Record Screens & Menus

iAuto makes the GH4 as easy to use as the simplest of point-n-shoot cameras. In this mode, the only thing you have to do is compose your images and the camera will do the rest. This advanced mode chooses all of your camera settings, including the correct scene mode, if one should apply. This provides the best results to those who do not have a photography background.

Program is another automatic shooting mode in which the camera gives you a little more control over the final outcome of the images. Some of the settings like ISO, WB and exposure compensation give the user some creative freedom while the camera still handles the exposure work. Pressing the DISP. button on the back of the camera allows you to change the amount of information that is shown on the LCD screen.

Manual mode gives complete control of the camera to photographer. All settings, including manual focus if you would like, are at the users control. Great EVF/LCD features like focus peaking and focus magnification make it easy to manual focus accurately.

The quick menu allows for the quick changing of common shooting settings while using the LCD. This menu is quick and easy when making changes during a shoot, and the touch screen makes it even easier to make your selections.

Three buttons across the top of the camera give you access to the WB, ISO and exposure compensation settings at any time while shooting. These menus will show up on the LCD or the EVF and change via the command dial.
