Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

All pictures have 'blue factor': not sure if I accidentally put it into some sort of strange mode ... in particular, outdoor shots all have a bluish hue and other colors are muted

SOURCE: Blue photos

Snow pictures tend to be blue due to the blue spectrum being scattered and reflected from the snow (similar to why the sky is blue). Plus just after sunset, you're going to get a cooler color temperature (blue cast). However, instead of choosing Auto WB, I'd set the white balance manually. (You might also try Warm in Color Effect settings for an even warmer effect.)

Like mem card problems. Try another in the camera, try reading card on a computer via a usb port card reader. Try reformating card using camera FORMAT function.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: small scratch on front lens causing shadow on some

You have only two fix options:-

1. Get the front lens element replaced by Panasonic. This will be fairly expensive. Afterwards, buy and fit a skylight filter to protect the lens.

2. Buy a skylight filter to protect the front of the lens from further damage and use photo processing software to retouch the affected images. This won't necessarily cost much, but will be a real pain to have to do all the time.

Whatever you do, do not attempt to polish out the scratch as this will destroy the lens coatings and will also reshape the lens slightly ruining it's optical qualities.

Fuse location


Are you sure your display is not working?
Did you try to view pictures you already made? in the viewing mode you can't switch off the screen. While taking pictures you can. For display mode look at page 16 of the manual.
It would be strange if there was a fuse for the display. It would be very strange if you could replace a fuse.

Outdoor pictures are all white


Double check the mode the carera is in to make sure you are not in manual mode. Most point and shoot digital cameras have an auto mode. Try putting the camera in auto mode to see if that helps. In manual mode you have to select the appropriate Fstop setting (how much light gets through the lens) and the shutter speed (how long the lens stays open during the shot).

Hi there. i have D7000 with 50mm F1.8D. what would be the best camera setting for in-house and outdoor photography?


That would depend on a lot of factors. Are you doing the outdoor photography in the day or at night? Are you doing the indoor photography in the day or at night? With just existing light or with aritificial light? What do you want the photos to say to the viewer?

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you want to take pictures for real estate sales purposes. If not, please reply to this post and say what you want the photos for.

Outdoors, I'd just put the camera into the Program (P) exposure mode. Since the house and shrubbery aren't going to be moving very fast, the autofocus setting doesn't matter much (just make sure it is set to one of the autofocus modes, not manual). Leave the white balance on auto.

Indoor, if there's enough daylight coming in through the windows, go with Program exposure, any autofocus, and auto white balance. If you have to use floodlights, set the white balance to match the floods. The camera's built-in flash won't evely illuminate a room (nearer stuff will be much brighter than the farther stuff), so don't use it. You can use an external flash with a diffuser or bounced off the ceiling or a wall.

Pictures turn out either almost invisible or deep red/blue strange colours. Inside and out. Worked perfectly then stopped abruptly. Not a battery problem I dont think. canon power shot A430 . Which...


Here's the support site url for your camera:-

http://usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_a_series/powershot_a430#DriversAndSoftware (this is for XP)

I see that there are no firmware upgrades so can only think of one thing which may help.
It may have failed but using the menu options on your camera try a reset. It may sort things out.

If you're not sure how to get there, you should be able to download a manual from there to guide you.

If it has had it, and it is quite old, you can try for a second hand camera (ebay or high street) But nearly all new budget digital cameras should meet your needs, but here's a url to a review site:-

http://www.steves-digicams.com/

Failing that, go for a brand you know like Canon, Sony, Fuji, Nikon etc.

Finally, My wife just got a Fuji finepix Av120, it should be about $60 in America, its a 12MPix camera and has loads of features including a "Panaromic Photo" feature, straight forward to use and score 84% in a professional review.

Hi! We currently have a problem with our camera (casio EX-S770). every picture i take outdoors are white, while indoors, the pictures horizontally striped, what should we do? and is there a CASIO company...


One of two likely problems. First possible problem is that you're not in auto mode, but one of the camera's manual modes (such as for night shots). First verify that you are indeed in automatic mode. Second possible problem may be a stuck shutter. 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, sometimes with lines, 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.

First press the DISP button to make sure that you didn't just accidentally turn it off.

Are you sure that you are in full "auto" mode when you are taking your pictures? Make sure that the mode selector is set to the first red camera (without the M) right next to the little blue arrow.

If you already are in full auto, 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).

Your camera is not capable of taking 15 second exposures. Instead try putting it in manual mode, turn off the flash, take it in a darkened room, take the picture, and open the battery door while the red and yellow lights are blinking. Give it several tries, but note that the chances may be very slim for success as the shutter symptoms suggest that it is stuck open.
