How M (Manual) mode works.


In this mode, you set the shutter speed and aperture for total exposure control. You can refer to the exposure level indicator in the viewfinder or use a handheld exposure meter to determine the shutter speed and aperture

Using the Camera Built-in Meter

While pressing the shooting mode selector turn the main dial to the left or right until "M" appears in the LCD panel

Release the shooting mode selector

Set the quick control dial switch to I

Turn the main dial to the desired shutter speed and the quick control dial to the desired aperture

  • The optionally available Command Back E1 is not equipped with a quick control dial. When using the Command Back E1, set the aperture by pressing the exposure compensation button and turning the main dial

Press the shutter button halfway to focus the subject. "M" and the exposure values are displayed in the viewfinder. The exposure level indicator at the right of the viewfinder shows how far the current exposure setting is from the exposure value metered by the camera

Set the shutter speed and aperture value as desired while watching the exposure level display then press the shutter button completely to take the picture
