Adjust the auto ISO sensitivity control settings for photographs. Auto ISO sensitivity control automatically adjusts ISO sensitivity if optimal exposure cannot be achieved at the value selected by the user in modes P, S, A, and M.
|[ISO sensitivity]||The ISO sensitivity selected with the ISO sensitivity dial is displayed.|
|[Auto ISO sensitivity control]|
Highlight [On] and press J to enable auto ISO sensitivity control. If [Off] is selected, the ISO sensitivity will remain fixed at the value selected with the ISO sensitivity dial.
Choose the upper limit for auto ISO sensitivity control to prevent it being raised too high.
|[Maximum sensitivity with c]|
Choose the upper ISO sensitivity limit for photos taken using an optional flash unit.
|[Minimum shutter speed]|
Choose the shutter speed (1/4000 to 30 s) below which auto ISO sensitivity control will kick in to prevent underexposure in modes P and A. If [Auto] is selected, the camera will choose the minimum shutter speed based on lens focal length. For example, the camera will automatically choose faster minimum shutter speeds to prevent blur caused by camera shake when a long lens is attached.
- When auto ISO sensitivity control is enabled, the shooting display will show ISO AUTO. When sensitivity is altered from the value selected by the user, the ISO sensitivity will be shown in the displays.
