3 Setting the Maximum ISO Speed for [
When you shoot at high ISO speeds, noise (such as dots of light and
banding) may become noticeable.
If you use a high ISO speed and flash to shoot a close subject,
overexposure may result.
When shooting in conditions that produce an extreme amount of noise,
such as a combination of high ISO speed, high temperature and long
exposure, images may not be recorded properly.
As “H” (equivalent to ISO 25600) is an expanded ISO speed setting,
noise (such as dots of light and banding) and irregular colors will be more
noticeable, and the resolution will be lower than usual.
As the maximum ISO speed that can be set differs between still photo
shooting and movie shooting (manual exposure), the ISO speed you set
may change when you switch from still photo shooting to movie shooting.
Even if you switch back to still photo shooting, the ISO speed will not
revert to the original setting. The maximum ISO speed that can be set
varies depending on the setting for [2: ISO expansion] under [54:
Custom Functions (C.Fn)].
• When [0: Off] is set: If you set ISO 12800 during still photo shooting
and then switch to movie shooting, ISO speed will be changed to ISO
• When [1: On] is set: If you set ISO 12800 or “H” (equivalent to ISO
25600) during still photo shooting and then switch to movie shooting,
ISO speed will be changed to “H” (equivalent to ISO 12800).
