The Panasonic FZ50's user interface is straightforward and should present a short learning curve if you read through the included manual. Although there are a lot of features here, so I'd imagine that novice users could spend a couple of hours learning them. Experienced digicam users should be able to come up to speed on the major functions in under an hour though. I generally prefer to see external access to as many exposure controls as possible, and the DMC-FZ50 does provide a fair amount of control without resorting to the LCD menu system. The camera's Four-Way Arrow pad controls a wide variety of functions independently of the LCD menu, though the menu itself is straightforward.

I generally prefer to see external access to as many exposure controls as possible, and the DMC-FZ50 does provide a fair amount of control without resorting to the LCD menu system.
The camera's Four-Way Arrow pad controls a wide variety of functions independently of the LCD menu, though the menu itself is straightforward. As noted earlier, I also found the Lumix FZ50's menu system unusually fast to navigate. Record Mode Display: In any record mode, the LCD display shows either the image area with information, image with information and live histogram, Out of Frame display, alignment grid, and image with no information modes.
Pressing the Display button cycles through the available displays. When the information display is active, it reports battery life, resolution, and image quality settings, the number of available images, the specific Record mode, orientation, and a handful of exposure settings including the predicted aperture and shutter speed. In Out of Frame display mode, the image is shrunk slightly and slid toward the upper left corner, with the information display arranged in an area to the right and bottom sides.
Playback Mode Display: Playback mode also offers three display modes, including the image only, the image with information, and the image with expanded information and a histogram.
A Highlight option is available through the Setup menu, which flashes any overexposed areas of the frame often more useful than a histogram. You can also display nine, 16, or 25 thumbnail images at a time with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50's index display mode, or zoom in by up to 8x on captured images to check fine details, focus, or framing. Auto Record Mode: Marked with a red camera icon and an "A" on the Mode dial, this mode puts the camera in control of all exposure decisions, leaving the user in charge of zoom, resolution, and flash.
Playback Mode: The traditional triangle within a rectangle marks this mode on the Mode dial. Here, you can review captured images and movie files. Program mode places the camera in control of shutter speed and lens aperture, while you maintain control over everything else i. In this mode, you maintain control over all other exposure variables. All other exposure settings are available. Manual: Manual exposure mode provides complete control over all exposure settings, including shutter speed and lens aperture.
The maximum shutter time is extended to 60 seconds, and a capital "M" indicates this mode on the Mode dial. Custom: In this position on the Mode dial, you select your own custom settings to suit the picture-taking conditions from among the registered patterns you have saved as custom settings ahead of time.
You can register as many as three custom presets. Movie: A film strip icon indicates this mode on the Mode dial. In Movie mode, you can record moving images with sound, at either 30 or 10 frames per second, at x or x pixels. Recording times are limited by memory card capacity and frame rate.
Record Menu: In just about any Record mode, the Menu button accesses the following exposure options some options are not available in all modes :. If turned off, pressing the Menu button when in either scene mode calls up this page. For each Scene mode option, you can press the left arrow button to receive a brief description of the mode. Playback Menu: This three-page menu is only available in the Review mode. It lets you erase, protect, and rotate captured images or movies; or set up images for printing on a DPOF compatible device.
