Shutter Sound

Choose whether the camera makes a sound when the shutter is released. Selecting [OFF] disables the shutter-release sound.

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 video 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]), or

    • touch controls are used.

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


Adjust beep volume and the volume of the shutter-release sound.


Choose the pitch of the beep from [High] and [Low]. The pitch of the shutter sound cannot be changed.

Silent Mode

Selecting [ON] for [Silent mode] in the setup menu disables the shutter-release sound and beep speaker.

Overlapping beeps and/or shutter sounds may play as a single sound.
