Screen Display in Dark Shooting Conditions

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



Dark Bright

zThe graph that appears in Detailed Information Display (p. 188) 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 (p. 43) will light or blink depending on the camera’s status.
