Shutter at Shutdown



Shutter at Shutdown

You can set whether to leave the shutter open or close it when the camera's power switch is set to Power off.

  1. Select [Set-up: Shutter at shutdown].

  2. Select an option.

    • Close: Closed

      Closes the shutter. Normally set to closed, to prevent dust from adhering to the sensor when you switch lenses.

    • Open: Open

      Leaves the shutter open. This keeps camera quieter when the power switch is set to Power on or Power off. Useful when you want to shoot quietly.


  • Regardless of the setting, the shutter remains as it is when auto power off is activated.
