Record Screens & Menus

For beginners or anyone that just wants to 'point-n-shoot' there's the iA (Intelligent Auto) exposure mode. The camera sets almost everything for you.


Program mode is very similar to Normal mode on the previous Panasonic models. It gives you control over more settings than IA mode. ISO, Flash, Exposure and White balance are a few of the controls that you will have in this mode.


When the shutter is half-pressed and the auto focus is achieved, the AF target brackets in the center turn green (red if AF fails) and a focus confirmation 'green dot' is displayed. The shutter speed and aperture will also be displayed.
