DMC FZ20 Aspect Ratio Problems: Correction

I am editing the previous post I made to reflect that my aspect ratio is more like -15%.

I'm bummed. For me this is a great camera but for the life of me I cant download a picture that doesn't look like its compressing a 6" human into one who appears 5"8"

The edited post follows here:

Hi.

I'm using my friends DMC FZ20 and am having problems with the aspect ratio.

Every picture I download (via USB) shows up on my computer as squat.

I have tried using various programs to download and/or open the pictures, including Picture it, The most recent Picassa, and as well Photoshop.

In using photoshop, I see that when I tweak the aspect ratio to ..85 (minus .15%) they seem to be fairly representational.

I looked high and low for a driver and to no avail, I could download one from Panasonic Australia if I only had an Australian address that could be verified.

I think I need a driver, but perhaps someone smarter than I could tell me if this is true, and if so where I might find one or, if not what I am doing wrong.

Thanks

Mike

How can I get rid of the nasty wide horizontal line on the screen of our TV manufactured 2008...? Will It be expensive to repair...?


If by "nasty wide horizontal lines" you mean LETTERBOX masks (at the top and bottom of the screen), all you need to do is select the correct ASPECT RATIO for the program you are watching. Consult your USER MANUAL to determine the menu settings for ASPECT RATIO.
If you do not understand what "aspect ratio" means, or what different aspect ratios exist, do an Internet search for "aspect ratio" and read.

How to adjust aspect ratio on sony kdl-v40xbr1


Hello
To take advantage of the wide mode feature on your TV, Set the DVD players' aspect ratio to 16:9. For details, refer the operating instructions supplied with your DVD player. Aspect ratio must be set with DVD player. Not with the TV. OK.

Cannot change aspect ratio when im playing a game it cuts off part of the screen


Normal aspect ratio is 4:3, and the wide aspect ratio is 16:9. If you play a game meant for 4:3 and you change the TVs aspect ratio to 16:9; part of the picture will be cut off. It is not the fault of the TV.

Icons and screen not sized properly-too big and out of proportion


Right click on your desktop
Click Properties
Click on the Settings Tab
It will say resolution with a sliding bar, you can move that around untill you find the right aspect ratio. Try 1024x768..

Hope that helps let me know :)

"Movie Recording disabled"


guys hope you all found the solution like me who had same issue. if you noticed, it says about the aspect ratio and that means the formated disc aspect ratio is not compatible with the aspect ratio your camera need. so re-formating the dvd with right aspect ratio solved the problem quickly and we have peace.
