Image Sensor
Home Screen
Depending on different shooting conditions, dust may appear
in photos because the image sensor is exposed to the
external environment. This problem is normal, and the
exposure to dust occurs in everyday use of the camera. You
can remove dust from the sensor by operating the sensor
cleaning function.
The Home screen is the starting point for using your camera.
It provides a wealth of information about the camera’s status
and options, as well as providing access to applications.
If dust remains after cleaning the sensor, contact a service
centre. Do not insert the blower into the mounting opening of
the lens.

EV (Brightness)
ISO (Sensitivity)

The ISO sensitivity value represents the sensitivity of the
camera to light.
The higher the ISO sensitivity, the more sensitive the camera
is to light. Consequently, by selecting a higher ISO sensitivity,
you can take photos in dim or dark places at faster shutter
speeds. However, this may increase electronic noise and
result in a grainy photo.

can appear on photos of a high ISO sensitivity. (p. 95)
WB (Light Source)
The white balance represents the light source that influences
on the color of a photo.
The color of a photo depends on the type and quality of the
light source. If you want the color of your photo to be
realistic, select an appropriate lighting condition to calibrate
the white balance, or adjust the color temperature manually.
You can also adjust color for the preset light sources so that
the colors of the photo match the actual scene under mixed
lighting conditions.
Touch

➔ WB (light source), and select
an option.
• Auto: Use automatic settings depending on the lighting
conditions.
• Daylight: Use this for sunny days. This option results in photos
closest to the natural colors of the scene.
• Cloudy: Use this for cloudy days or in shadows. Photos taken
on cloudy days tend to be more bluish than on sunny days. This
option offsets that effect.
• Fluorescent W: Use this under a daylight fluorescent lamp,
especially for white fluorescent lighting.
• Fluorescent NW: Use this under a daylight fluorescent lamp,
especially for white fluorescent lighting with very white hues.
• Fluorescent D: Use this under a daylight fluorescent lamp,
especially for white fluorescent lighting with slightly bluish hues.
• Tungsten: Use this under incandescent bulbs or halogen
lamps. Incandescent tungsten bulbs tend to have a reddish
hue. This option offsets that effect.

• Spot: The camera calculates the amount of light in the centre.
When you take a photo in conditions where there is a strong
backlight behind a subject, the camera adjusts the exposure to
shoot a subject correctly.
• Centre-weighted: The camera calculates a broader area than
the camera does in spot mode. It sums up the amount of light
in the centre portion of the shot (60–80 %) and that of the rest
of the shot (20–40 %).
Metering
The metering mode refers to the method the camera
measures the quantity of light. The camera measures the
amount of light in a scene, and in many of its modes, uses
the measurement to adjust various settings. For example, if a
subject looks darker than its actual color, the camera takes
an overexposed photo of it. If a subject looks lighter than its
actual color, the camera takes an underexposed photo of it.
Touch
➔
➔ Metering, and select an option.
• Multi: The camera calculates the amount of light in multiple
areas. When light is sufficient or insufficient, the camera
adjusts the exposure by averaging the overall brightness of the
scene. This mode is suitable for general photos.

• Burst shot (10 fps) / Burst shot (15 fps) / Burst shot (30
fps): Use this to take 30 photos continuously when you press
the Shutter button once.
• AE BKT: Use the auto exposure bracketing option to take three
consecutive photos with different exposure values (one a step
lighter, the original, and one a step darker). Use a tripod to
prevent blurry photos. You can adjust the interval range in
Bracket set.
58
• WB BKT: Use the white balance bracketing option to take three
consecutive photos with different white balance settings (the
original and two more with different white balance settings).
The original photo is taken when you press the Shutter button.
The other two are automatically adjusted to the white balance
you have set. You can adjust the interval range in Bracket set.
Notes/Tips
• Saving photos may take longer depending on the memory card’s
capacity and performance when taking photos continuously.
• Using a tripod is recommended when taking photos continuously.

fires when the subject or background is dark.
• Auto + Red-eye: Use this to automatically use the flash and
reduce red-eyes.

• 1st Curtain: Use this to fire the flash immediately after the
shutter opens. The camera takes a photo of a subject earlier in
an action sequence clearly.

• 2nd Curtain: Use this to fire the flash just before the shutter
closes. The camera takes a photo of a subject later in an action
sequence clearly.

Warning! Keep the flash retracted when not in use to avoid
damage.
• Fill in: Use this to always use the flash.
Forcing the flash to open may cause damage to
the camera.
• Fill in + Red-eye: Use this to always use the flash and reduce

Use only Samsung-approved flashes. Using
incompatible flashes may damage your camera.
Notes/Tips
• There is an interval between two bursts of the flash. Do not move
until the flash fires a second time.
• If you select Off, the flash does not fire even when an external
flash is attached.
• If light from the flash is reflected, or if a substantial amount of
dust is in the air, tiny spots may appear in the photo.
• If you attach an intensity-adjustable external flash to the camera,
the intensity settings of the flash will be applied.
• If the subject is too close when you use the flash, some light may
be blocked, resulting in a dark photo. Ensure that the subject is
within the recommended range, which varies by lenses.
• When a lens hood is attached, the light from the flash can be
blocked by the hood. Remove the hood to use the flash.

• Continuous AF: Use this to capture fast moving subjects.
When you half-press the Shutter button, the camera continues
to focus. Once the focus area is fixed on the subject, the
subject is always in focus even when moving.
• Manual focus: Use this to manually focus on a subject by
rotating the focus ring on the lens. MF assist helps you achieve
a focus easily. While you are rotating the focus ring, the focus
area is magnified. When you use Focus peaking, the color you
selected appears on the focused subject.

AF Area
Use this option to change the positions of the focus area.
Generally, cameras focus on the nearest subject. When there
are a lot of subjects, however, unwanted subjects can be in
focus. To prevent unwanted subjects from being in focus,
change the focus area so that a desired subject is in focus.
You can get a clearer and sharper photo by selecting an
appropriate focus area.

• Centre AF: Use this to focus on the centre of the frame.
• Multi AF: Use this to focus on multiple areas. The photo is
divided into two or more areas, and the camera obtains focus
points of each area and displays a green rectangle in places
where focus is set correctly. This option is recommended for
scenery photos.
• Face Detection: Use this to focus on human faces
preferentially. This option is recommended for shooting a group
of people. This feature may not be effective in the following
conditions:
– The subject is too far from the camera.
– The lighting is too bright or too dark.
– The subject is not facing the device.
62
– The subject is wearing sunglasses or a mask.
– The subject’s facial expression changes drastically.
– The subject is backlit, or the lighting conditions are unstable.
• Tracking AF: Use this to track and automatically focus on your
subject, even when the subject is moving or when you change
the shooting composition. Tracking a subject may fail in the
following conditions:
– The subject is too small.
– The subject moves excessively.
– The subject is backlit or you are shooting in a dark place.
– Colors or patterns on the subject and the background are
the same.
– The subject includes horizontal patterns, such as blinds.
– The camera shakes excessively.
– If the camera fails to track the subject, the focus area will
be reset.
– If the camera fails to focus, the focus frame will change to red
