Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Panasonic DMC-TZ3 pictures never seem crisp and clear

The instruction book really does not help. My pictures always seem a little blurry and not crisp. I'm not sure if I'm using the right settings. I try using ntelligent ISO, hoping it will do it automatically but that doesn't help. I don't even know if I should be increasing the picture size or quality but I also don't like when each picture takes up a ton of space on my hard drive. Please help. I'm getting ready to get rid of the camera.

TZ stands for Travel Zoom, which is code for Outside View shots. The TZ is supper in good light, not so much in lower light.

In side shots need to be with 8 feet of subject so the flash can reach. Use ISO and IS mode 2 settings, especially IS(Image Stabilization) on zoomed shots where ANY camera movement becomes amplified by the ZOOM.

Lastly, camera movement and/or subject movement will add blur to a shot. Squeeze off shot, don't push it off. Try to brace your camera against another object when possible, or hold you elbows against your sides when you can't. Treat taking a pic shot like you were taking a rifle shot. Stabilize yourself when possible and gradually squeeze off the shot when possible.

When low light cannot be avoided, try the night shot setting, which will keep the shutter open longer to gather more light, but will be much more venerable to camea movement at the same time.

My Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ3 has two small scratches on the centre of the lens. Can it be repaired and is it cost effective? Otherwise the camera functions perfectly. Is it better to purchase a later model?


hi does it affect to picture? If it big scratch, it will. But most of case it won't affect on your picture. However it does, try magic black ink on scratch.( non gloss black ink) it will help a lot. Thanks and best regard! If you really want to change, your local repair shop would charge around $85 to 135 depend on what they really want to charge.

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?

Tz3 locked-up. everything seemed as if it shut


The shutter is locked (temporarily); probably because a picture was taken of absolute darkness ... the camera is trying to save the image.

Remove the batteries...

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.
