    Thanks Arjuun, but I can't see anywhere in this guide instructions on how to use the wide angle, it just refers to the wide angle feature being available.

  • Arjun Komath Jun 03, 2010

    I am sorry. I didnt get the question properly.


    Read this post to know a little about using Wide angles lens : http://www.videomaker.com/article/3242/


    Now, on the camera, they are several modes that help you take wide angle shots. You can try taking pictures using the SCENERY mode which supports wide angle.

    Tried using scenary mode and it does'nt work, unless the lens pulled back as far as it will go is supposed to be wide angle, although it does'nt appear to be and I would'nt have thought the standard view when turning the camera on would be set to wide-angle, and the screen says 1x when pulled back as far as it will go which again does'nt indicate to me it is wide-angle ?

My Panasonic DMC-TZ5 will no longer focus, especially after using zoom. It displays messages re shutting camera off and on, takes 30 seconds to turn off and sounds like a ticking clock! It is only 3 months...


If you mention "ticking clock" sounds, then most probably something like a grain of sand fell into the cogs in the zoom mechanism (been taking pictures on a beach? ;). Dirt gets into the mechanism through the gaps between the zoom barrels and the camera body. One tiny grain of sand is enough to cause the lens mechanism to jam or malfunction.
Unfortunately, this is a problem with pretty much all compact zoom cameras. Usually there is not much you can do with this. First thing I try in cases like these is gently tapping the camera to shift whatever might be blocking the mechanism. If unsuccessul, then only way I know to fix this is completely stripping the lens to clean it or swapping the lens with one taken from another camera ("donors" available on ebay ;).
If you are not keen on tinkering with your camera I would suggest selling it on ebay - TZ5 with lens mechanism issues still fetch pretty good prices.

From repairman's point of view I can say that TZ5 / TZ3 (same lens design) are much better in in terms of "resisting dirt" than various other manufacturers. They are very well made and relatively easy to dismantle and fix. This is most probably the reason why even broken ones still sell quite well on ebay.

Of course, you might get unlucky with most robust piece of kit :(

Well, hope this helps.
Good luck with your TZ5.

Hi I have a panasonic tz3 camera that when i turn it on it after 3 sec turns to please turn camera off and then on again the cover in front does not open up either any idea?


The cover not opening is a common problem with the TZ3, but this should not cause the waring message. Has the camera been bumped hard or dropped?

Try rapping the camera smartly against the heel of your other hand, or on a harder surface cushioned by a double layer of bath towel. You can also coax the lens cover open with a toothpick.

The error your seeing is common for lens problems, either unable to extend or retraced. Sometime you can overcome these problem by giving the lens or cover some manual help. Otherwise, repairmen on ebay buy them for repair, and working used ones are available on ebay at a good price, likely much better than what a local camera shop would charge you, and much better than what Panasonic would charge you.

If you take the ebay option, you can weigh the option of upgrading tp the TZ5, but the TZ5 is not worth upgrading to if bought new. Don't be fooled with a large pixel figure. TZ3 is a very nice camera to have. I love the wide angle and long zoom..

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 spots on pictures


Upgrade to the TZ3 or TZ5. TZ3 is smaller and has a great wide angle lens. You can get a very good buy on Ebay for a used or new TZ3 because it has been replaced with the latest TZ5.

You can likely get about $40 dollars for yous, if it has all the stuff it shipped with, even with the problem you mention, since repairmen buy time to fix and resell on ebay.

Panasonic Lumix DCM-LC43


Sell it to a repairman on ebay and buy a good used, refurb or new replacement. I would ugrade to at least the wide angle 6Meg TZ3. The TZ5 is the newest TZ line.

Great cameras. I have the TZ3 and have never looked back.
