Record Screens & Menus

The GH2 does not output video while in record mode, therefore we had to photograph the LCD for some of the below screen captures.

iAuto mode allows anyone to pick up the camera and start shooting. The camera will take care of all of the settings. All the operator needs to do is pick a subject, zoom and shoot.





panasonic_gh2_rec_program.JPGProgram mode is also automatic, but allows the user to set a wide variety of camera settings before shooting. This allows for more creativity while still allowing the camera to create the exposure.





panasonic_gh2_rec_manual.JPGManual mode, along with Aperture and Shutter priority modes, give the user full control over the entire camera. Here the user must set all of the exposure settings. This gives you the most control and creativity and allows even the most advanced users to have fun with this camera.





panasonic_gh2_rec_quick_menu_anim.gifThe Q.Menu button allows you to scroll through the settings that are shown on the LCD screen, giving you the opportunity to change any of them without entering a separate menu screen.





panasonic_gh2_rec_4way_anim.gifAs you would find on a compact camera, the 4-way controller also acts a set of shortcut buttons to popular camera settings. Pressing up takes you to the ISO settings, Right to the white balance settings and down and left are the #2 and #3 Fn buttons that can be programmed for any setting you choose.
