When you are not sure which mode will provide the best shooting results, when a sudden photo opportunity appears or when you do not have time to make manual settings, simply choose Intelligent Auto (iA) mode and let the Lumix camera do it all for you!
Intelligent Auto Mode Features
Depending on the Panasonic Lumix model, iA mode uses up to six bundled technologies working perfectly together to provide the best possible shooting results every time.
Face Recognition – Face Recognition registers your favourite friends and family members and will optimize the focus and exposure on your favourite persons. You also have the ability to playback photos by person, and add date, name, age along with adding descriptions to your photos.
AF Tracking – After selecting AF tracking, simply press the shutter button halfway or touch the LCD screen* to select who you would like to track. AF Tracking then follows the selected subject throughout the frame, keeping them in focus – an excellent way to follow children, pets and other moving objects!
*Only applicable to Lumix digital still cameras: DMC-FX500, DMC-FX550.
Intelligent Exposure – No more under or over exposed shots! Intelligent Exposure corrects the parts of the image that are too dark or too bright, so images come out as naturally as you see them.
Mega OIS – Gyrosensors detect hand-shake and the Optical Image Stabiliser lens shifts to compensate, helping prevent hand-shake blur. This system is completely optical – it does not affect the CCD or image processing – so you get sharp, clear images without deterioration. Choose from two modes:
Mode 1 remains ON at all times for continuous compensation.
Mode 2 starts working as soon as the shutter is released to achieve a greater effect.
POWER O.I.S^ - Introducing the new POWER OIS feature, which helps prevent handshake even when using high-powered zoom. The new POWER O.I.S clearly captures subjects in the ultra-telephoto range, which used to require a tripod. With twice the shake suppression capability of previous models, the new POWER O.I.S is particularly effective when shooting at night with a low shutter speed for example, whilst also greatly improving the quality of shots taken indoors where a flash cannot be used or where a photographer doesn’t want to use a flash because it would spoil the mood.
^Power OIS only applicable to Lumix digital cameras: DMC-FZ38, DMC-ZX1, DMC-FX60 and DMC-FP8
Intelligent ISO Control – With Intelligent ISO Control, your Lumix camera can adjust the ISO sensitivity if the subject moves as the shot is taken thereby preventing blurriness of the photo.
Intelligent Scene Selector – The Intelligent Scene Selector automatically selects whichever of five scene modes - Macro, Portrait, Scenery, Night Portrait, and Night Scenery – best suits your shooting situation.
