With the DMC-FZ48, you can enjoy full-manual control in both photo and video recording. In the Creative Video Mode, the shutter speed and aperture can be adjusted, just like you do with photographs. The Creative Control allows you to set artistic effect more intuitively. In Miniature Effect Mode, the peripherals are defocused while saturation and contrast is emphasized to look the picture like a diorama. With Photo Style, finer control in contrast, sharpness, saturation and noise reduction is available.
