Notes on using your camera
This camera has two modes for shooting: the Live View mode using the LCD monitor, and the viewfinder mode using the viewfinder (OVF). There may be differences between an image recorded in Live View mode and an image recorded in viewfinder mode, such as exposure, white balance, or Drange optimizer, depending on the method used of metering or the exposure mode. In Live View mode, the recorded image may be different from the image you monitored with the LCD monitor. The difference becomes larger in the following or other cases: When firing the flash. When shooting a low-intensity subject, such as night scenery. When the difference of the intensity of a subject is too large.

Performing wireless flash shooting
With an external wireless flash (sold separately), you can shoot with the flash without a cord when the external flash is not attached to the camera. By changing the position of the flash, you can shoot an image with a three dimensional feel by highlighting the contrast of light and shadow on the subject. For the actual steps of shooting, refer to the operating instructions of the flash.
1 Attach the wireless flash to the accessory shoe and turn both
the camera and the flash on.
on the control button t (Wireless)
3 Remove the wireless flash from the accessory shoe.
Notes The camera cannot perform a pre-flash test of the wireless flash. Confirm that the flash fires properly by releasing the shutter. The camera cannot carry out the wireless lighting ratio control. Turn off the wireless flash mode after wireless flash shooting. If the built-in flash is used while the wireless flash mode is still active, inaccurate flash exposures will result. Change the channel of the external flash when another photographer is using a wireless flash nearby and his/her built-in flash light causes your external flash to fire. To change the channel of the external flash, refer to the operating instructions supplied with it.
Adjusting the brightness of the image (Exposure, Flash compensation, Metering)
Using brightness compensation for the entire image (Exposure compensation)
Except for recording mode M, the exposure is automatically selected (Automatic exposure). Based on the exposure acquired by the automatic exposure, you can perform exposure compensation by shifting the exposure to either the + side or the side, depending on your preference. You can make the entire image brighter by shifting to the + side. The entire image becomes darker when you shift it to the side.
Adjust in the direction Base exposure Adjust in the + direction
1 Press the
The exposure compensation screen is displayed in the viewfinder mode.
2 Adjust the exposure with the
Toward + (over): Brightens an image. Toward (under): Darkens an image.
Adjust the compensation level by checking the recorded image. Using bracket shooting, you can shoot multiple images with the exposure shifted to the plus or minus sides (page 101).
Note This item cannot be set when the exposure mode is set to AUTO or Scene Selection.
To shoot while checking the screen using the histogram The histogram displays the luminance distribution that shows how many pixels of a particular brightness exist in the picture. To display the histogram, press DISP on the control button (pages 39 and 104). The exposure compensation will change the histogram accordingly. The right illustration is an example. Shooting with the exposure compensation on the positive side brightens the whole picture, making the entire histogram shift to the bright side (right side). If the exposure compensation is applied on the negative side, the histogram will shift to the other side. Both ends of the histogram show a highkey or low-key portion. It is impossible to restore these area with a computer later. Adjust the exposure if necessary and shoot again.
Number of pixels Dark Light
Notes The histogram displayed in Live View mode does not indicate the final recorded image. It indicates the condition of the image just monitored on the LCD monitor. The histogram will differ based on aperture setting, etc. The histogram differs between shooting and playback in the following situations: When firing the flash. When the subject has low intensity, such as night scenery.
To cancel the self-timer Press on the control button.
Note When you shoot images using the viewfinder, use the eyepiece cover (page 28).
Shooting images with the exposure shifted (Exposure bracket)
Bracket shooting allows you to shoot several images, each with different degrees of exposure. This camera is equipped with an auto bracket function. Specify the value of deviation (steps) from the base exposure, and the camera shoots while automatically shifting the exposure. You can choose an image that has the brightness you like after shooting is finished. When the flash is fired, flash bracket shooting is used to shift the amount of flash light. To shoot, press the shutter button shot by shot.

In bracket shooting, the same number of indices as the number of recordable images is displayed on the EV scale. However, in flash bracket shooting, the indices are not displayed in the viewfinder. When the bracket shooting starts, the indices that indicate already recorded images start to disappear one by one.
In viewfinder mode, if the shutter button is pressed halfway down and released, br 1 appears. Fbr 1 appears for the flash bracket. When flash bracket shooting starts, it indicates what number the next frame is, for instance, Fbr 2, Fbr 3.
