appear red.
• Set the flash option to
Photos have dust
spots.
• Turn off the flash or avoid capturing photos in a dusty place.

Red-eye or
Red-eye Fix. (p. 57)
• If the photo has already been captured, select
Red-eye Fix in the edit menu. (p. 90)
If dust particles are present in the air, you may capture them in photos when you use the flash.
• Set ISO sensitivity options. (p. 59)
Photos are blurred.
Blurring can occur if you capture photos in low light conditions or hold the camera incorrectly.
Use the OIS function or half-press [Shutter] to ensure the subject is focused. (p. 32)
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 hold the

• Select
Night in s mode. (p. 37)
• 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)

About histograms
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.
