Flexible Program
In exposure mode 
e, different combinations of 
shutter speed and aperture can be selected by 
rotating the main command dial (“flexible 
program”). Rotate the command dial to the right 
for large apertures (small f-numbers) that blur 
background details or fast shutter speeds that 
“freeze” motion. Rotate the command dial to the 
left for small apertures (large f-numbers) that 
increase depth of field or slow shutter speeds that 
blur motion. All combinations produce the same 
exposure. While flexible program is in effect, an 
asterisk (“*”) appears in the control panel. To 
restore default shutter speed and aperture 
settings, rotate the command dial until the 
asterisk is no longer displayed, choose another mode, or turn the camera 
off.
