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.

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.

How to scan documents and save them as jpg Format as default instead of tiff?


On some copiers, there is an option to scan as JPG. Press the Scanner function key on the left, and look for a button on the screen that says something like "Scan as file type." Press this button, and if that copier can scan JPG files, you should see the option there. Otherwise you might have to scan as TIFF files and then use a program like Microsoft Office Picture Manager to convert them to JPG images.

TIFF not JPEG


I don't know how you're downloading your pictures, but if they are taken as TIFF in the camera, they should download as such. Try downloading them to a folder you create on your desktop and then work with them from there.

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.

Documents scanned as 256 grey scale/TIFF show up as black pages.


Grey as you know is different shades of black. Uncompressed TIF can store this information. Compressed TIFF is not designed for this. Compressed TIFF is for blck & white only. Try JPG option. JPG can compress Color & Grey. For pure black & white chose TIFF compression.

The speed is selectable from 3 types at the continuous advance. Continuous advance: Single shot AF: max. 1.8 fps (live view and anti-shake are activated for each frame. TIFF image cannot be taken), continuous AF: max. 1.9 fps (live view, AF, AE, anti-shake are activated for each frame. TIFF image cannot be taken.) Hi-Speed continuous advance: max. 2.7 fps (Anti-shake is activated for each frame. AF, AE, WB, and live view are fixed at the first frame. TIFF image cannot be taken.) UHS continuous advance: 7 fps. (Image size is fixed at 640x480. AF, AE, and WB are fixed at the first frame. TIFF and RAW image cannot be taken. Digital zoom disabled.) Actual speed may vary depending on the subjects and shooting conditions. * Three frames can be taken continuously in normal and Hi continuous mode. *In UHS mode, the images can be taken as much as possible to the limitation of the storage capacity. For reference, STD: 180 frames, FINE: 160 frames, X. FINE: 100 frames (approx.).
