When using a Lumix camera, capture stills during video recording by pressing the shutter button before recording is started. For instance, to capture a silky vail water shot, set the camera to Shutter Priority on the mode dial, and set the ISO to the lowest setting available.
For good results,it is best to use a tripod for panorama shooting when using a Lumix camera. If a tripod is not available, practice turning from the waist at a steady speed. Half press the shutter button to focus, and then fully press and hold while panning in the direction of the shot. To take three timed shots, set the camera up in the Record Mode menu.
