Sharpening
Control the sharpness of outlines. Select [A] to adjust 
sharpening automatically according to the type of 
scene, or choose from values between [0] (no 
sharpening) and [9] (the higher the value, the greater 
the sharpening).
Contrast
Select [A] to adjust contrast automatically according to 
the type of scene, or choose from values between [–3] 
and [+3] (choose lower values to prevent highlights in 
portrait subjects from being “washed out” in direct 
sunlight, higher values to preserve detail in misty 
landscapes and other low-contrast subjects).
Brightness
Choose [–1] for reduced brightness, [+1] for enhanced 
brightness. Does not affect exposure.
