Record Screens & Menus

By

Please excuse the quality of our screens, the WG-2 does not include an A/V cable with the camera.

Green mode is simplest shooting mode that Pentax features on their cameras, and possibly the easiest to use mode on the market. The only thing you can do is point, zoom and shoot. The camera will take care of everything else. Even the camera menu is limited to the setup menu, all of the shooting menus have been hidden.

Auto mode is what most people are used to, allowing the camera to choose the correct scene mode and camera settings, all you have to do is point-n-shoot. Image quality and some other settings are also available to you.

Program mode offers the most control that you will get from the WG-2. Here things like White Balance and ISO settings are also up to. Remember that this is still an automatic shooting mode and the shutter speed and aperture will still be set for you.

One of the few cameras still on the market that does not have a dedicated video recording button, the WG-2 still relies on using a movie mode to record your videos.This means there is no confusion or pressing the wrong button, when you want a movie go to movie mode with nothing to get worried about.
