ISO sensitivity represents the sensitivity to 
light in values. If you set the ISO sensitivity 
higher, the camera becomes more suitable 
for recording in dark places.
• When [AUTO] is selected, the ISO 
sensitivity automatically increases to a 
maximum of [ISO200] (or [ISO400] when 
the flash is activated) depending on the 
brightness.
• In simple mode [
], motion picture mode 
[
] or scene mode, ISO sensitivity is 
fixed to [AUTO]. (In [NIGHT SCENERY] 
(P59), [SOFT SKIN] (P61) and [STARRY 
SKY] (P63) in scene mode, it is fixed to 
[ISO80].)
• To avoid picture noise, we recommend 
decreasing the ISO sensitivity or setting 
[PICT.ADJ.] to [NATURAL]. (P76)
The aspect ratio is the horizontal to vertical 
ratio of a picture.
You can select from three aspect ratios.
• The ends of the recorded pictures may be 
cut at printing. Check the picture in 
advance. (P109)

Aspect Ratio 
[ASPECT RATIO]
Normal ratio.
The screen becomes slight oblong 
in shape. Pictures are taken using 
the 3:2 aspect ratio, the same as 
for 35 mm film.
The picture is horizontally long. 
This is suited for landscapes and 
other subjects where you prefer a 
wide view. This is also suited for 
playing back on wide-screen TVs 
and high-definition TVs.
