It of course has PASM modes, but you have to choose which one you use from the menu. The camera has one control-dial and one control-rocker. So you can adjust your aperture and shutter-speed separately. All current Panasonics have only one control-dial. Only the E-P3 offer two.

A multinav with a control-wheel, a control-rocker and a FN button.

A single control dial

just doesn't appeal to me at all.

Shoot 20 images and let the camera pick the best ones?
No PSAM dial?

I like being in control. That's a lot of the fun of photography.

I don't want the camera making command decisions any more
than I want my word processor writing paragraphs for me.

However, there is nothing wrong with trying it, so go for it.
eBay will be there when you need them again!


I see this camera as a new wave of P&S cameras for more sophisticated point-shooters who also like to have NIKON label on the camera with all attached barging about number of AF points and shots per second.
