Problem with Panasonic Lumix TZ3 - Software

Hi, I have just purchased this great camera (direct from supplier in Japan), and we have taken some lovely photos. We have installed the CD which came with it, but when we try and edit the pictures all the jargon etc is in japanese with a load of question marks and we cant figure out how to change it. Not sure if we need to change the fonts or something. We are using Windows XP Professional. Please help as this is driving us mad!

Re: Problem with Panasonic Lumix TZ3 - Software

As long as the camera is working OK, don't worry too much - the software isn't essential - yours is obviously in japanese, so unless you can read jap, installing a font won't help!. When the camera is connected to windows XP, it is just a disc drive - you can see it through windows explorer, and if you open the folder DCIM you will find all the pictures you have taken. You can copy these to anywhere you want. Also, you can use any photo-editing software to open/edit your pix. As I also have an olympus camera I am actually using the olympus software to open/edit the pix on the lumix! For a free photo viewer/basic editor try irfanview from For a really good editor paintshop pro is good, but there are many editor progs outthere both free and pay. Just google photo or image editor

In the manual, I couldn't find a reference to a bluish color.

In FAQ's, I found the following:

“IA mode” automatically activates MEGA O.I.S., Intelligent ISO Control, Face Detection, Intelligent Scene Selector, Intelligent Exposure, and Quick Auto Focus to match your subject and shooting situation. IA Mode is a great mode for beginning photographers

Memory card likely has temporary(needs formatting) or permanent problems(needs replacing, common for off branded china junk).

First format the mem card on your camera by pressing center Menu button then scrolling down to the end of the menu to Format. If this does not work, and you have bought a Name Brand SD card; Sandisk/Kingston/Patriot etc, return it to place of purchase with receipt, or creditcard use to purchase it, and they will replace it.
