Select the best resolution in your settings camera to improve the pic quality
Low light? Go to ISO settings and select the average level (ISO 400) to get more night light to your pics without loose quality.

There are 5 ISO settings available on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 which you can select at any time if the camera is in the normal shooting mode. There is virtually no discernible noise at the slowest settings of ISO 100 and 200, and ISO 400 also looks very good. Noise and slight loss of detail is apparent at ISO 800, particularly in the shadow areas, and at the fastest setting of ISO 1600 image quality has deterioated quite a lot as the camera blurs detail to try and hide the noise. There is a High Sensitivity mode that goes up to ISO 6400, but it should be avoided at all costs as the results are terrible. The best option is ISO 400 for nights pics.......

    The maximum shutter speed is 60 seconds in the Starry Sky Mode scene mode (there are also 15 and 30 second options) and 8 seconds in the Night Scenery mode, which is good news if you're seriously interested in night photography.

Basically you need a slow shutter speed with a high flash for pictures at night to come out clear.

A lower ISO setting.

You also need to manual focus.

Digital Cameras in comparison with Video Cams fails in performance in night shots. Watch your distance maximize the flash. Not too close & not too far.

When I take pictures indoors the people come out with a yellow tint to them. Do I have the wrong setting ??


Artificial light is a different colour than daylight. Our eyes compensate, so we don't notice it much. Digital cameras can compensate too, but whether they do or not depends on the settings. The setting you want to investigate is colour balance. If this is set to daylight, it will give an orange cast to pictures taken in tungsten lighting, and a greenish cast to pictures taken in fluorescent light. If it is set to artificial light, pictures taken in daylight will have a bluish cast. The best setting for most people is Auto. That will let your camera decide, and usually it will get it about right.

Can I adjust the shutter speed on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 so I can take pictures of waterfalls with the water blurry and the background in focus? Can I adjust the depth of field so my subject is in...


You're asking a lot of a point-and -shoot camera. For the waterfall, set your ISO for the lowest setting and put your camera on a tripod. Shoot when the day is cloudy. For a shallow depth of field, the best you can do is use the zoom at maximum and stand farther back. Sounds to me like you're ready to step up to a DSLR camera!

What would be the very best settings on the DMC-TZ5 camera for an indoor rock concert?


Without flash the DMC TZ5 still does well. The photo has a good level of detail. It also has a natural look to it. Once again there is that bit more colour in the shot than I am used to seeing.

The way Panasonic manage the ISO settings is a little different to other brands. With the DMC TZ5 you set the maximum ISO rating you wish to use and then the camera is intelligent to work out the actual setting. This tends to produce better results than with other brands in most situations.

Hope helped.

Blubby video and choppy sound when taking picture in night mode


I also have an SDR-H40 HDD Video Camera and I have read in the instruction book that the footage is meant to be like this in low light situations. The reason for this is because the CCD charge time is slowed down to enhance light. By the way I also get poor quality footage in low light mode.

Very grainy pictures indoors at night


If you can adjust the ISO sensitivity to a lower number then the graininess will be reduced.

However, by reducing the ISO, you will need a slower shutter speed and a larger aperture. A tripod, table or other support may be necessary.

The "noise reduction" setting on the camera can also be adjusted a step up.

Taking pictures at full resolution and fine compression will also help.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Overall, at least try lowering the ISO, and using the flash brighter.

Panasonic Lumix DCM-LC43


Sell it to a repairman on ebay and buy a good used, refurb or new replacement. I would ugrade to at least the wide angle 6Meg TZ3. The TZ5 is the newest TZ line.

Great cameras. I have the TZ3 and have never looked back.
