∫ Technique for Panorama Shot Mode Swivel the camera around its center when moving it in the recording direction. Hold the camera with both hands, taking care not to shake it. • When the focal length is long, such as when a telephoto lens is attached, move the camera slowly. • If the camera shakes too much, pictures may not be able to be recorded, or the recorded panorama picture may become narrower (smaller). • Move the camera towards the edge of the range you wish to record. (The edge of the range will not be recorded in the last frame) (P83) • If you change the facial expression or blink, the recorded picture may look unnatural. Try to stay still. Example:

• We recommend setting the zoom position to Wide when using Self Shot Mode. • Since the distance between the camera and subject is close when you take panorama pictures in Self Shot Mode, the edges of the pictures may appear significantly distorted. 70 3. Recording Modes Taking pictures of yourself in 4K Photo Mode You can switch to 4K Photo Mode and take pictures of yourself. Touch [ ]. OFF No Effect • For information about the recording methods for 4K Photo OFF Mode, refer to steps 2 through 3 of “Recording 4K Photos” OFF (P119, 120). • When recording 4K photos, the angle of view is narrower. • For 4K photo recording, only [Filter Select] can be set. • Be careful not to look at the light from the flash and the AF Assist Lamp directly. • When the [Soft Skin] is set – If you set the effect level to [2] or higher, display of the recording screen will be delayed more than usual and the screen will look as if frames are dropping. – Since recording with this effect requires extra image processing, if you take a picture with the effect level set to [2] or higher, it takes some time until you can take the next picture. – The smoothing effect is applied to the part that has a similar tone to the complexion of a subject, as well. – This mode may not be effective under insufficient lighting. • If you set [Defocusing] to [ ] (On), display of the recording screen will be delayed more than ON usual and the screen will look as if frames are dropping. In addition, since recording with [Defocusing] requires extra image-processing time, it takes some time until you can take the next picture. 71 3.
