Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ7 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera too slow

I'm not sure what the problem is the problem but it takes forever to actually snap the picture. This is not our first digital camera and we have actually had other Lumix cameras but this one is SO slow. By the time the camera is done focusing, etc, our toddler is gone. We never get to take that quick candid photo because the camera takes too long to take the picture and the moment is gone. Help!!! I have no pictures of my baby smiling because she realizes we're taking a picture and runs away. Can I make this camera move faster?

We have this camera and it will turn on & zoom. The camera will not snap the picture. What could the problem be? We have changed the batteries without sucess The camera has hardly been used. Larry


The problem could be that you're not fully pressing the shutter button. Many people squeeze the button until something happens... that's the half press that causes the autofocus to operate etc. Because something happened, they don't continue to press hard enough to actually take the snap.

Of course it's also possible that the plunger on the shutter button is too short and isn't reaching the switch properly, but I've only seen that on a kids cheap camera where it was squeezed too hard with impatience because cheap cameras operate slowly.

Oh, and one more thing: are you squeezing the button for long enough? I don't know how slow this particular model is.

How to improve picture quality of Digital Camera


Slow down the shutter speed of your digital camera. Whenever you must take a photo in a low light environment decrease your shutter speed. It is virtually impossible to take a blurry digital photo with a an extremely slow shutter speed. Even if your digital camera has an automatic or semi-automatic mode, slowing down the shutter speed will still produce a better digital photo. <br /> Wait until your digital camera is completely focused. Most digital cameras will notify you that they are focus ready by a blinking light, on screen indicator or a noise. Confirm that your digital camera has locked onto your desired target before pressing the shutter release button. Some digital cameras may have trouble focusing on subjects easily. If this happens use an auto focus mode to produce a better digital photo. <br /> Prevent your digital camera from shaking. Shaky hands or sudden movement will definitely produce a blurry digital photo. When holding your digital camera, make sure the viewfinder is firmly pressed against your face before snapping a digital photo. If you do not have image stabilization on your digital camera, then think about investing in a tripod. This will allow you to steady your digital camera for the perfect shot. <br /> Make sure the digital image is definitely a blurry one and not just a soft image. On many occasions soft images are mistaken for blurry ones. Soft images occur often with digital cameras. When printing these images, the softness rarely shows through. You will be able to easily edit these photos by sharpening the details for a better printing experience. <br /> Take your time. Instead of rushing to take a digital photo, set aside enough time to shoot your image. Hurrying up will not produce an excellent digital photo. You don't need to be overwhelmingly slow when taking the photo, but try your best not to take a hasty one.

When I "click", it takes forever to actually take the picture


You must press the shutter button half-way to allow the camera to lock in the focus and then you can press it the rest of the way for an almost instant picture.

Time betwween taking picture and actual shutter actuation to slow


Push the button half-way and allow the camera to focus before pressing the rest of the way. By pre-focussing, you can wait for just the right moment before pressing the rest of the way.

Nikon D60 is working slow.


I would start with a freshly formatted memory card. Erasing images leaves folders and other unneeded data on the card which can slow the write speed down considerably. Secondly, make sure the front and rear elements of the lens are spotlessly clean. The auto focus works best (faster) if it can see the subject with perfect clarity.

Shutter Speed


Two things to try, 1) The release button is a two stage process. Pushing the release button 1/2 way allows the camera to focus on the subject. It needs a few milli-seconds to do this. A full depress releases the shutter, but it you don't allow the camera to focus, things get messed up.

2) Holding a camera of this type with outstretched arms is a sure way to get poor shots. I use my Fuji S5000 with the viewfinder rather than the LCD display for framing shots just like I was using an SLR/DSLR
