keep the shutter button depressed.

• Zoom continuous shutter cannot be used in combination 

with any of the following features.

• Zoom continuous shutter is not available when the image 

size setting is 3:2 (3648 × 2432 pixels) or 16:9 (3648 × 

2048 pixels).

• When the image size setting is 10M (3648 × 2736 pixels) or 

5M (2560 × 1920 pixels), the size of the zoomed image 

produced by zoom continuous shutter is 3M (2048 × 1536 

pixels).

metering mode automatically switches to “Spot” (pages 

119, 130) and locates the Auto Focus area in the center of 

the Zoom Continuous Shutter selection boundary.

Continuous Shutter Precautions

• Starting a continuous shutter operation causes the exposure 

and focus settings to be fixed at the levels for the first image. 

The same settings are applied to all subsequent images.

• Continuous shutter cannot be used in combination with any of 

the following features.

until all recording is finished.

• A continuous shutter operation may stop part way through if 

memory capacity runs low.

• The continuous shutter rate depends on the current image 

size and image quality settings.

• You can select the flash mode you want with normal-speed 

continuous shutter mode.

• With high-speed continuous shutter, the flash mode
