Specifying ISO Sensitivity

129

ADVANCED SETTINGS

ISO sensitivity is a value that expresses sensitivity to light. A 

larger value indicates higher sensitivity, which is better for 

shooting when available lighting is dim. If you want to use faster 

shutter speeds, you should use a higher ISO sensitivity value. 

Under certain conditions, a fast shutter speed in combination 

with a high ISO sensitivity setting can cause digital noise, which 

makes an image appear rough. For clean, good-quality images, 

use the lowest possible ISO sensitivity setting.

1.

In the REC mode, press [SET].

2.

Use [

S] and [T] to select the sixth option from 

the top in the operation panel (ISO Sensitivity).

3.

Use [

W] and [X] to select the setting you want 

and then press [SET].

IMPORTANT!

• Using flash with high ISO sensitivity can cause problems 

with subjects that close to the camera.

• “Auto” ISO sensitivity always is used for movies, regardless 

of the current ISO sensitivity setting.

• You can use the key customization feature to configure the 

[

W] and [X] buttons so they control the ISO sensitivity 

setting (page 138).
