Hi, I bought last year a TZ5.Realy a fine camera... After my travel from Thailand, I saw that picture size from 9.1 megapixels is missing on my TZ5. (I have only 7.5, 5.5, 3.5, 2.) I was on a site to download the 1.2 version with the hope that it will solve the problem... But still I see this problem. How can I help myself to resolve this?Thanks to help me!Frank.
In which mode is this, sounds like you're in one of the "scene modes" when in normal mode, or in "Intelligent Auto" mode you should be able to select all megapixel modes. (9Mp is only available in 4:3 mode)
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

Having looked at the full manual - downloaded from here and savable: http://tda.panasonic-europe-service.com/docs/2z54662404z3z38916z656ez706466z22zdf06e277f71e6367f9e09db70241478cb0ad23ae/tsn3/data/ALL/HXWA30EG/OI/902781/vqt4x32.pdf
I think you will find that you cannot actually change from 4:3 to 16:9 aspect ratio for a particular pixel sized picture. When you set the pixels for the picture you want, the aspect ratio is set automatically.
For example: 16Megapixels 4608x3456 4:3
12Megapixels 4608x2592 16:9 See page 96 of the manual mentioned above for a full table of Megapixels, size, ratio etc
Therefore changing the picture size from the simple menu changes the aspect ratio but you do not have control of the aspect ratio for each size, in other words you cannot take a 16Megapixel picture at 16:9, it has to be 4:3.
Hope this has been helpful
Please don't confuse the input resolution with the print resolution. DPI controls how many dots per inch are printed. It has nothing to do with how the picture is taken, that's controlled by the input resolution (also called image size). The image quality has nothing to do with either, it controls how much the image is compressed before being stored.
Input resolution (image size) is controlled by the "IMAGE SIZE" entry in the Shooting menu. 14 megapixels is the best this camera can do.
Image quality is controlled by the "COMPRESSION" entry in the Shooting menu. FINE is the best quality, least compression.
The DPI is controlled by whatever program you're using to print your picture. Were you to print a 14-megapixel picture at 72 DPI, you would get a picture that's almost 5 feet by 4 feet. Were you to print the same picture at 300 DPI, you would get a picture that's about 14 inches by 11 inches. If you wanted to print a 6 inch by 4 inch picture, you would have to print at about 700 DPI.
The 8M and 5M in the picture size setting is 8 megapixel or 5 megapixel. You can change to a lower i.e 5 M so that you can get more pictures onto the same memory card because the resolutions change and space occupied is also less.
Depending on what you're photographing, you can sometimes put it on micro mode (the super zoom mode). Whether or not you can do this, you should definintly bump it into fine or best quality, the more memory the picture takes up the better.
Ideal camera for uses like this would be one around 10 megapixels, this is the most that you should need unless you plan on blowing the pictures up very much larger than 8x10.
set the camera for a lower resolution (megapixels). go into yr menu and change for considerable low resolution, make some tries to find which one suite to u better usually 2 or 3 millions megapixels should be fine.
The only thing you missed, unfortunately is the camera you should've bought.
The p72 is riddled with problems. Noisy high ISO shots, colours too hot, Vignetting and downright poor quality pictures compared to cameras with less Megapixels.
A lot of people swear by them but they are usually people who've never owned any other camera. Those color casts and tinted shots are very offputting to someone with more scope in Digital cameras.
I'm not totally condemning the p72 but there are many, many cameras of the same format which leave it for dead.
The camera is not megabytes (MB) but megapixel (MP), there is a big difference. If you multiply the horizontal resolution by the vertical resolution then that will be how many megapixels are being captured. So in this case, max resolution 2048 x 1536 = 3145728 which is 3.1 MP effective. I don't think any camera actually captures exactly the full MP listed on the camera.
Now, if each pixel was represented by a byte then you would have 3.1 MegaByte picture captured. However, each pixel is represented by I think 3 bytes which would give you a 9.3 Megabyte picture captured. However, since this is usually to large for most users to deal with, compression is introduced thus the settings for fine and standard.
The tiff picture type is the 9.3 Megabyte photo with no compression. For most of us this isn't very effective for working with so we use the jpg compression. This reduces the picture to a more manageable size for saving, manipulation and storing. Keep in mind that this is what is called a 'lossy' compression which means that it actually removes pixels from the photograph and uses a technique called interpolation to bring the pixels back later.
