Change the ISO speed. Use the built-in flash.
To match the subject and ambient lighting level, you can change the
ISO speed (p.132) or use the built-in flash (p.176). In the <d>
mode, the built-in flash will not fire automatically. Therefore, press
the <I> (flash) button to raise the built-in flash when indoors or
shooting in low light.
Change the program using Program shift.
After pressing the shutter button halfway, turn the <6> dial to
change the shutter speed and aperture setting combination
(program). Program shift is canceled automatically after the picture
is taken. Program shift is not possible with flash.
If the “30"” shutter speed and the lowest f/number
blink, it indicates underexposure. Increase the ISO
speed or use flash.
If the “4000” shutter speed and the highest f/number
blink, it indicates overexposure. Decrease the ISO
Differences Between <d> and <A> (Scene Intelligent Auto)
In the <A> mode, many functions, such as the AF operation and metering
mode, are set automatically to prevent spoiled shots. The functions you can
set are limited. With <d> mode, only the shutter speed and aperture are set
automatically. You can freely set the AF operation, metering mode, and
other functions (p.370).
