Choose the three film simulation types used for film simulation bracketing (a [FILM SIMULATION]).


Use the timer for group- or self-portraits, to prevent blur caused by camera shake, or to release the shutter automatically when selected conditions are met (a Using the Self Timer).


Configure the camera to take photos automatically at a preset interval. If desired, frames shot using interval timer shooting can be joined to form a time-lapse movie.

Interval timer photography cannot be used at a shutter speed of [B] (bulb) or HDR, e (4K), or during panorama or multiple exposure photography. In burst mode, only one picture will be taken each time the shutter is released.

Use of a tripod is recommended.

Check the battery level before starting. We recommend using an optional AC-9V AC power adapter and CP-W126 DC coupler.

The display sometimes turns off between shots and lights a few seconds before the next shot is taken. The display can be activated at any time by pressing the shutter button.
