Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Developing picture I have had this camera since Christmas and for the most part have been very pleased with it. The problem is that when I take my card to get developed, the pictures are somewhat fuzzy even though they look clear as a bell on my LCD monitor and on the computer before printing. What settings do I need to be using for the clearest pictures. I use Sports Mode for my boys' outdoor sports and High Sensitivity Mode for their indoor events. As I said, both look great on the computer but then don't print well.

Re: developing picture

Both high sensitivity mode and sports mode (when there is not much sun outdoors) can use high ISO sensitivity, which will add some noise to the pictures. But as you say, the pictures look great on PC. Are you watching them on 100% scale (in original size, not shrinken to fit screen size)? So there is some problem in the way the company printing photos is altering the pictures. Try asking their staff for assistance with options to set there. Also try different company. In good company they should be able to help you with this.

Dark pictures

There are several possibilities.

1) The camera store screwed up, and your photos are just fine. Have you looked at the photo files on your computer?

2) You accidentally set the camera into manual mode and with settings that don't work for the light. How do the photos look when you preview them on the camera?

3) This is the most likely problem: It sounds like you have accidentally set the "exposure compensation" value. This setting is used to help correct the exposure when shooting a scene that should be mostly white (e.g. in the snow, or bright sand at the beach) because otherwise the camera will make the scene be "medium gray". Check your user manual for instructions on how to set the exposure compensation and make sure it is set to 0.

If your photos are too dark when viewed on the computer and the preview screen, and EV is set to 0, then your camera may have a faulty light meter. If so, you need to send it in for repair under the warranty, or return it to the place of purchase as defective and see if they will exchange it for you.

Developed Pictures

I didn't think double exposures were possible with digital cameras! You learn something new every day! BUT--to find out if it is the camera or some doofus who is sloppy making prints for you, download a whole bunch to your (or anyone's) computer, and see if there are any double exposures. I think whoever developed your pictures must have had one hell of a hangover. COMPLAIN. I bet they will send you redone and complete new copies.
