Exposure Modes

I have a thing for vintage lenses because they're just too beautiful. However, the only way you could use them is in Manual Mode.

There's one hidden mode called the Manual with Auto ISO. It also has an amazing Auto ISO Mode that works on M, A, S and P Modes. Unfortunately, this feature is buried deep in the Menu Settings. Once you turn this feature on and set the parameters, all you need to do is worry about setting the shutter speed or aperture, and the camera will automatically adjust the ISO for you.

Another hidden mode that you might overlook is the Multiple Exposure Mode. This is buried deep in the Menu and it only works when you're using the viewfinder (won't work on Live View). You can take up to 3 multiple exposures and it looks better with Auto Gain set to ON.

Auto Gain set to off, edited for better contrast.

Auto Gain set to on. Photo as is from the camera.



It's nice to think that having more features gives us the feeling of getting more bang for our bucks. The other modes are swell but these are fluff that I rarely resort to. Just to be fair, I also took some samples with the other modes.

With Night Vision (under Effects), you can take distinguishable images
with little light in the dark, albeit being black and white only.

This is the Pet Mode (under Effects), which captures fast moving pets with flash.

Portrait Mode is for taking selfies. I find that the images tend to border on warm yellow
and need to balance the color like seen here.

Auto Mode (without flash).

Auto Mode (with flash).



My suggestion for the Video Mode button is that it would be placed beside the LCD so I could easily toggle that mode.

My second complaint is that you need to dig deep into the Menu to change simple movie settings like resolution, frame rate or microphone level. (Menu button > Shooting Menu > Movie Settings)
