Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera ?

Changed setting and don't know the sign any longer

\015 Hi, I tried to change settings in my camera and now there is a sign in the upper left hand corner of the display I don't understand: it is a read square with a P inside... what does this mean for my pictures and my recordings?Also I am trying to change the setting that I record motion pictures with the highest quality, how do I do this? \015

Answers :

Hi there
\015\012the square with the p in it is telling you the camera is in auto focus mode (it is selected by the mode ring on the top of the camera)
\015\012there is a switch on the left side of the lens body which should be set to AF
\015\012the camera is now in point and shoot mode which is the best setting unless you know what you are doing with all the manual settings.
\015\012to select movie mode turn the mode dial to the movie clip icon
\015\012press the menu button and use the directional arrows to select the 30 fps option
\015\012this is the highest setting
\015\012it will give you about 30 mins recording time with a 1 gig card.
\015\012hope this helps
