Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 12.1 Megapixel Mirrorless Camera - 14 mm - 42 mm - Black 3" LCD - 3x Optical Zoom - Optical IS - 4000 x 3000 Image - 1920 x 1080 Video - HDMI - PictBridge - HD Movie Mode

1 Answer

My DMC-GF3 camera states to turn on and off the camera but I can still take photos. I can turn it on and take the shot and after that the prompt comes on to turn the camera off and on again

When I turn on the camera everything is normal. When I go to press the shudder to take the photo it takes it but then the prompt comes on that says to turn on and off the camera. When I turn it on I can go back and see the photo I took. But I have to turn off and on the camera each time to take a photo.

You have a software or hardware issue. The software has a glitch or the shutter motor is causing an overload or perhaps the focus motor. Go to Panasonic website and download the latest firmware and update it to eliminate the software. Also try reformatting the SD card.

Make sure you have the Mac driver for your camera. Install the Mac driver that came with the CD. Try to use a different USB cable. You can also try to isolate the problem by plugging your camera to a Windows OS computer like windows xp and vista.

SOURCE: Panasonic lumix dmc-lz7 lens cover won't open

Hey how you doin.
I had the same problem during a trip around Australia, some bull dust built up around the lens area. The only thing I did to rectify the problem was to blow it out with a tyre inflator at a road house when I stopped for petrol. No problem since then.
You may have some fine sand wedged in the cover area aswel.
Good luck 'R'

The innards of modern DSLRs are precise and fragile. You need to contact a reputable repair shop ASAP. In addition to fixing your camera, they will clean the interior properly, eliminating dust particles that find their way to the CCD. The cleaning is something you should have done from time to time anyway, so just bite the bullet and take it in!

SOURCE: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 cant upload photos!!

Did your friend use the "safely remove hardware" function when removing your card from her computer? That could corrupt your card if she didn't. Try this...take your card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture kiosk. They can usually read everything on a card. There, you can print the pics or even make a cd of them. Afterwards, format your card in your camera.

Can't download photos from my lumix gf3 camera


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as iPhoto, Windows Photo Gallery, and Picasa.

What would be the very best settings on the DMC-TZ5 camera for an indoor rock concert?


Without flash the DMC TZ5 still does well. The photo has a good level of detail. It also has a natural look to it. Once again there is that bit more colour in the shot than I am used to seeing.

The way Panasonic manage the ISO settings is a little different to other brands. With the DMC TZ5 you set the maximum ISO rating you wish to use and then the camera is intelligent to work out the actual setting. This tends to produce better results than with other brands in most situations.

Hope helped.

Lost cd which was supplied with camera . I am unable to upload photos from my camera to the desktop.


hmmm I believe that all you had on that disk was some photo editors..and related program ...your camera works on a SD memory card...and when you plug it ..you should see the card ..in my computer as a mass storage device ..or removable storage device ...
anyway I have a DMC- LS80...and the only driver on that disk is a usb driver ..that has nothing to do with the camera ...this models are fully automatic and do not need any connection drivers ..
Just be sure that the cam is on and powered ...after that confirm from the nemu ...what you want ist to do ...it will prompt you on the camera screen when you plug it ...and that's all .it will prompt to choose an action and open the folder like a common CD..or any other storage device

Not really possible with most cameras. Set the ISO to the highest setting and turn off the flash. This is the best you can do. Professional cameras that can shoot at ISO 3200-5200 are about the only cameras that can take that type of shot. Most pocket cameras do not have ISO above 1000.

Good luck!
