CAPTURE [CONTINUOUS] : Images will be taken HIGH SPEED continuously until the shutter CONTINUOUS button is released. SINGLE The shooting capacity depends on the memory. [HIGH SPEED] : This takes 3 shots continuously (about 2.5 shots per second) when the shutter is pressed down and held. [M. CAPTURE] : This takes 7 shots per second, when the shutter is pressed and held down. After completing the continuous shooting, images are saved and the images play back on the Rear LCD. The maximum number of shots is 20 and the image size is fixed as 1024x768. [AEB] : Take three pictures in a series using different exposures : standard exposure (0.0EV), Short exposure (-1/2EV) and over exposure (+1/2EV). High resolution and picture quality increases file saving time, which increases stand-by time. If the [CONTINUOUS], [HIGH SPEED], [M. CAPTURE] or [AEB] sub menu is selected, the flash is switched off automatically. It is best to use a tripod for the AEB shooting as the time to save each image file is longer and blurring caused by camera shake may occur. When the [M.

[SPOT] : Only the rectangular area in the centre of the LCD monitor will be metered for light. This is suitable when you want the subject in the centre correctly exposed, regardless of the back lighting. [CENTER] : Exposure will be calculated based on an average of the available light in the image area. However, the calculation will be biased towards the centre of the image area. This is suitable for taking a picture of small objects like a flower or insects. If the subject is not the centre of the focus area, do not use the spot metering as this may result in an exposure error. In this circumstance, it is better to use exposure compensation.

Exposure compensation menu is available in the Program and DUAL IS, Movie mode. - AUTO : The camera’s sensitivity is automatically changed by variables such as lighting value or subject brightness. - 80, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200 : You can increase the shutter speed while the same amount of light is present, by increasing the ISO sensitivity. However, the image may be saturated in high luminance. The higher the ISO value, the greater is the camera’s sensitivity to light; therefore it has a greater capacity for taking pictures in darker conditions. However, the noise level in the image will increase as the ISO value increases, making the image appear coarse. ■ Compensating Exposure 1. Press the exposure compensation menu button and the exposure compensation menu bar will appear as shown. 2. Touch the button and slide your finger to select the exposure value. 3. Press the exposure compensation menu button again. The value you set will be saved and the Exposure Compensation setup mode will close. A negative exposure compensation value reduces the exposure.
