* Sound will not be recorded with Miniature Effect in Creative Control Mode and approximately 1/10 of the time period is recorded. (If you record for 10 minutes, the resulting motion picture recording will be approximately 1 minute long.)
In the iA Mode*1, the camera does all the work, leaving you free to compose your shot and capture the moment. You just press, aim and shoot. Once you've selected the iA Mode, the detection and correction functions go to work to give you beautiful photos and videos with maximum ease. In addition, the iA Plus Mode enables you to adjust defocusing area, exposure compensation and white balance by just moving the slider with your finger.
The range of defocus can be adjusted to match your needs.
You can adjust the exposure compensation accurately and easily.
You can adjust the white balance from warm red to cool blue.
The POWER O.I.S. and MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) that's built into Micro Four Thirds lenses detect and compensate for blurring caused by hand-shake. So, you can get sharp, clear shots every time you shoot.
The Face Recognition function remembers faces that have been registered in the camera and provides the faces with optimal focus and exposure.
The Face Detection function detects faces anywhere in the frame and automatically chooses the optimal focus and exposure. The Face Detection also features the Digital Red-eye Correction (Red-eye Removal)*5.
Once you focus on your subject, the AF Tracking automatically and continuously tracks it and keeps it in focus and proper exposure.
The Intelligent ISO Control function detects subject movement and automatically adjusts the ISO setting and shutter speed to best suit the movement and light conditions.
The Intelligent Scene Selector senses the ambient conditions and automatically selects one of Scene Modes: Photo (Scenery, Portrait, Macro*6, Night Portrait*7, Night Scenery or Sunset), Video (Scenery, Portrait, Macro or Low Light).*8
Once the subject is touched, the camera judges the optimal settings and automatically switches to the appropriate shooting mode.
The Intelligent D-range Control offers natural looking by optimizing the exposure for each part of an image, preventing blocked shadows and blown highlights and helping ensure that gradation and details are reproduced beautifully including the blue color of the sky.
Apart from the uniform enhancement of sharpness, the innovative technology Intelligent Resolution precisely performs signal processing pixel by pixel in the most effective way according to the area. As a result, images are naturally clear and crisp.
*1 Some functions in the iA Mode will not be available depending on the lens that is mounted. The applicable iA Mode functions vary with photos and videos. *2 When using a lens equipped with the POWER O.I.S. *3 When using a lens equipped with the MEGA O.I.S., turn on the O.I.S. switch before using. *4 Turn the Face Recognition item ON and register the person with full-face portrait on the shooting menu in advance. Recognition performance varies greatly depending on shooting conditions, i.e., according to factors such as angles, facial expression and lighting, so operation under all conditions cannot be guaranteed. Because the camera searches for faces that are similar to registered faces, there are cases where the faces are not correctly recognized when the registered image and the shooting image vary much. When facial characteristics are similar, particularly between parents and their children or brothers and sisters, the camera may not distinguish the faces. *5 The Digital Red-eye Correction must be turned ON in the menu prior to use. *6 The focal range varies depending on the lens. *7 In the iA Mode, the Night Portrait is not identified when the flash is turned off. *8 With some subject and shooting conditions, it is just not possible to judge the best shooting details. When this happens, it is recommended that you shoot with the Scene Mode that best suits your purpose.
