Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 Digital Camera with 14-45mm lens

1 Answer

I cannot operate my Koolertron PIXEL RW221/RS1 remote shutter release with my DMC-GF1 camera.

I own a DMC GF1. Last year I bought a Pixel RW 221 remote shutter release to use with my camera. I don't understand why the shutter will not activate using this remote system. I have fresh batteries in both the transmitter and the receiver. The cord is fully inserted into both the receiver and the camera. When I depress the shutter release button on the transmitter, at the half-way point, the receiver's led lights green. However, when the button is fully depressed, the receiver's led goes from green to red...but nothing happens. The camera does not take a picture. Can anybody help me figure out what's wrong, or what I might be doing wrong? This remote just doesn't seem to be working with my camera.

SOURCE: Camera froze up w/ no button function

hello, these units have a very fine zoom switch and can get damaged by a drop or fine sand. the zoom switch sits under the actual button. if you turn the camera on in camera mode and the display is showing the zoom on screen display then you know it is the switch.

Hi...I found your post while searching for the answer to the same question!  I thought I'd let you know what the tech support person told me, which worked immediately.  There is a button on your remote that says MUSIC with SRD above it.  Push this button, while surround sound speakers are on, and they should work instantly.  They are quieter than the regular speakers, so you might have to turn up the sound.  Hope this works for you (if you are still having troubles, that is).  The manual was no help with this subject.  So frustrating!

SOURCE: NEED HELP

G'day,

I also have the same problem and after almost buying a replacement I thought I would try one time to get it to go.

What I did was start the cam without a tape in it, let it bring up the little red icon indicating no tape inserted, (it hadn't started flashing "PLEASE RE-OPERATE AFTER PUSHING RESET BUTTON" at this stage) then I inserted my tape. Hey presto, it works although for how long I don't know. I'll immediately start burn my tapes to disc while the going is good.

Hope this helps someone

No. The DMC-GF1 was designed as a camera, storing to a memory card. It was not designed to stream videos to another device.

Power Shot A620 Canon 7.1 mega pixel 3 years


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help:

Dont you worry about that! Its normal specialy if you are using the higher mega pixel of your camera.

For you to minimized the processing you need to lower the mega pixel of picture size., you can adjust your picture size under Menu settings, And choose not lower or higher than 6 mega pixel to have a good quality picture printout

How do I increase the dpi on TZ5


Hi - When talking about resolution in digital photography there are two main meanings.
One is the "pixel count resolution" and the other "embedded resolution". So for example your camera could record 2272*1704 as the actual pixel count resolution and set 72 as the embedded resolution that tells other software (for example photoshop) what the intended use of the picture will be. 72 ppi is the default for web pictures. You can change this in photoshop by going to the "Image" tab & select image size. The window that opens will show you the pixel dimensions i.e. pixel count resolution and the document size & resolution 72. You just change it in your software to 300 for printing. In Photoshop you can change the default to 300 by going "edit", "preferences", "units & rulers" and setting the values for "new document preset resolutions".

So for your camera the embedded resolution is 180 which you can only change in your PC software.

This is a complex subject, I recommend looking at the following web page:

Pixel


the camera have a service menu that fixed it


first you must be in 24p mode for this operation

press and holding simultaneous the focus assist button(the one on the camera body)and the menu/status button for at least 5 seconds.

you see and advanced menu where the second line says CAMERA 1.

move the cursor down and push the shutter wheel to enter that menu and now you have a list with the six item being PIXEL COMPEN.

move down and select that item, the word CANCEL blinks.

change it to EXECUTE and push again. it takes about 10 seconds or so to perfom the operation and then tells you to power off the camera.

YOU ARE DONE!!
