Taking Pictures with Set Shutter Speed 

(´: Shutter-priority AE)

When you want to take a sharp picture of a fast moving subject, set to a faster shutter 
speed. When you want to create a trail effect, set to a slower shutter speed.

Note

• Refer to P51 for the available aperture values and the shutter speed.
• Slide bar can be hidden (P51).
• Brightness of the LCD monitor may differ from the actual picture recorded. Confirm in playback 

mode.

• If the exposure is not adequate, the aperture value and the shutter speed turn in red when the 

shutter button is pressed halfway.

• We recommend using a tripod when the shutter speed is slow.

Slide the [REC]/[PLAYBACK] selector switch to [¦/!], and then 
press [MODE].
