Cautions for both <6> (Night Portrait) and <F> (Handheld Night
During Live View shooting, it may be difficult to focus on dots of light
such as in a night scene. In such a case, set the lens’s focus mode
switch to <MF> and focus manually.
The Live View image displayed will not look exactly the same as the
actual image shot.
Cautions for <F> (Handheld Night Scene)
When shooting flash photography, if the subject is too close to the
camera, the picture may come out extremely bright (overexposure).
If you use flash to shoot a night scene with few lights, the shots may not
align correctly. This can result in a blurry picture.
If you use flash and the human subject is close to the background that is also
illuminated by the flash, the shots may not align correctly. This can result in a
blurry picture. Unnatural shadows and unsuitable colors may also appear.
External flash coverage:
• When using a Speedlite with automatic flash coverage setting, the zoom
position will be fixed to the wide end, regardless of the lens’s zoom position.
• If you have to set the flash coverage manually, set the light-emitting
unit (flash head) to the wide-angle end before shooting.
Cautions for <6> (Night Portrait)
During Live View shooting, it may be difficult to focus when the face of
the subject looks dark. In such a case, set the lens’s focus mode switch
to <MF> and focus manually.
Cautions for both <F> (Handheld Night Scene) and <G> (HDR
Compared to other shooting modes, the shooting range will be smaller.
1+73 or 1 cannot be selected. If 1+73 or 1 has been set,
73 will be set.
If you shoot a moving subject, the subject’s movement may leave
afterimages, or the surrounding area of the subject may become dark.
The image alignment may not function properly with repetitive patterns
(lattice, stripes, etc.), flat or single-tone images, or images significantly
misaligned due to camera shake.
It takes some time to record images to the card since they are merged
after shooting. During the processing of the images, “buSY” will be
displayed in the viewfinder and on the LCD panel, and you cannot take
another picture until the processing is completed.
If the shooting mode is set to <

>, direct printing is not possible.
