Touching the point you want to set as the basis for the exposure

The exposure will be automatically set based on the brightness of a point you touch on the monitor.
You can fine-tune the brightness by sliding the brightness adjustment bar that appears on the monitor after touching it.
If you slide the brightness adjustment bar to the right, the overall image will brighten; if you slide it to the left, the overall image will darken.

Touch the (touch AE cancel) icon or press the center of the control wheel to cancel the touch AE function.
