Re: please can you solve my problem?

I had the exact same problem that you had.  After tinkering for a bit I found out that I had old images on the camera.  After formatting the SD card from the camera everything works out just fine.

Lost my installation disk for Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

If all you want to do is download your pics, you don't need the disc. Just use a card reader to download to a folder you create on your desktop. 4f54dbf.jpg

Panasonic Digital camera DMC TZ3 Movie mode works and plays back on camera. When I import to Picassa they are stills. not movie clips

Picassa is a still photo software program. It does not work with videos. Try opening you videos in Quicktime. It's a free download if you don't have it already.

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.

Use your USB cable or a Card Reader. Read your manual to insert Date on pictures. Note date will show on pic and cannot be removed.

Best idea is to downloand you pics asap and change each pic file name to embed date taken in filename, not on the pic itself.

I recomment the San Disk MobileMate SD+ miniature Card Reader for SD and MicroSD card reading. Just a little larger than a Flash Thumb Drive. Saves lugging around a USB camera cable and saves your camera power otherwise needed to power a download via a USB cable. About $15 at RadioShack, Staples, etc retail stores selling cameras.

Transfering Video Clips

Hi I've had this problem with two Panasonics Lumix so far (FZ-7 and FX-9) - I'm guessing this is a Panasonic firmware / iPhoto incompatibility. The only solution I've found is to manually copy the movies from the camera to to your Mac and then drag n drop them into iPhoto. To do this: 1) Go to the Fnder desktop and open up the camera's hard-drive icon (probably called 'NO NAME' - nice!). 2) You should see a folder inside called 'DCIM' - double-click to open this 3) Inside this you will see at least one folder (though there maybe 2 or 3) called 102_PANA (or 103_PANA etc) 4) These folders are where the camera stores all your pictures and videos and (hopefully) will contain the actual movies that iPhoto neglected to fully import 5) Drag these onto your desktop (or a newly created folder on the desktop called 'Videos from camera' for example) and wait for them to copy fully 6) Now you can safely drag and drop the videos from the folder on your camera into the Mac's Wasterbasket 7) Import the copied movies into iPhoto (either by dragging and dropping or by the 'File --> Import to L:ibrary' menu command) 8) Once they have been imported, you can optionally delete these videos from the desktop now 9) Remember to repeat steps 3 to 8 for each folder you find in the 'NO NAME/DCIM' folder on the camera That's it - hope it works for you. I'd love to know if anyone else has a more elegant solution!! Cheers S
