Scene Mode lets you select optimum settings quickly and easily to match your scene or subject, by simply turning a dial. The DMC-L10's new Advanced Scene Mode gives you even more detailed selections and settings for Portrait, Scenery, Macro, Sports, and Night Portrait modes. This makes it easy to get the photos you want.
The separate white balance button and easy-to-see LCD give you nine settings to choose from: Auto, Daylight, Cloudy, Shade, Halogen, Flash, and Color temperature settings, or 2 White Set modes. You can make fine color adjustments by using the arrow keys to navigate on a graph with two axes (amber to blue, and magenta to green) displayed on the menu screen. The Full-time Live View function lets you immediately confirm the color adjustment condition.
You can retrieve exposure compensation values and adjust them in the range of -2 to +2 EV, in 1/3 EV steps while checking the effect on the LCD.
The Multi Exposure function lets you take double or triple exposures in a single frame. For example, you can capture a single flower as three flowers in one photo, or you can make a child look like triplets.
The LUMIX DMC-L10 allows you to shoot while checking the image with Live View. After you've taken the first shot, it appears with a translucent effect, so you can use it to set up your second shot. The same for the third shot. The camera also automatically adjusts the gain to optimize the exposure. With Live View, you can compose images right inside the camera while visually ensuring that they are framed exactly the way you want them.

Selecting Full-time Live View lets you check vertical and horizontal alignment on the large, 2.5-inch screen as you shoot. With the DMC-L10's new Guideline 2, you can move the guidelines according to the subject's position. This is especially handy when taking photos of natural scenery or buildings. The histogram display makes it possible to check exposure and contrast in real-time. And full-time Live View lets you check the setting details before you shoot, for a perfect shot every time.
This lets you move the part that is enlarged by the MF Assist function to any area of the frame you want.
