Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18K Digital Camera

1 Answer

Panasonic FZ18 I can take great pics and view them on my camera but when I go to transfer them to my PC they are all messed up. I have tried to transfer them via usb and by using the memory card itslef. I even bought a different memory card and it still messes up. also tried to load into different pic programs with no luck.

    I tried using the internal memory and it still didn't work......



    I was able to reset the settings in the tools menu and that did work. Atleast for now.



    One thing I noticed when I tried to transfer the pics, they were coming up as .RAW at the end of the description. Instead of .JPG. If that helps anyone that actually knows what those mean. lol.

    Can you try something and report back? Try taking out your memory card, then take a picture using the internal memory and transfer that to the computer. If that works, then you likely have an issue with your memory card.

    Unfortunately, at least one other person experiencing this sort of problem with the FZ18 had to get a major repair done to fix the issue.

I do know what that means... :) Most programs don't deal with the information in RAW photos automatically--RAW Photos MUST be "developed" electronically in order to be seen "correctly." The Silkypix software that came with your camera is one software that will allow you to do this. Adobe Lightroom2 is another.

This camera allows you to shoot JPEG or RAW + JPEG
(The mode I recommend--despite it taking up large amounts of memory on your SDHC cards.) The reason I like this mode is you have the JPEG which provides you with instant gratification where you can get a pretty clear picture of what you got in the shot--but the RAW let's you do infinitely more with developing the image.

It's the best of Both worlds.

Of course you can shoot in High Quality JPEG alone if you just want to point and shoot and only make minor corrections to your shots but you lose significant pixel and other electronic data in the JPEG format that is present in RAW.

For more information about RAW format digital photography, visit Digitial Photography School online (free!) and other photographic tutorial sites.

I hope this is helpful!

You can always use a card reader instead of the camera to download your pics...then you don't need any special software. typrice_196.jpg

Could be the PCB board ($250.00 part! + labour) as this happened to mine. However, because I bought a new unit off of ebay, Panasonic wouldn't warranty it! So it sits at home waiting for a part.
