This mode allows you to take pictures with 
a candle-lit atmosphere.
∫ Technique for Candle light mode
• If you make the most of the candle light, 
you can take successful pictures without 
using the flash.
• Since the shutter speed becomes slower, 
we recommend using a tripod and the 
self-timer (P39) for taking pictures.
• The focus range becomes the same as 
macro mode. [5 cm (0.16 feet) (Wide)/

This takes pictures of a baby with a healthy 
complexion. When you use the flash, the 
light from it is weaker than usual.
You can set two different birthdays by using 
[BABY1] and [BABY2]. You can display the 
set age when playing back the pictures and 
stamp the age on the recorded pictures 
with [DATE STAMP] (P72).
• The age can also be printed on each 
picture by using the software [LUMIX 
Simple Viewer] or 
[PHOTOfunSTUDIO-viewer-] in the 
CD-ROM (supplied). (For information 
about printing, refer to the separate 
operating instructions for PC connection.)

time are displayed for about 5 seconds on 
the bottom of the screen.
• The age display style differs depending on 
the language setting in the recording 
mode.

the clock and birthday settings.
• If the camera is set to [WITHOUT AGE], 
the age is not recorded even if the time 
and birthday are set. This means the age 
cannot be displayed even if camera is set 
to [WITH AGE] after taking the pictures.
• The birthday setting can be reset with 
[RESET]. (P20)
• Digital zoom cannot be used.
