Set the desired options. (For a list of options, refer to page 45.) Extended functions 36 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. 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.

(without protrusions) Weight 200 g (7.025 oz.) (without battery and memory card) Appendixes 118 Glossary AEB (Auto Exposure Bracket) This feature automatically captures several images at different exposures to help you capture a properly-exposed image. 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). AF (Auto Focus) A system that automatically focuses the camera lens on the subject. Your camera uses the contrast to focus automatically. 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. 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. Composition Composition in photography means arranging objects in a photo. Usually, abiding by the rule of thirds leads to a good 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. 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. Appendixes 119 Glossary 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). 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. 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. H.264/MPEG-4 A high-compression video format established by international standard organizations ISO-IEC and ITU-T. This codec is capable of providing good video quality at low bit rates developed by the Joint Video Team (JVT). 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). Appendixes 120 Glossary 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. 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. Optical zoom This is a general zoom which can enlarge images with a lens and does not deteriorate quality of images. 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). 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. Appendixes 121 Glossary 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. 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.
