Slow Synchro

slower shutter speed to illuminate backgrounds out of lash range.

 

In [

] mode, mount the camera on a tripod or take other 

measures to keep it still and prevent camera shake. Additionally, 
you should set [IS Mode] to [Off] when using a tripod or other 
means to secure the camera (= 44).

subject does not move until the shutter sound is inished playing.

If a blinking [

] icon is displayed when you press the shutter 

button halfway in camera-shake inducing, low-light conditions, 
mount the camera on a tripod or take other measures to keep it 
still.
