You can set overexposed areas (areas that are too bright and where there are no shades 

of gray) to flash on the screen when the [Auto Review] function is activated or during 

playback.

 

Settings: [ON] / [OFF]

 

To reduce overexposed areas, record a picture by setting negative exposure 

compensation using the histogram display and so on as a reference. (The right edge 

of the histogram shows the overexposed portion.)

 

This feature is disabled during Multi Playback, Calendar Playback, Playback Zoom or 

motion picture playback.

 

If the subject is too close to the camera when recording using flash, overexposure 

may occur.
