Frame rates can be selected from 60fps, 50fps, 30fps, 25fps and 24fps for Full HD movies, supporting worldwide motion picture formats. It is also possible to change the settings of aperture, shutter speed, and exposure compensation while shooting a movie. Just as with still images, program, aperture priority, shutter priority and manual modes can be selected, as well as film simulation modes. Various expressions can be enjoyed such as a documentary style with Classic Chrome.
When light levels change dramatically, such as moving from outdoors to indoors, you can keep shooting.
