Record Screens & Menus

iAuto is the easiest shooting mode you will find on the E-P5. Not only will the camera take care of all of the shooting settings in this mode, it will also choose the best scene mode for your current shooting situation. This provides you with the best possible picture with absolutely no worries about changing anything.

Program mode is another automatic shooting mode that gives the user more control over some of the shooting settings. While the shutter and aperture settings are still controlled by the camera, the others are available for you to change. This is a great way to learn more about your camera and photography in general.

Manual mode gives you complete control over the camera. This allows for total control and the most versatility. Aperture and Shutter Priority modes are also available.

The Live Guide view is available only in iAuto mode. This menu allows you to change certain aspects of an image with new, easy to understand menus. Making adjustments to these options will not only change your captured image, but you will see the changes on the LCD screen before you shoot.

Scene Modes:Portrait, e-Portrait, Landscape, Landscape+Portrait, Sport, Night Scene, Night+Portrait, Children, High Key, Low Key, DIS Mode, Macro, Nature Macro, Candle, Sunset, Documents, Panorama, Fireworks, Beach & Snow, (Conversion Lens Scenes: (Fisheye Effect, Wide-Angle, Macro)) and 3D.

Art Filters: Pop Art, Soft Focus, Pale & Light color, Light Tone, Grainy Film, Pin Hole, Diorama, Cross Process, Gentle Sepia, Dramatic Tone, Key Line, Watercolor and Art Filter BKT.

The frames or composite shooting mode gives you several options for different compositions that easily allow you to capture several pictures inside the different frames. With the touch screen it is very easy to select the current box just by touching it.
