BASIC RECORDING OPERATION
Place the subject within the focus frame. The subject must be within the focus range of the lens. If using a zoom lens, change the focal length to frame the subject.
The viewfinder focus signal indicates the status of the autofocus system. Focusing time can be longer with macro or telephoto lenses, or in low light conditions.
Press the shutter release button partway down to activate the autofocus and autoexposure systems (1). The viewfinder focus signal (A) confirms focus and the spot or local AF area (B) is illuminated briefly to indicate the point of focus. If the focus signal blinks, repeat the procedure. The shutter speed (C) and aperture (D) used for the exposure are displayed in the viewfinder and on the monitor.
Focus locked. Focus is confirmed (Continuous AF - p. 52). Indicator blinks - cannot focus. The shutter is locked. Focusing (Continuous AF). The shutter is locked. When the camera cannot focus, the subject may be too close or a special focusing situation may be preventing the system from focusing. Use focus lock with an object at the same distance as the main subject, focus the camera manually (p. 52), or raise the flash to use the AF illuminator (p. 97). Autofocus priority and shutter-release priority can be specified in section 1 of the custom menu (p. 94).
SPECIAL FOCUSING SITUATIONS 2
Press the shutter-release button all the way down (2) to take the picture. Press the shutter-release button gently so as not to the shake the camera during the exposure. The recorded image is displayed while the image is being saved. Press the shutter-release button partway down to cancel the playback. For more on instant playback see page 77. The access lamp (E) glows indicating the image data is being written to the memory card. Never remove a card while data is being transferred. The camera may not be able to focus in certain situations. Use focus lock or manual focus.
The subject is composed of repeating vertical lines.
The subject in the focus frame is low in contrast.
Frame the exposure target in the viewfinder depending on the metering mode in use (p. 50). Press and hold the AE lock button (1) to lock the exposure; the shutter speed and aperture are displayed and the AEL indicator is displayed in the viewfinder and on the monitor. Release the button to cancel the lock.
+2.5EV +3.5EV 3.0EV
The arrow indicates the metered area is 0.5Ev more (+) or less () than the greatest value on the scale in comparison to the locked exposure.
While holding the AEL button, place the subject in the focus frame and press the shutter-release button partway down to focus (2). Press the shutter-release button down all the way to take the picture. The exposure remains locked after the picture is taken if the AEL button is not released. While the exposure is locked, the camera meter is still active. The viewfinder and monitor Ev scale shows the difference between the locked exposure and the current light level measured with the meter. Spot metering is used.
The blinking arrow indicates the metered area is 1.0Ev or more greater (+) or less () than the greatest value on the scale in comparison to the locked exposure.
ABOUT SLOW SYNC.
When using flash, pressing the AEL button activates the slow-sync. function in program, full-auto program, and aperture priority. Slow sync. balances the ambient light exposure with the flash exposure so the background is recorded with the subject. When the AEL button is pressed and held, the ambient light exposure is determined and the flash exposure is based on the locked aperture setting. The use of a tripod is recommended with slow-sync. exposures.
When the Ev scale indicates 0, the locked exposure shown in the shutter-speed and aperture displays is the same as the exposure determined by the spot-metering area.
EXPOSURE AND FLASH COMPENSATION 2 1
The ambient light and flash exposure can be adjusted before the image is captured to make the final picture lighter or darker. To compensate the ambient exposure, press the Dial Lock Release and turn the exposure-compensation dial to the appropriate position (1). To adjust the flash exposure, turn the flash-compensation dial using the lever at the front of the camera (2).
Sometimes the cameras exposure meter is deceived by high key or low key subjects. For example, a very bright scene, such as a snowy landscape or a white sandy beach, can appear too dark in the captured image. Before taking the picture, adjusting the exposure by +1 or +2 Ev results in an image with normal tonal values.
