* sound will not be recorded with miniature effect in creative control mode and approximately 1/10 of the time period is recorded.\
(If you record for 10 minutes, the resulting motion picture recording will be approximately 1 minute long.)\
\\Panasonic has developed the industry\'s first creative panorama functions. discover 12 filter effects that will take your panorama images to the next level with creative and dramatic results.\
\\For those looking to take on more creative control, the dmc-ts5 has easy-to-use manual controls. you can set the aperture to control the depth of field, and adjust the shutter speed to freeze moving subjects or create a motion blur that exaggerates the feeling of movement.\
\\In the ia (intelligent auto) mode, the camera does all the work, leaving you free to compose your shot and capture the moment. simply aim, press, and shoot. the detection and correction functions go to work to give you beautiful photos and videos*.\
