Adjust the camera’s sensitivity to light.
To view sensitivity settings, press the [ISO] button.
|Sensitivity is automatically adjusted in response to shooting conditions.|
|–||Adjust sensitivity manually. Selected value is shown in display.|
|Choose for special situations. Note that mottling may appear in pictures taken at [H], while [L] reduces dynamic range.|
Sensitivity is not reset when the camera is turned off.
Pressing the [ISO] button in F (movie) mode displays the B [MOVIE SETTING] > F [ISO] item in the movie menus.
High values can be used to reduce blur when lighting is poor, while lower values allow slower shutter speeds or wider apertures in bright light; note, however, that mottling may appear in pictures taken at high sensitivities.
Auto Sensitivity ([A])
Choose the base sensitivity, maximum sensitivity, and minimum shutter speed for [AUTO1], [AUTO2], and [AUTO3].
|[MIN. SHUTTER SPEED]||1/500–1/4 SEC, AUTO|
|[MIN. SHUTTER SPEED]||AUTO|
The camera automatically chooses a sensitivity between the default and maximum values; sensitivity is only raised above the default value if the shutter speed required for optimal exposure would be slower than the value selected for [MIN. SHUTTER SPEED].
If the value selected for [DEFAULT SENSITIVITY] is higher than that selected for [MAX. SENSITIVITY], [DEFAULT SENSITIVITY] will be set to the value selected for [MAX. SENSITIVITY].
The camera may select shutter speeds slower than [MIN. SHUTTER SPEED] if pictures would still be underexposed at the value selected for [MAX. SENSITIVITY].
If [AUTO] is selected for [MIN. SHUTTER SPEED], the camera will automatically choose a minimum shutter speed fast enough to prevent blur caused by subject motion or camera shake (the minimum shutter speed is not affected by the option selected for image stabilization).
