  • If the shutter speed is set slower than 1/8 second in manual mode, a sound is heard both at the start of and end of shooting.

At this time, images are not saved if the power is turned off before shooting is complete.
  • When shooting in auto mode with the noise reduction or HDR rendering settings, fix the camera in place using a tripod when shooting to prevent camera shake.
