Bad TIFF files

Hi Ergo,
I have the same problem with the same Panasonic camera. I've tracked it down to Kingston 2 Gig chips. Was your chips made by Kingston ??
1 or 2 gig ?? I have 3 other manufacturer brands and they work well.
I've contacted Kingston but their first level support could not answer my problem. I'm waiting to get information from their second level support.

Hi Bobpuppy,

I only have SanDisk memory cards, but it's certainly a possibility that the problem is associated with the media rather than the camera...I'll have to check that out.
I appreciate the input...please let me know if you find out anything from Kingston's 2nd level support group.

Thanks much,
-Ergo

Good day I have a Lumix DMC- FZ20 When I put the settings on Tiff and the pic size on 2560 the camera outomatically create a jpg file as well. The Tiff file is very bic, about 14MB and looks like a...


I have this camera, and like you I have taken photos in the Hi-resolution TIFF mode. What you are experiencing is not a camera problem, but a problem with the software you are using to view the pic. Tiff is an odd format that can be configured in different ways and not all viewing software understands all the different configurations. The viewer I use is called Faststone, and can be downloaded for free from the internet- try at www.downloads.com

Faststone displays my FZ20 TIFF files perfectly. They are very big (14Mb) though, and there is little advantage over the jpg if you use the high quality compression setting.

I have a DMC-FZ20 and the tiff pictures are wrong, jpg are fine


It's all to do with SD cards greater than 1GB and the limitations of the camera firmware. For some reason the camera dumps an extra 16KB of junk 16KB into the Tiff which throws everything out.
I have a utility (drop me a line and I'll send it to you) I threw together using some 3rd party tools to fix and affected TIFF files but leave all unaffected ones alone. Just run it in the folder where you store the broken files.

Pictures duplicating


Hi,

I have a Panasonic DMC-FZ7, and there is one setting that I know of which will cause two images to be recorded:

#1. Open both photos in the computer and check the ending of the file name. One of them will say ".jpg" or ".jpeg" and the other photo will say ".tif" or ".tiff".

#2. If this is the case and you want smaller, compressed pictures, turn off the TIFF setting in your camera. It should say how to do this in the user-manual.

Unprotect memory card


Hi,

To set the memory card in unprotected mode, you have to do the following.

On the side of the SD chip, there is a little switch. Shift the switch away from "lock", then insert the card back into the camera.
This unprotects the card. You should now be able to take pictures and videos.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If this does not solve the problem, then it is very likely that the SD card is faulty. I would recommend using Panasonic, Lexar or Sandisk memory cards.

~Lexar SD card


~1 Panasonic SD card

~2 Panasonic SD card


~Sandisk SD card

New SD Card wont work - all the others I have do!!


I believe any SD cards larger than 2Gb are technically SDHC cards, which are not compatible with all cameras. Kingston is a decent company so I'm guessing it's not because the card is a dud. If your camera doesn't advertise SDHC compatibility then I don't think you can get the card to work in it.
