Enhanced functions

(1) It is now easier to switch shooting modes when shooting in My Settings Mode.

My Settings Mode enables the photographer to make the desired shooting settings in advance. This update enhances camera usability by making it possible to switch shooting modes without turning the mode dial when shooting in My Settings Mode.

(2) It is now easier to display enlarged images in playback mode.

For image playback mode, this update makes it possible to change the image magnification level using not only the Enlarged View button but also the up-down dial. In addition, it is also possible to keep the image enlarged when advancing to the next image using the ADJ lever. These functions are convenient to use when checking image content in playback.

(3) It is now possible to specify only the level sensor sound and beep sound even when operational sounds (such as start sound and shutter release sound) are turned off.

This expands the possibilities for shooting using the level sensor.

(4) It is now possible to specify whether the power button LED lamp should turn on.

The power button LED lamp normally turns on when the power is on, but it is now possible to switch to a setting where this lamp is always off.
