You can add different effects by applying one of the filters both in the recording mode (Creative Control) and the playback mode (Creative Retouch).
This effect gives your photo a dramatic color look.
You can choose from 6 color types to get even more detailed image settings in both photo and video recording. In addition, the contrast, sharpness, saturation or noise reduction for each mode parameter can be customized in 5 steps and stored in memory.
The Panorama Shot Mode makes it is possible to shoot a 360-degree horizontal / vertical panoramic image with consequent shots taken by overlaying the previous picture.
The white balance bracket function shoots 3 consecutive photos with slight changes to the white balance setting of each photo in both the horizontal (amber to blue) and vertical (green to magenta) axes.
The Intelligent Handheld Night Shot in the iA Mode generates a beautiful night scenery with illumination by multi-layering the images shot consecutively. Bright, glamorous night scenery can be recorded without using a tripod.
The Handheld Night Shot Mode is also available in the Scene Mode.
The 3D Photo Mode* produces a 3D image in the camera. The image-processing method used by LUMIX records beautiful images with less distortion or visible image links.
* The picture size is fixed to 2-megapixel (16:9).
Take 20 panning shots and the camera selects the two most suitable images – one for the right eye and one for the left eye – to synthesize a 3D composite.
The 3D image can be played back on MPO-compatible equipment such as VIERA HDTVs and digital photo frames, or printed.
4 Aspect Ratios: In addition to 4:3, 3:2, and 16:9, you can shoot with a 1:1 aspect ratio. This unique square frame adds to your image expression possibilities.
Auto Retouch: The Auto Retouch function adjusts contrast and brightness to give different impression to the photo with just a press of a button. If the image was shot too dark, it can be clear and bright to look it nicer with this function.
