Basic troubleshooting
You can get answers to common questions. Solve problems easily by setting shooting options.
The subject's eyes
appear red.
This is caused by a reflection from the camera flash.
• Set the flash option to
Red-eye or
Red-eye Fix. (p. 49)
Red-eye Fix in the edit menu. (p. 79)
• If the photo has already been taken, select
Photos have dust
spots.
Dust particles floating in the air may be captured in photos when using the flash.
• Turn off the flash or avoid taking photos in a dusty place.
• Set ISO speed options. (p. 50)
Photos are blurred.
Blurring can occur if may be caused if you capture photos in low light conditions or hold the camera
incorrectly. Use the DIS function or half-press [Shutter] to ensure the subject is focused. (p. 29)
Photos are blurred
when shooting at
night.
As the camera tries to let in more light, the shutter speed slows.
This can make it difficult to steady the camera and may result in camera shake.
• Select
Night in the
mode. (p. 36)
• Turn on the flash. (p. 49)
• Set ISO speed options. (p. 50)
• Use a tripod to prevent your camera from shaking.
Subjects come out
too dark because of
backlighting.
When the light source is behind the subject or when there is a high contrast between
the light and dark areas, the subject may come out shaded.
• Avoid shooting with the sun behind your subject.
• Select
Backlight in the
mode. (p. 34)
• Set the flash option to Fill in. (p. 49)
• Set the Auto Contrast Balance (ACB) option. (p. 59)
• Adjust the exposure. (p. 58)

Glossary
ACB (Auto Contrast Balance)
DCF (Design rule for Camera File system)
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.
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)
Depth of field
This feature automatically captures several images at different
exposures to help you capture a properly-exposed image.
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.
AF (Auto Focus)
A system that automatically focuses the camera lens on the subject.
Your camera uses the contrast to focus automatically.
Digital zoom
A feature that artificially increases the amount of zoom available with
zoom lens (optical zoom). When using the digital zoom, the image
quality will deteriorate as the magnification increases.
Aperture
The aperture controls the amount of light that reaches the camera’s
sensor.
DPOF (Digital Print Order Format)
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.
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.
EV (Exposure Value)
All the combinations of the camera’s shutter speed and lens aperture
that result in the same exposure.
Composition
Composition in photography means arranging objects in a photo.
Usually, abiding by the rule of thirds leads to a good composition.
Appendixes
113
Glossary
EV Compensation
Image sensor
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.
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).
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).
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.
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.
Flash
A speed light that helps to create adequate exposure in low-light
conditions.
LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)
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.
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).
Appendixes
114
Glossary
Metering
Shutter speed
The metering refers to the way in which the camera measures the
quantity of light to set the exposure.
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 pass 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.
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.
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)
Optical zoom
This is a general zoom which can enlarge images with a lens and does
not deteriorate quality of images.
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.
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.
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.
