SHOOTING MENU 1 (A)
Adjust shooting settings.
The shooting menu is displayed when you press MENU/OK in shooting mode. Choose from tabs A, B, or C.
The options available vary with the shooting mode selected.
A SHOOTING MODE
Choose a shooting mode according to the type of subject (a Choosing a Shooting Mode).
F AF/MF SETTING

Choose how the camera focuses (a Focus Mode).
FACE/EYE DETECTION SETTING
Intelligent Face Detection sets focus and exposure for human faces anywhere in the frame, preventing the camera from focusing on the background in group portraits. Choose for shots that emphasize portrait subjects. You can also choose whether the camera detects and focuses on eyes when Intelligent Face Detection is on. Choose from the following options:
|Intelligent Face Detection only.|
|The camera automatically chooses which eye to focus on when a face is detected.|
RIGHT EYE PRIORITY
|The camera focuses on the right eye of subjects detected using Intelligent Face Detection.|
LEFT EYE PRIORITY
|The camera focuses on the left eye of subjects detected using Intelligent Face Detection.|
|Intelligent Face Detection and eye priority off.|
If the subject moves as the shutter button is pressed, the face may not be in the area indicated by the green border when the picture is taken.
In some modes, the camera may set exposure for the frame as a whole rather than the portrait subject.
The face selected by the camera is indicated by a green border.
If there is more than one face in the frame, the camera will select the face closest to the center; other faces are indicated by white borders. In S ADVANCED SR AUTO mode (but not in other modes), you can select a different face by pressing the selector left.
Faces can be detected with the camera in vertical or horizontal orientation.
If the camera is unable to detect the subject’s eyes because they are hidden by hair, glasses, or other objects, the camera will instead focus on faces.
If ON is selected, the AF-assist illuminator will light to assist autofocus.
The AF-assist illuminator turns off automatically when OFF is selected for o SOUND & FLASH in the setup menu.
The camera may be unable to focus using the AF-assist illuminator in some cases.
If the camera is unable to focus, try increasing the distance to the subject.
Avoid shining the AF-assist illuminator directly into your subject’s eyes.
