“Sensitivity” refers to the camera's sensitivity to light. Lift and rotate the ISO dial to choose from values between 200 and 12800, or select [L (100)], [H (25600)], or [H (51200)] for special situations. Higher 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, particularly at [H (51200)], while choosing [L (100)] reduces dynamic range. Values of from ISO 200 to ISO 6400 are recommended in most situations. If [A] is selected, the camera will adjust sensitivity automatically in response to shooting conditions according to the option selected for [SHOOTING SETTING] > [ISO AUTO SETTING]. Choose from [AUTO 1], [AUTO 2], and [AUTO 3].
If [COMMAND] is selected for [BUTTON/DIAL SETTING] > [ISO DIAL SETTING (A)], sensitivity can also be adjusted by setting sensitivity to [A] and rotating the front command dial.
Sensitivity is not reset when the camera is turned off.
