Screen Display in Dark Conditions during Shooting

The display automatically brightens when shooting in dark conditions, 
allowing you to check the composition (Night Display function). However, the 
brightness of the image on the screen, and the brightness of the actual image 
recorded may be different. Screen noise may appear and the movement of 
the subject may appear somewhat jagged on the screen. This has no effect 
on the recorded image.

Overexposure Warning during Playback

In “Detailed Information Display” 

(p. 44)

, overexposed areas of the image 

flash on the screen.

Histogram during Playback

The graph that appears in “Detailed 
Information Display” 

(p. 44)

 is called the 

histogram. The histogram shows the 
distribution of brightness in an image 
horizontally, and the amount of brightness 
vertically. When the graph approaches the 
right side, the image is bright, but when it 
approaches the left side, the image is dark, 
and in this way you can judge the exposure.

The Indicator on the back of the camera
