Recently when i have been trying to take photo's in low light, indoors or at night the flash speed seems to be off so it never actually takes a shot you can use (always completey dark or blurry. It seems like the flash is not timing with the shutter properly is there an easy way to fix this or does it neeed to go to a repair shop.
Camera work fine in daylight and seems ok in every other way.
I have tried it with all the camera setting and doesn't really make any differnce.

At night and at concerts, the light level is low. If your camera is on auto, it will try to fire the flash. It's only effective for about 8 feet. Anything farther away than that will be dark. In these instances, it's best to turn off the flash, set the ISO to a higher setting, and set the white balance for tungsten lighting. You'll need to hold the camera steady but you should get better shots.
If the spots appear on flash pics only and are in different places on each photo, then the spots are not on your lens. Those are dust particles reflecting the light from your flash. It's a common problem with point-and-shoot cameras.
Hi, it is always best to test some settings. As a Fz 50 owner, I would go for the high sensitivity mode in scn. Or I´d go into P program, set a higher iso, 200-400-800 depending on the light. Remember, the darker it gets, the longer the shutter remains open - high chance for camera shake. Our cameras are similar, you could get along with this too.
The TZ series is not known for good indoor pictures. T Z is short fot Travel Zoom. The is great for outdoor pictures and long distance shots.
Indoors, be sure you use flash and your subject is within 8 feet so flash light can reach them. Let the camera select the proper settings using the Intelligent ISO setting.. Or set it to Night slow shutter speed) while holding the camera, and subject very still for 3 seconds after shutter press, and with Image Stabilization on.
Also, don't forget if you are viewing the pics on your big screen PC, then the pics will always look worse than they will either on your Camera screen professionally printed pix fo 5x7, which will likely be fine to acceptable. If you get up to 9x10 printed sizes, then you will likely see what you would see on a large PC screen....not very good.
There is a chance you have a bad camera. If it is under warranty, take it to a panasonic repair center locally. I am afraid if you send it off to a depot, they may charge you while declaring nothing is wrong with it.
If you can adjust the ISO sensitivity to a lower number then the graininess will be reduced.
However, by reducing the ISO, you will need a slower shutter speed and a larger aperture. A tripod, table or other support may be necessary.
The "noise reduction" setting on the camera can also be adjusted a step up.
Taking pictures at full resolution and fine compression will also help. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Overall, at least try lowering the ISO, and using the flash brighter.
