Batteries that cannot be used • The battery remaining indicator does not Manganese batteries display the correct information when using Lithium batteries alkaline batteries.

Image size and quality

You can choose image size (number of Short description of the image size pixels) and image quality (compression ratio) based on the kind of images you want to shoot. The image size is shown by the number of pixels (dots) (horizontal × vertical), which compose an image. For example, a 5M (2592×1944) size image indicates that there are 2592 pixels horizontally and 1944 pixels vertically. The larger the number of pixels, the larger the image size. You can select from Fine (high quality) or Standard image quality. Each uses a different compression ratio. When you select Fine, the image quality improves as the image size increases, but the amount of recorded data also increases and the number of images that can be recorded on a “Memory Stick” decreases. Refer to the table on the right and choose the image size and image quality appropriate to the kind of images you want to shoot. The following illustration shows a brief image using the maximum image size and the minimum one. 2592 Display size: 5M Image size: 5M 640 2592 pixels × 1944 pixels=5,038,848 pixels Display size: VGA (E-Mail) Image size: VGA 640 pixels × 480 pixels=307,200 pixels

Selecting the

Multi-pattern metering (No

Spot metering ( )

Metering is performed for only a part of the subject. This lets you shoot images that are not too dark even when the subject is backlit, or adjust the exposure to the subject when there is strong contrast between the subject and the background., filename[Z:\#Camera#\DSCW1\3091535111DSCW1U2\08adv.fm] masterpage:Right Advanced still image shooting d When selecting [Spot] in step Mode dial 3, position the spot metering Adjusting color tones cross hair on one point of the — White Balance subject you want to shoot.
