Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX12 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Faint spot on pictures towards the bottom.

My pics have started to get a spot towards the bottom. It is not very distinct but shaded darker and roundish and you can see it even before you take a picture. I tried cleaning the lens, but my guess is that it is either on the other side of the lens or something else.

Usually such screen flickering occurs when you had applied some pressure on the LCD ( can be due to high shocks on the camera such as dropping it from a height, hitting on the LCD ...etc ) and will eventually damage the screen.But it wont affect the pictures you are taking since the image capture is by the inbuilt image sensor.You can claim for the warranty if it's a manufacturing defect and they will service it free of cost.Your valuable feedback would be appreciated.

Some of my pictures have a spot on them. like a "water" spot. i thought i was on the lens but two or three pics will be ok then one will spot. any clue?

The clue was that not all of your pictures had this spot or two. What I expect from what your wrote is that these spots are what is called lens flair. It's caused by a strong point of light entering the lens at an angle. Such points of light are common in landscapes on a bright sunny day, reflection off water or some other shiny surface. If the camera was used at night the "spots" could be coming from a street light. Most of the time it's the sun, the only way to stop this is first to be aware that it could happen when the camera is pointed to an gale of the sun. What you do for a point and shoot is hold your one hand over and above the lens sort of like the peak on a cap. Make sure your hand is high enough to be out of the camera field of view but still offer some shade to the lens. I do this but normally with the camera mounted to a tripod and i use my hat.
Have fun

Sounds to me like you're on the right track.

There are plenty of places that can clean your CCD for you if you can be without the camera for a little bit, but there is also the solution of cleaning the CCD yourself. This is a scary topic, however, because a) if you do it, it will void your manuf. warranty, if applicable and b) if you do it and mess it up, your CCD can be damaged.

There are products out there - swabs and solutions - to clean the CCD if you choose to do so yourself. Personally, to make certain that nothing goes wrong, I would send it to Nikon or take it to your local dealer and have them take a look at it.

Uneven flash

Look carefully at your images taken with flash... on the horizontal image is the lower part of the image slighty darker and have a rounded fall off at the edges? Is the vertical image dark side a straight hard line or is there a rounding to the top and bottom?

What we are looking at is if you have a very wide angle lens with the lens shade attached to the lens, then the built-in flash catches part of the lens shade and make a shadow on your subject... take the lens shade off and try the same shot and see if that makes a difference...

Have a great day...

Image darkness

You might have to change your selected media choice. For example, if you are taking a close up picture you can select the face icon on the camera, etc. The problem is that the shutter isnt allowing that light to absorb in your lense which creates a darker image. You might have to use your flash or change the environment control to help the camera decifer where you are and what you are taking a picture of.. I own a D50 which is a Nikon, that is the same thing for me. I'm unsure of the coolpix, but typically you can point your lense towards ambient light to help the lense open up if its set to auto, then take the picture. Think of it as your eye, it needs that light in order to see.
