  • Try using the auto intelligent mode on the camera.
  • Ensure that it is not in 'Macro' mode.
    This is used to take close ups (3-10cm in range)
  • Ensure the lens element is clean.

Hi,
It is ccd imager chip failure problem in DMC-TZ3 and ccd imager chip will be replaced to solve this issue.
CCD Imager chip part number is VEK0L04 and available in PartStore.com for $141
Local camera repair shop will replace it because camera will take apart and expert tech is required to do so.
Thanks.

Lumix pictures blurry


I would suggest that the image stabilizer might not be working right. Could you upload a photo to Flickr or other location where I could look at the EXIF, or list it here. I would like to see what the camera is writing to the image as the settings when the photo was taken.

Does it make a difference when the image stabilizer is on or off?

Bluish colour with Lumix TZ3


I found 2 different Lumix TZ3 cameras.
http://www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/PNAEndecaSearchCmd?N=779832097+250033510&Ne=&Ns=&Nr=12001&No=0&Ntt=tz3&Ntk=SupportSearch&URL=vSupportSearch&cmTag=false&cm_sp=&cn=&catalogId=13401&storeId=15001

In the manual, I couldn't find a reference to a bluish color.

In FAQ's, I found the following:
What is “Intelligent Auto Mode” (or IA Mode)?
“IA mode” automatically activates MEGA O.I.S., Intelligent ISO Control, Face Detection, Intelligent Scene Selector, Intelligent Exposure, and Quick Auto Focus to match your subject and shooting situation. IA Mode is a great mode for beginning photographers

Lumix DMC-FX33. Keep on getting "Please turn camera off and then on again" over and over again. Occasionally I can focus and take a picture and the camera works for a day or two. Then the problem...


I have the same problem. It resulted when we used the camera is windy conditions with very fine sand blowing around. Some of those grains are lodged in the automatic lens cover and in the autofocus/zoom mechanism in the lens. I can actually hear the grinding as the camera tries to open.
Now, how do I fix it?

Pictures are shadowy with panasonic tz3


Is the flash going off? Have you tried slow shutter sync with your flash indoors for some great shots.

Lumix TZ3 zebra stripes in daylight pictures


hello sodaclub, this fault is normally caused from to much light entering through the lens, the shutter is not closing or working at all.

Panasonic DMC-TZ3 72 dpi problem


Sounds like Photoshop's setting, or default setting, is to import picture at its maximum size. If you RESIZE pic on Photoshop, it shoud automatically increase DPI while reducing physical size.

The other thing to be aware, TZ3 defaults to a certain jpg compression. You can minimize compression of data with settings options on TZ3, but I doubt this has anything to do with your PhotoShop issue.

Also, in SIMPLE mode you can select a physical size for photo, even after pic is taken(resize), on camera.

Hopes this helps.

Hazy photos


I assume you are not shooting into sun. Try shooting with camera in its default settings and mode set to Auto Normal.

Fuzzy pictures from my Panasonic DMC-FZ5


Fuzzie picture -meaning out of focus? Check that you have not got 1- macro setting on [setting symbol looks like a tiny plant] or that you have a low light setting which menas it is taking long exposures. Aslso the Auto foxus may not be function as it should - one possibility is that the way you hold the camera covers the 'window' make sure your fingers are aware from any of the front top panel 'windows' When you depress the shutter part way down- does the lens 'motor' to focus Or indeed are you doing part way or are snapping off shot and giving the camera time to focus? Lots of thing for you to check out, before we start getting worried. The difficult ones are if the camera has taken a knock and the lens mount has become dislodged But do all the check first and do consult the manual
