    When camera was new, photos were great colors.
    Now they all are blue cast.
    Would be great to know what causes the blue photos.

Hello,
It might be an idea to check whether your "white balance" is not set to "fluorescent light" or "custom white balance". "Auto" is the safest option here. Incorrect white balance would cause blue/yellow cast on the picture. Otherwise the problem might be more severe (i.e. sensor failure-not common in TZ3 though).
If you're still getting blue cast with white balance set to auto, you can try to set "custom white balance" with white sheet of paper (refer to the manual for details) - this will override auto white balance.
Good luck!

If the photos view normally on the TZ3, then the problem is with your computer viewer/photo program or settings, or the cameras download data transfer.

A very hand SD card reader to have, no bigger than a USB thumb drive, is the Sandisk MobileMate SD+. It is $10 to $20, depending of sales, from RadioShack, Staples, or most places that sell digital cameras. It frees you from carrying around a bulky or unique USB Camera cable, xfers pictures faster, and doesn't use your camera's battery power.....while also letting you test your current potential data xfer problem.

Make sure you have the Mac driver for your camera. Install the Mac driver that came with the CD. Try to use a different USB cable. You can also try to isolate the problem by plugging your camera to a Windows OS computer like windows xp and vista.

Hi,
The quickest way to multiple delete pictures from you camera after you have copied or backed them up is to use the camera's menu to format the camera or/and card.

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

If all you want to do is download your pics, you don't need the disc. Just use a card reader to download to a folder you create on your desktop. 4f54dbf.jpg

I lost Panasonic LUmix DMC-TZ15 driver


Do you have a USB card reader? Just take the card from the camera, pop into the reader, and you can transfer your photos.
No drivers required unless using Windows 98 or earlier.

Also, the model is wrong, do you mean TZ5? You should be able download software for the camera from www.panasonic.com
