Record Screens & Menus

iAuto is Panasonic's fully automatic shooting mode. Not only does it take care of all of the camera's basic settings, it also chooses the best scene mode for the situation, when appropriate, to assure that you get the best possible image with every shot.

Program is also a fully automatic shooting mode that gives you the ability to change many of the camera settings. This is an easy way to take a little control without knowing everything about photography. Pressing the DISP. button on the back allows you to change the amount of information that is shown on the LCD screen. You can choose between no info, enable grid lines, or display only video info.

Manual mode is for the more seasoned photographer, or anyone looking to learn a little more. With the ZS15, you have total control over the camera, allowing you to control every available setting, for complete creative control.
