The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX580S digital camera features iA mode. In iA mode, you can simply "point out" your subject by touching it on the LCD. The camera does the rest, automatically selecting the shooting mode that gives the best results. You enjoy easy, intuitive shooting and capture beautiful images of the subject you want to shoot.
Just "point out" the subject by touching the LCD and the camera does the rest, adjusting the focus and exposure to capture a sharp, bright shot of your subject. Also, each time you indicate a face, the Face Recognition function activates and "remembers" it. Subsequently, any time that face appears within a shot you're framing, the camera adjusts the focus and exposure to capture it perfectly.
In Shutter-Priority AE, Aperture-Priority AE and Manual modes, just touch the slider bars by the LCD to set the shutter, aperture and exposure correction values. Just touch the slider bars to fine-adjust the white balance too. And you can reposition the vertical and horizontal guide lines easily and intuitively with a touch.
The Touch-View control feature lets you advance to the next image (or return to the previous one) by simply brushing a finger across the screen. Other convenient playback functions made possible by touch-panel operation include Multi-Playback, which lets you view thumbnails of up to 30 photos at once, Easy Search and Sort and Zoom Playback

Always in pocket to record things for work and other interests. Wider angle lens than normal is very useful for group photos and architectural, especially interiors. Intelligent auto shifts from one mode to another, saving time, but control is there. Not up to SLR abilities for medium distance and beyond.
