Sensitivity
Sensitivity is a measure of how sensitive the camera re-
acts to light. With Auto (default setting), ISO sensitiv-
ity automatically increases at low brightness. Setting
ISO sensitivity at a high level is effective in preventing
blur when Speedlight is disabled in dark settings or making the subject appear
brighter. However, the image may contain “noise” or become “grainy.”
Select from the following five levels and press 
.
Noise Reduction
When raising sensitivity, “noise” in the form of randomly-spaced, brightly colored pix-
els may appear in pictures. In this case, noise in pictures taken at slow shutter speeds
will be reduced automatically when Noise reduction (
95) is On.
Auto
Unless the setting is Auto, a selected ISO value is dis-
played in the monitor whenever sensitivity is raised. An
 icon will appear at Auto setting when the camera has
automatically changed sensitivity.
Press MENU button in 
 (auto shooting) mode to
select Sensitivity (
74), and then press 
.
