P Auto Multi Program

In this mode, the camera automatically adjusts shutter speed and aperture according to a built-in program ( 78) for optimal exposure in most situations. This mode is recommended for snapshots and other situations in which you want to leave the camera in charge of shutter speed and aperture. Adjustments can be made using flexible program, exposure compensation ( 86), and auto exposure bracketing 87). Mode p is only available with CPU lenses.

To take photographs in auto multi program: A Rotate the mode dial to p.

Frame a photograph, focus, and shoot.

0 Flexible Program

In mode P, different combinations of shutter speed and aperture can be selected by rotating the main command dial ("flexible program"). All combinations produce the same exposure. While flexible program is in effect, a E3 icon appears in the control panel. To restore the default shutter speed and aperture, rotate the main command dial until the EJ icon is no longer displayed. Defaults can also be restored by turning the camera off, rotating the mode dial, raising or lowering the built-in Speedlight, performing a two-button reset (^ 111), or choosing another setting for Custom Setting 9 (EV step; gj 144).

Indicator

Description

H

Subject too bright. Use optional Neutral Density (ND) filter or lower sensitivity ( 46).

L o

Subject too dark. Raise sensitivity ( 46).

If the flash-ready indicator blinks in the viewfinder, the flash can be used for additional lighting. The flash-ready indicator will not be displayed if Off is selected for Custom Setting 20 (Flash sign).

Shutter speed

The maximum and minimum values for EV vary with sensitivity (ISO equivalency); the above graph assumes a sensitivity of ISO 200 equivalent. When matrix metering is used, values over 171/3 EV are reduced to 171/3 EV.
