About the Electronic Level
When [Level Setting] is turned on in the setup menu or by pressing
and holding the DISP. button, the camera uses a level indicator
and level sound to let you know whether the image is level during
shooting. The level indicator is displayed during normal symbol display
and histogram display.
If you are using the camera for the first time, read this section.
40
This is useful for keeping the image level when taking pictures of
scenery or buildings. This is also very useful for taking pictures with the
horizon visible.

indicator appears in a different place).
Caution --------------------------------------------------------------------------------• During grid guide display, no display, or when the picture display is turned off
(GP.38), the level sound is emitted, but the level indicator is not displayed.
When [Level Setting] is set to [Display+Sound], only the level sound is emitted.
• The level function is not available if the camera is held upside down, when
recording movies, and during interval shooting.
• The level function becomes less accurate when the camera is moving or when
shooting in an environment subject to moving, such as on a amusement ride.
• No level sound is emitted when [Level Setting] is set to [Display+Sound] or
[Sound] and [Volume Settings] is set to [………] (Mute). (GP.94)
• Use this function as a reference to see if images are level when shooting
images. The accuracy of the level when using the camera as a level cannot be
guaranteed.
If you are using the camera for the first time, read this section.
When tilted to the right or left:
The mark on the level indicator becomes
orange, indicating the opposite side of the
direction in which the camera is tilted.
41
About the Histogram Display
If you are using the camera for the first time, read this section.
When Histogram is on, a histogram
appears in the lower right corner on the
picture display. A histogram is a graph
indicating the number of pixels on the
vertical axis and the brightness on the
horizontal axis (from left to right, shadows
(dark areas), midtones, and highlights
(bright areas)).
By using the histogram, you can determine the brightness of an image
without being affected by the brightness around the picture display.
This also helps you correct for areas that are overly bright or dark.
If the histogram has only peaks on the
right side, this picture is overexposed
with too many pixels only for highlight
sections.
If the histogram has only peaks on the left
side without anything else, this picture
is underexposed with too many pixels
only for shadow sections. Refer to this
histogram when correcting the exposure.
Note ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------• The histogram displayed on the picture display is for reference only.
• After taking a picture, you can correct its brightness and contrast by making
adjustments to the histogram. (GP.86)
• Depending on the shooting conditions (use of the flash, dark surrounding light,
etc.), the exposure level indicated in the histogram may not correspond to the
brightness of the shot image.
• Exposure compensation has its limitation. It does not necessarily achieve the
best possible result.
• A histogram with peaks in the center may not necessarily provide the best result
to suit your particular requirements. For example, an adjustment is required if
you want to underexpose or overexpose the image.
• For information on how to correct the exposure compensation, see P.76.

the zoom ratio.
To use auto resize zoom, hold the zoom
lever at z (Telephoto) until the camera is
zoomed all the way in, then briefly release
the zoom lever and turn it to z again.
(
Image size changes each time the zoom
lever is turned to z. The current size is
displayed above the zoom bar.
The auto resize zoom is enabled when

• This product was manufactured for use in the country in which it was
purchased. The warranty is only valid in the country in which the camera was
purchased.
• Should the product fail or malfunction while you are abroad, the
manufacturer assumes no responsibility for servicing the product locally or
bearing the expenditure incurred therefore.
• Be sure not to drop or apply any sudden force to the camera.
• While you are carrying the camera, be careful not to hit it against other
objects. Take special care to not hit the lens and picture display.
• Firing the flash consecutively may heat the firing unit. Do not fire it
consecutively more than necessary.
• Do not touch the flash and keep foreign objects away from the firing unit.
Doing so can cause burns and fires.
• Do not fire the flash near eyes. It could cause visual impairment (particularly
for infants).
• Do not fire the flash near the driver of a vehicle to avoid causing accidents.
• The battery may become hot after extended use. Touching the battery
immediately after use could result in burns to your fingers.
• If the picture display or panel is exposed to sunlight, they may become
washed out and images may become hard to view.
• The picture display and panel may contain some pixels that do not remain
lit up continually in part or at all. Also, the brightness may become uneven
because of the characteristics of LCDs. These are not failures.
• Do not forcefully press the surface of the picture display.
• In an environment where the temperature changes suddenly, condensation
may occur in the camera, resulting in troubles such as fogging of the glass
surface or malfunctions of the camera. If this occurs, place the camera in a
bag to slow the temperature change as much as possible. Take it out of the
bag after the temperature difference from the atmosphere has decreased
to a fairly small amount. If condensation occurs, remove the battery and
memory card, and wait until the moisture has dried before using the camera.
• To avoid damaging the connectors, do not put any objects into the camera’s
microphone or speaker holes.
• Do not get the camera wet. Do not operate the camera with wet hands. This
can result in malfunction or an electrical shock.
