Program AE is the automatic exposure mode and is enabled when the aperture ring and
shutter speed dial are set on the (A)uto position. The camera selects the best
combination of aperture and shutter speed for a proper exposure. When you half-press the
shutter a dial icon will appear, you can now "Shift" the aperture
to another value by using the Command Dial.
Aperture-priority mode is enabled by setting the aperture ring on anything other than the (A)uto position. Rotate the Command Dial to select the desired aperture value and the camera picks the proper shutter speed.
We have the realtime histogram display enabled. Icons across the top indicate
"A"perture exposure mode, flash is enabled, macro focus mode enabled, ISO sensitivity
is set to 100, the image size is 2560x1920, quality is Super Fine, battery is full,
there's space for 101 more pictures at this resolution and quality.
Shutter-speed priority mode is enabled by setting the shutter speed dial on any
position other than (A)uto. The shutter speed dial has separate positions for 1/4 to
1/2000 seconds, the "2-8s" position gives you access to the 1/2 to 8 second long shutter
speeds which are selected
by rotating the Command Dial.
Manual mode is enabled when both the aperture ring and shutter speed dial are
on other than the (A)uto position. You can adjust both values as desired.
A metering scale is displayed so you can properly adjust the exposure value.
