Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

Lumix pictures blurry

I recently got a panasonic lumix dmc-tz3.  When I take pictures in any mode they most often times appear fuzzy.

My photos are now often (not always) blurry although they weren't that way for the first three or four months of owning the camera.  I don't know why this is the case and would appreciate help, if possible.

Re: lumix pictures blurry

I would suggest that the image stabilizer might not be working right. Could you upload a photo to Flickr or other location where I could look at the EXIF, or list it here. I would like to see what the camera is writing to the image as the settings when the photo was taken.

Does it make a difference when the image stabilizer is on or off?

The camera took great pictures then all of a sudden the screen appears as a purple haze -- and the pictures come out as just a purple blurry haze. Adjusting brightness doesn't work. Yet, the shutt

If the LCD displays correctly on previous photos then the problem is more than likely a CCD or associated ribbon connector failure due to moisture/condensation or age/misuse. Good luck with finding a replacement part!

Bluish colour with Lumix TZ3

I found 2 different Lumix TZ3 cameras.

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

In FAQ's, I found the following:
What is “Intelligent Auto Mode” (or IA Mode)?
“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

How do you delete multiple pictures from the panasonic lumix DMC TZ3.  What mode and or functions on the camera do I use to delete multiple pictures at once?

The quickest way to multiple delete pictures from you camera after you have copied or backed them up is to use the camera's menu to format the camera or/and card.

Blue photos from a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 digital camera

It might be an idea to check whether your "white balance" is not set to "fluorescent light" or "custom white balance". "Auto" is the safest option here. Incorrect white balance would cause blue/yellow cast on the picture. Otherwise the problem might be more severe (i.e. sensor failure-not common in TZ3 though).
If you're still getting blue cast with white balance set to auto, you can try to set "custom white balance" with white sheet of paper (refer to the manual for details) - this will override auto white balance.
Good luck!

Panasonic DMC-TZ3 72 dpi problem

Sounds like Photoshop's setting, or default setting, is to import picture at its maximum size. If you RESIZE pic on Photoshop, it shoud automatically increase DPI while reducing physical size.

The other thing to be aware, TZ3 defaults to a certain jpg compression. You can minimize compression of data with settings options on TZ3, but I doubt this has anything to do with your PhotoShop issue.

Also, in SIMPLE mode you can select a physical size for photo, even after pic is taken(resize), on camera.

Hopes this helps.

Likely a mem card defect. Try it in a card reader or retail store photo kiosk.
