I need to reset the default settings on my new Panasonic…

Customer Question
I need to reset...

I need to reset the default settings on my new Panasonic Lumix camera, DMC ZS60. I somehow got stuck on video recordings and can't seem to get back to automatic settings for still pix. Can you help?

Technician's Assistant: How old is your Lumix?

I just got it last month.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Lumix?

I've tried the menu and don't see what settings I need to change. I have hit several changes and I may have compounded the problem.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Not for now, except how to download the camera manual.
