Beep On/Off

Turn the beep speaker on or off.

  • If [On] is selected for [Beep on/off], beeps sound when:

    • the self-timer counts down,

    • interval-timer photography, time-lapse movie recording, or focus shift ends,

    • the camera focuses in photo mode (note that this does not apply if AF-C is selected for focus mode or if [Release] is selected for Custom Setting a2 [AF-S priority selection]),

    • touch controls are used, or

    • the shutter-release button is pressed with a write-protected SD memory card inserted in the camera.

  • Select [Off (touch controls only)] to disable the beep for touch controls while enabling it for other purposes.

  • When [On] is selected for [Silent photography] in the photo shooting menu, a beep will not sound when the camera focuses or while the self-timer is in operation, regardless of the settings selected for [Beep options].


Adjust beep volume.


Choose the pitch of the beep from [High] and [Low].
