Question
The colors in my pictures look different from the actual colors of my subject.
What can I do? [White Balance (WB)]

Answer:

  Select a white balance (WB) setting that is more appropriate for the lighting conditions.

When WB is set to the default, AUTO, the colors in pictures may differ from the subject's actual colors under the following lighting conditions:
-When the subject is in the shade on a sunny day
-When the subject is illuminated by both natural light and indoor lighting (e.g. near a window)
-When the light from the camera's flash does not reach a subject lit by indoor lighting

In cases like these, select the WB setting that is designed to capture accurate colors in the specific lighting conditions.
To select WB settings, the mode dial must be set to any shooting mode except AUTO. Turn the mode dial to other modes (e.g. to [P]).

The following table describes the available WB settings:
AUTO The white balance is adjusted automatically for natural color, regardless of the light source.
PRESET This provides six white balance settings optimized for common light sources.
  Sunny day
(Sunny day)
For shooting under bright sunlight.
Cloudy day
(Cloudy day)
For shooting under a cloudy sky.
Tungsten
(Tungsten light)
For shooting under tungsten lighting.
Fluorescent lamp 1
(Fluorescent lamp 1)
For shooting under a daylight fluorescent lamp. (This type of lamp is mainly used in homes.)
Fluorescent lamp 2
(Fluorescent lamp 2)
For shooting under a neutral white fluorescent lamp. (This type of lamp is mainly used in desk lamps.)
Fluorescent lamp 3
(Fluorescent lamp 3)
For shooting under a cool white fluorescent lamp. (This type of lamp is mainly used in offices.)
One-touch WB
(One-touch WB)
For more precise white balance setting than AUTO or PRESET can provide. This mode selects and retains in memory the optimum white balance settings for the shooting conditions.

The "white balance compensation" function enables minor adjustments in color tones.
In this function, the white balance can be adjusted seven steps in both [BLUE] and [RED] directions.

Question
I want to take still pictures in succession. How do I enable sequential shooting?
[Drive (Single shooting, High-Speed Sequential shooting, BKT)]

Answer:

 

You can select the sequential shooting setting in the [DRIVE] menu.

In the sequential shooting mode, you can take several shots in rapid succession by depressing fully the shutter button.
It is ideal for capturing the exact moment you want.
Using the bracket (BKT) option, the camera automatically takes sequential pictures at different exposures.
This setting is useful when you are not sure what exposure value is appropriate.

There are two ways to set the DRIVE mode:

1. Selecting from the FUNC menu:
Press the [FUNC] button.
Choose single-frame
shooting (drive mode), and then select the appropriate mode from single-frame
shooting (single-frame shooting), Sequential Shooting (sequential shooting), High-Speed Sequential Shooting 1 (high-speed sequential shooting 1),
High-Speed Sequential Shooting 2 (high-speed sequential shooting 2), high-speed sequential shooting 2 with pre-capture (high-speed sequential shooting 2 with pre-capture), AF sequential shooting (AF sequential shooting) and BKT (bracket).*
To activate the setting, press the [FUNC] button again.
*The exposure interval and the number of shots for bracket shooting cannot be changed using single-frame
shooting in the FUNC menu. Change these settings using single-frame
shooting in CAMERA MENU.

2. Selecting from CAMERA MENU:
Press the [MENU] button, and then select CAMERA MENU.
In the DRIVE menu, select the appropriate mode from [single-frame
shooting] (single-frame shooting), [Sequential Shooting] (sequential shooting), [High-Speed Sequential Shooting 1] (high-speed sequential shooting 1),
[High-Speed Sequential Shooting 2] (high-speed sequential shooting 2), [AF sequential shooting] (AF sequential shooting) and BKT (bracket shooting).
*In High-Speed Sequential Shooting 2, you can select PRE-CAPTURE OFF or PRE-CAPTURE ON.
* The exposure interval and the number of shots can be adjusted in BKT.

Question
In which shooting situations should I change the ISO sensitivity?

Answer:

 

By default, the ISO sensitivity for the SP-590UZ is automatically set, ranging from ISO 64 to 6400.
This mode enables you to take crisp and clear pictures in different shooting situations.

With high ISO sensitivity and faster shutter speeds, you can capture sharp, blur-free images
in low-light situations and when the camera or your subject is moving.

You may see more noise or grain in your pictures when you use high ISO sensitivity.
If you use a lower ISO sensitivity, you can reduce the noise but the shutter speed will also become slower.
It is advised that you use a tripod so your camera remains steady when shooting.

ISO sensitivity can be changed as shown below:
AUTO The camera automatically adjusts the ISO sensitivity for the best image quality.
High ISO AUTO The camera automatically adjusts the ISO sensitivity to reduce blurring effects.
ISO fixed ISO 64/100/200/400/800/1600/3200*/6400*

*If set to ISO 3200 or more, image size is restricted to [5M] (2560X1920) or less.




Question

Question
What is Time-lapse shooting?

Answer:

 

Time-lapse shooting enables you to capture a subject over a period of time by setting picture-taking intervals.

If you set the number of shots (from 2 to 99 shots) and interval (from 1 to 99 min.), the camera will automatically take pictures using these settings. This function is useful for taking photos of a flower blooming or the sun rising.

After the first frame is saved to the internal memory or memory card, the camera will automatically enter the SLEEP mode. The camera will resume operation seven seconds before the next shot. The camera will automatically turn off once the preset number of shots have been taken.


Note:
  • Make sure your camera's battery is fully charged, or use the AC adapter.
  • Time-lapse shooting will be interrupted and the camera will resume normal operation if any of the following operations are performed while the camera is in SLEEP mode:
    - The battery cover or card cover is opened.
    - The camera is connected to a computer.
    - The shutter button or the arrow pad is pressed.

  • Button operation, mode dial and zoom operation are deactivated while shooting, including during the period of seven seconds before shooting.
  • If the internal memory, memory card or battery runs out during SLEEP mode, a warning will be displayed. The camera will cancel the time-lapse shooting and automatically turn off.




Question
Which type of memory card can I use? [ xD-Picture Card, microSD Card ]

Answer:
