[Question] Details on the highlights display.
During playback, very bright areas in an image are highlighted and blinking on and off in the highlights display. This allows you to check some overexposed area for confirmation.
The area circled in red in the below picture (right) is the overexposed area.
The blinking area in the highlights display is the overexposed area, in which the bright portions of the subject are whitened out and all gradations of color shades are lost. The area without gradations will not be corrected or compensated after taking a picture.
In such a case, it is better taking a picture again, for example; with avoiding direct sunlight, and/or making the exposure compensation (to minus [-]). The exposure compensation option is located in the Shooting menu.
In order to show the highlights display, press the [DISP.] button repeatedly until it appears on the LCD monitor.
