• Turn on the flash. (p. 57)
• Set ISO sensitivity options. (p. 59)
• Use a tripod to prevent your camera from shaking.

too dark because of
backlighting.
When the light source is behind the subject or when there is a high contrast between light and dark
areas, the subject may appear too dark.
• Avoid shooting toward the sun.
• Select
Backlight in s mode. (p. 37)
• Set the flash option to Fill in. (p. 57)
• Adjust the exposure. (p. 69)

Setting the display type
You can select a display type for the Shooting or Playback mode.
Each type displays different shooting or playback information.
See the table below.
A histogram is a graph that illustrates how light is distributed
in your photo. If the histogram has a high peak on the left, the
photo is underexposed and will appear dark. A peak on the
right of the graph means that the photo is overexposed and will
appear washed out. The height of the peaks is related to color
information. The more of a particular color, the taller the peak.

Using the Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, or Manual mode
Adjust the aperture value or shutter speed to control the exposure of your photos. You can use these options in the Aperture Priority,
Shutter Priority, and Manual modes.
Aperture value
The aperture is a hole that lets light into the camera. The aperture
housing contains thin, metal plates that open and close, widening
or narrowing the aperture, and controlling the amount of light that
enters the camera. The size of the aperture is closely related to
the brightness of a photo: the larger the aperture, the brighter the
photo; the smaller the aperture, the darker the photo. Note that
the larger the aperture value, the smaller the aperture size. For
example, an aperture set to 5.6 is larger than an aperture set to 11.
S Small aperture value (The size
of the aperture is large.)
S Large aperture value (The size
of the aperture is small.)
Shutter speed
Shutter speed, which is an important factor in the brightness of a
photo, refers to the amount of time it takes to open and close the
shutter. A slow shutter speed allows more time to let light in. All
things being equal, photos are brighter, but fast moving objects
tend to blur. On the other hand, a fast shutter speed allows less
time to let light in. Photos are darker, but objects in motion are
captured more clearly.

Appendixes 144
Glossary
ACB (Auto Contrast Balance)
This feature automatically improves the contrast of your images
when the subject is backlit or when there is a high contrast
between your subject and the background.
Composition
Composition in photography means arranging objects in a photo.
Usually, abiding by the rule of thirds leads to a good composition.
DCF (Design rule for Camera File system)
A specification to define a file format and file system for digital
cameras created by the Japan Electronics and Information
Technology Industries Association (JEITA).
AEB (Auto Exposure Bracket)
This feature automatically captures several images at different
exposures to help you capture a properly-exposed image.
AF (Auto Focus)
A system that automatically focuses the camera lens on the
subject. Your camera uses the contrast to focus automatically.
Aperture
The aperture controls the amount of light that reaches the
camera’s sensor.
Camera shake (Blur)
If the camera is moved while the shutter is open, the entire image
may appear blurred. This occurs more often when the shutter
speed is slow. Prevent camera shake by raising the sensitivity,
using the flash, or using a faster shutter speed. Alternately, use a
tripod, the DIS or OIS function to stabilize the camera.
Depth of field
The distance between the nearest and farthest points that can
be acceptably focused in a photograph. Depth of field varies with
lens aperture, focal length, and distance from the camera to the
subject. Selecting a smaller aperture, for example, will increase
the depth of field and blur the background of a composition.
Digital zoom
A feature that artificially increases the amount of zoom available
with a zoom lens (Optical zoom). When using the Digital zoom,
the image quality will deteriorate as the magnification increases.
Appendixes 145
Glossary
DPOF (Digital Print Order Format)
A format for writing printing information, such as selected images
and number of prints, on a memory card. DPOF-compatible
printers, sometimes available at photo shops, can read the
information from the card for convenient printing.
Exposure
The amount of light allowed to reach the camera’s sensor.
Exposure is controlled by a combination of the shutter speed, the
aperture value, and ISO sensitivity.
Flash
A speed light that helps to create adequate exposure in low-light
conditions.
EV (Exposure Value)
All the combinations of the camera’s shutter speed and lens
aperture that result in the same exposure.
EV Compensation
This feature allows you to quickly adjust the exposure value
measured by the camera, in limited increments, to improve the
exposure of your photos. Set the EV compensation to -1.0 EV to
adjust the value one step darker and 1.0 EV to one step brighter.
Exif (Exchangeable Image File Format)
A specification to define an image file format for digital cameras
created by the Japan Electronic Industries Development
Association (JEIDA).
Focal length
The distance from the middle of the lens to its focal point (in
millimeters). Longer focal lengths result in narrower angles of view
and the subject is magnified. Shorter focal lengths result in wider
angles of view.
Histogram
A graphical representation of the brightness of an image. The
horizontal axis represents the brightness and the vertical axis
represents the number of pixels. High points at the left (too dark)
and right (too bright) on the histogram indicate a photo that is
improperly exposed.
Appendixes 146
Glossary
H.264/MPEG-4
A high-compression video format established by international
standard organizations ISO-IEC and ITU-T and developed by the
Joint Video Team (JVT). This codec is capable of providing good
video quality at low bit rates.
Image sensor
The physical part of a digital camera that contains a photosite for
each pixel in the image. Each photosite records the brightness of
the light that strikes it during an exposure. Common sensor types
are CCD (Charge-coupled Device) and CMOS (Complementary
Metal Oxide Semiconductor).
ISO sensitivity
The sensitivity of the camera to light, based on the equivalent film
speed used in a film camera. At higher ISO sensitivity settings,
the camera uses a higher shutter speed, which can reduce blur
caused by camera shake and low light. However, images with
high sensitivity are more susceptible to noise.
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
A lossy method of compression for digital images. JPEG images
are compressed to reduce their overall file size with minimal
deterioration of the image resolution.
LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)
A visual display commonly used in consumer electronics. This
display needs a separate backlight, such as CCFL or LED, to
reproduce colors.
Macro
This feature allows you to capture close-up photos of very small
objects. When using the macro feature, the camera can maintain
a sharp focus on small objects at a near life-size ratio (1:1).
Metering
The metering refers to the way in which the camera measures the
quantity of light to set the exposure.
MJPEG (Motion JPEG)
A video format which is compressed as a JPEG image.
Noise
Misinterpreted pixels in a digital image that may appear as
misplaced or random, bright pixels. Noise usually occurs when
photos are shot with a high sensitivity or when a sensitivity is
automatically set in a dark place.
Appendixes 147
Glossary
OIS (Optical Image Stabilization)
This feature compensates in real-time for shaking and vibrating
while shooting. There is no image degradation compared to
Digital Image Stabilization feature.
Optical zoom
This is a general zoom which can enlarge images with a lens and
does not deteriorate quality of images.
Quality
An expression of the rate of compression used in a digital image.
Higher quality images have a lower rate of compression, which
usually results in a larger file size.
Vignetting
A reduction of an image’s brightness or saturation at the periphery
(outer edges) compared to the center of the image. Vignetting
can draw interest to subjects positioned in the center of an
image.
White balance (color balance)
An adjustment of the intensities of colors (typically the primary
colors red, green, and blue), in an image. The goal of adjusting
the white balance, or color balance, is to correctly render the
colors in an image.
Resolution
The number of pixels present in a digital image. High resolution
images contain more pixels and typically show more detail than
low resolution images.
Shutter speed
Shutter speed refers to the amount of time it takes to open and
close the shutter, and it is an important factor in the brightness of
a photo, as it controls the amount of light which passes through
the aperture before it reaches the image sensor. A fast shutter
speed allows less time to let light in and the photo becomes
darker and more easily freezes subjects in motion.