Calculated camera exposure The exposure compensation dial has two scales. The orange scale adjusts the exposure up to 2.0Ev in 0.3Ev steps. The silver scale allows the exposure to be adjusted up to 3.0Ev in 0.5Ev steps. The position of the dial also affects the exposure modes. See Camera Notes on page 41. When using 0.3Ev increments, the maximum and minimum lens apertures may not be displayed correctly. When setting exposure or flash compensation, the change in Ev is shown on the monitor. Flash compensation is only displayed when the flash is raised. The viewfinder Ev scale only shows changes to exposure compensation; 2.5Ev is shown with an arrow, 3.0Ev is indicated with a blinking arrow. After the setting is made, the shutter-speed and aperture displays indicate the actual exposure.

If file number memory is active and the memory card is changed, the first file saved to the new card will have a number one greater than the last file saved on the previous card if the new card does not contain an image with a greater file number. If it does, the file number of the new image will be one greater than the greatest on the card.
All recorded images are stored in folders on the memory card. Folder names come in two formats: standard and date. Standard folders have an eight character name. The initial folder is named 100KM023. The first three digits are the folders serial number, which increases by one each time a new folder is created. The next two letters refer to Konica Minolta, and the last three numbers indicate the camera used; 023 indicates a Dynax 7D. A date folder name also starts with the three digit serial number and is followed by one register for the year, two register for the month, and two registers for the day: 100YMMDD. The folder 10141023 was created in 2004 on October 23rd. With the date folder format selected, when an image is recorded a new folder with the days date is created. All images recorded that day are placed in that (Date) folder. Images recorded on a different day are placed in a new folder with the corresponding date. When a new folder is created, the serial number in the image-file name is reset to 0001 unless file number memory is active. For more information on folder organization and file names, see page 126.

Because the CCD is smaller than a 35mm frame, the angle of view obtained at a specific focal length is not the same. To calculate the approximate equivalent 35mm focal length, multiply the focal length in use by 1.5. A 100mm lens gives about the same angle of view as a 150mm lens on a 35mm camera. 116
The following flash units are compatible with this camera: Program Flash 2500(D) Program Flash 3600HS(D) Program Flash 5600HS(D) Macro Ring Flash 1200 with Macro Flash Controller Macro Twin Flash 2400 with Macro Flash Controller The 5400HS, 5400xi, and 5200i can be used with this camera with manual flash control only. The 4000AF, using the Flash Adapter FS-1100, can also be used with manual flash control.
USING THE FLASH SYNC TERMINAL
The flash sync terminal allows a studio or location flash system to be connected to the camera with a standard PC cord. The terminal is compatible with both center positive (normal polarity) and center negative (positive polarity) flash units with a voltage of 400V or lower.
Open the flash sync. terminal cover from the right; the cover is attached to the body to prevent loss. Securely connect the flashs PC cord to the flash sync terminal. Confirm the flash is off before connecting the cable to prevent it from firing.
HIGH-SPEED SYNC. (HSS)
This camera is compatible with the High Speed Sync. (HSS) function in the Program Flash 5600HS(D) and 3600HS(D). This allows the camera to use its full range of shutter speeds up to 1/4000 second. Attach a compatible flash unit to the camera. Set the flash unit to HSS. When the shutter speed exceeds the camera sync. speed, the High Speed Sync. indicator (H) is displayed on the monitor and in the viewfinder. HSS cannot be used with the 2-second self-timer drive mode nor the rear sync. flash mode. High Speed Sync. indicator
To ensure correct exposures, use the manual exposure mode (p. 44). Set the shutter speed equal to or slower than the flash duration; refer to the flash units instruction manual. If the built-in flash is raised when another flash unit is connected to the flash sync terminal, both flash units will fire. However, the cameras automatic flash control systems will not provide correct exposures. To use the built-in flash as a fill light, use manual flash control (p. 75). The use of custom white balance is recommended (p. 61). When calibrating the camera, use the shutter speed and aperture settings require for the final exposure. A gray card may have to be used as the reference target with powerful flash units to reduce the intensity of the illumination. If custom white balance is not practical, use the preset daylight or flash setting or set the color temperature (p. 62) to the flash units color temperature if known; auto white balance is not recommended. To make an exposure bracket, press and hold the AEL button during the bracketing series. The cameras flash-compensation dial has no affect on the flash exposure.
