Panasonic DMC-GH1 with 14-140mm lens

This helps take the guesswork out of the camera setting process and helps users ensure that every photo they capture comes out exactly as they envisioned.Minimize

Focus points can be assigned automatically using one of three different AF modes or manually.Minimize
