Record Screens & Menus

Panasonic's iAuto shooting mode is a fully automatic mode that does all of the work for you. All you have to do is point-n-shoot and the camera will take care of the rest. It will even choose the best scene mode for the current situation, if one is appropriate.

Program is another auto mode that puts some of the control into the hands of the photographer. While the exposure controls remain in the control of the camera, other settings (like ISO, WB, Metering, etc.) are at your disposal for some creative freedom. The DISP button on the back of the camera allows you to change the amount of information that is shown on the LCD screen or EVF.

Manual mode gives the user complete control over the camera for total creative freedom. This is very important in giving making the FZ2500 a fully functional camera that can be used by anyone, including experienced photographers. For those still learning, the FZ2500 also offers Shutter Speed and Aperture Priority modes.
