow of a river at a slower shutter speed, you can
create an image that captures the subject's flowing movement. In such cases, use of a
tripod is recommended to prevent camera shake.
• When you hand-hold the camera, we recommend that you adjust the shutter speed in a range where
(Vibration warning indicator) is not indicated.
Shooting with aperture priority mode
You can adjust the amount of light that passes through the lens. If you open the aperture (a
smaller F-number), the amount of light allowed into the lens increases and the in-focus range
becomes narrower. Only the main subject is then in focus. When the aperture is closed (a
larger F-number), the amount of light decreases and the in-focus range becomes wider. The
whole image is sharpened.
The shutter speed is automatically adjusted to obtain correct exposure according to the
brightness of the subject.
Open the aperture
Then the screen turns
Close the aperture
