The following settings can be adjusted using touch controls:

Tap the exposure indicator to adjust exposure compensation and tap OK to exit when adjustments are complete.
03. Shoot.

Tap the monitor to focus on the selected subject and shoot, or press the shutter-release button halfway to focus and all the way down to take photographs. Use the movie-record button to shoot movies. Movies are recorded at 1080/30p.

Moving the monitor out of the selfportrait position ends self-portrait mode.
