Record Screens & Menus

For any unfamiliar shooting situations or anyone that ins't an experienced shooter, iAuto is there for you. Just like the iAuto featured on all of their point-n-shoot models, the PEN-F will take care of all of your shooting settings for you. From the standard settings to the most appropriate scene mode for your current shooting situation, the camera does all the work you so you only have to worry about framing the shot.

Program is another automatic shooting mode that gives more control to the user. While the camera takes care of the shutter speed and aperture, most of the other settings are at your disposal. This offers some creative options while still getting a correct exposure. This is also great with the color mode dial on the front, allowing you to get creative that way from the Program menu. Pressing the info button allows you to change the amount of information that is shown on the LCD screen, including a histogram or electronic level.

Manual mode, along with Aperture and Shutter priority modes, give the user complete control over the camera. Thanks to the command dials on the body of the camera, changing these settings is fast and easy, and after using the camera for a bit can be done without having to look or even take the camera away from your eye.

The color dial on the front of the camera takes you to these different color modes for the camera. Included in this is a Black & White shooting mode and the Olympus Art Filters: Pop-Art 1, Pop-Art 2, Soft Focus, Pale & Lite Color 1, Pale & Lite Color 2, Light Tone, Grainy Film 1, Grainy Film 2, Pin Hole 1, Pin Hole 2, Pin Hole 3, Diorama 1, Diorama 2, Cross Process 1, Cross Process 2, Gentle Sepia, Dramatic Tone 1, Dramatic Tone 2, Key Line 1, Key Line 2, Watercolor 1, Watercolor 2, Vintage 1, Vintage 2, Vintage 3, Partial Color 1, Partial Color 2, Partial Color 3.

Pressing the OK button in shooting mode takes you to the quick menu shown above. From here you can quickly change all of the camera settings that you see above. Having them all in one place, only a click away makes it easy to change settings while shooting without slowing down.

The 4-way controller allows you to navigate and make your selections from the camera menus. It also acts a shortcut to the AF selection, WB/ISO, Flash and Burst/Self-Timer options to keep you shooting and out of the camera menus.
