I have a DMC-FZ50

What do these different modes of AF signify?
• 1 point
• 1 point high-speed
• 3 point
• 3 point high-speed
• 9 point
• Spot

In EC it says +/- 2 EV 1/3 EV steps, what does this 1/3rd signify?

In metering modes it says…

Intelligent Multiple , centre weighted, and spot. What are these? I think they have to do with the light meter, but how they function?

In image parameters, it says we can adjust the NR level to high. Should I use it for better quality. Or is it better to use RAW format, and then Photoshop to do it. (I read somewhere that the Venus III engine used by Panasonic is a little too harsh with NR).

My cam also shows it has an orientation sensor, I haven't seen it in action ever though!!!


You can check http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/panasonicfz50/ for these details.

Also is are most of these implemented as software in the camera? Things like White Adjustment, colour effects (B&W, Sepia, Cool, Warm) etc.

Regards,
