Setting the Aperture
The aperture adjusts the amount of light entering through the lens.
When you set the aperture, the camera automatically selects a
shutter speed to match the brightness.
Selecting a lower aperture value (opening the aperture) allows you
to blur the background and create a beautiful portrait.
A higher aperture value (closing it) brings the entire range from
foreground to background into focus. The larger the aperture value,
the greater the range of the image brought into clear focus.
Shooting Mode
Use the W or X button to select the aperture
value, then shoot.
zIf the shutter speed is shown in red, the image is
underexposed (insufficient light) or overexposed (too much
light). Adjust the aperture value using the W or X button
until the shutter speed display turns to white.
zSome aperture values cannot be selected depending on
the zoom position.
In this mode, the maximum shutter speed with synchronized
flash is 1/500 second
. The aperture value setting may
therefore be changed automatically to match the
synchronized flash speed even if its value was set previously.
