Shooting Tips
If the subject is far away, increase the ISO speed (p.79). By increasing the ISO speed, you can extend the flash range. In bright light, decrease the ISO speed. If the exposure setting in the viewfinder blinks, decrease the ISO speed. Detach the lens hood and keep at least 1 meter/3.3 feet away from the subject. If the lens has a hood attached or you are too close to the subject, the bottom of the picture might look dark due to the obstructed flash. For important shots, check the image on the LCD monitor to make sure the flash exposure looks natural (not dark at the bottom).

3 Red-eye Reduction
Using the red-eye reduction lamp before taking a flash picture can reduce red eye. Red-eye reduction will work in any shooting mode except <7>, <3>, <5>, or <k>. Under the [1] tab, select [Red-eye reduc.], then press <0>. Select [Enable], then press <0>. For flash photography, when you press the shutter button halfway, the red-eye reduction lamp will light. Then when you press the shutter button completely, the picture will be taken.
The red-eye reduction feature is most effective when the subject looks at the red-eye reduction lamp, when the room is well lit, or when you are close to the subject. When you press the shutter button halfway, the scale display on the bottom of the viewfinder will shrink and turn off. For best results, take the picture after this scale display turns off. The effectiveness of red-eye reduction varies depending on the subject.

The first half of this chapter explains how to use the <s>, <f>, <a>, and <8> modes on the Mode Dial. All the functions explained in Chapter 3 can also be used in the <s>, <f>, and <a> modes. To see which functions can be used in each shooting mode, see page 268. The M mark shown on the right of the page title indicates that the function is available only in Creative Zone modes (p.22).

s: Action Shots

Shooting Tips
To freeze the action or moving subject. Use a fast shutter speed such as 1/4000 sec. to 1/500 sec. To blur a running child or animal giving the impression of fast movement. Use a medium shutter speed such as 1/250 sec. to 1/30 sec. Follow the moving subject through the viewfinder and press the shutter button to take the picture. If you use a telephoto lens, hold it steady to prevent camera shake. How to blur a flowing river or water fountain. Use a slow shutter speed of 1/30 sec. or slower. Use a tripod to prevent hand-held camera shake. Set the shutter speed so that the aperture display does not blink. If you press the shutter button halfway and change the shutter speed while the aperture is displayed, the aperture display will also change to maintain the same exposure (amount of light reaching the image sensor). If you exceed the adjustable aperture range, the aperture display will blink to indicate that the standard exposure cannot be obtained. If the exposure will be too dark, the maximum aperture (smallest number) will blink. If this happens, turn the <6> dial to the left to set a slower shutter speed or increase the ISO speed. If the exposure will be too bright, the minimum aperture (highest number) will blink. If this happens, turn the <6> dial to the right to set a faster shutter speed or decrease the ISO speed.

D Using the Built-in Flash
To obtain a correct flash exposure, the flash output will be set automatically (autoflash exposure) to match the automatically-set aperture. The flash sync speed can be set from 1/200 sec. to 30 sec.

95

f: Changing the Depth of Field
To blur the background or to make everything near and far look sharp, set the Mode Dial to <f> (Aperture-priority AE) to adjust the depth of field (range of acceptable focus).
* <f> stands for Aperture value which is the size of the diaphragm hole inside the lens.

Under low light.f: Changing the Depth of Field Shooting Tips When using an aperture with a high f/number. the shutter speed display will also change to maintain the same exposure (amount of light reaching the image sensor).

If this happens. A higher aperture f/number will make the shutter speed slower.) shutter speed display will blink. the “4000” (1/4000 sec.

Grainy B/W Makes the image grainy and black and white. By adjusting the contrast, you can change the black-and-white effect. Soft focus Gives the image a soft look. By adjusting the blur, you can change the degree of softness. Fish-eye effect Gives the effect of a fish-eye lens. The image will have a barrel-type distortion. Depending on the level of this filter effect, the area trimmed along the periphery of the image changes. Also, since this filter effect will magnify the image center, the apparent resolution at the center may degrade depending on the number of recorded pixels. So in step 4, set the filter effect while checking the resulting image. Toy camera effect Gives a color cast typical of toy cameras and darkens the image’s fours corners. By adjusting the color tone, you can change the color cast. Miniature effect Creates a diorama effect. You can change where the image looks sharp.
