      Using Manual Exposure

      When the [Movie exposure] is set to [Manual], you can manually set the ISO speed, shutter speed, and aperture for movie shooting. Using manual exposure to shoot movies is for advanced users.

      Shutter speedTo set the shutter speed, turn the <Main Dial>. The settable shutter speeds depend on the frame rate.

       : 1/4000 sec. - 1/60 sec.

       : 1/4000 sec. - 1/30 sec.
      ApertureTo set the aperture, hold down the <  > button and turn the <Main Dial>.
      ISO speedPress the <  > button and use either <Main Dial> or <Cross Keys> to select the ISO speed.
      Auto ISO setting: ISO 100 - 6400
      Manual ISO setting: ISO 100 - 6400


      • If you use a lens whose aperture changes while you zoom, you should not zoom while shooting a movie. Zooming while shooting a movie may record changes in the exposure.
      • If you shoot a movie under fluorescent lighting, the movie image might flicker.


      • With Auto ISO, the correct movie exposure will usually be obtained even if the light level changes.
      • When shooting a movie of a moving subject, a shutter speed of 1/30 sec. to 1/125 sec. is recommended. The faster the shutter speed, the less smooth the subject's movement will look.
      • Changing the aperture during movie shooting is not recommended since variations in the exposure, due to the drive of the lens aperture, will be recorded.
