Question about Contax TVS II 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

Open Question

Panorama mask sometimes stuck

My camera is the TVS I with the panorama function. I've had one film partly spoiled because one part of the panorama mask stuck in the panorama mode position even though I didn't want the panorama function for most of the photos on the film. Of course I didn't realise the problem until I saw the negatives.

I've since run another 10 films through the camera (while I finished my holiday) and the problem did not recur. I'd really like to know that it's fixed though so I don't have any more surprises.

If the panorama masks could be permanently disabled, that would be an adequate fix for me - I can create any panoramas I need by cropping a full frame.

Hello trescam,   I recommend you check out the www.contaxcameras.com website or look up the model at the Kyocera camera website. All T series cameras had fixed lenses.

I need an instruction manual for a Canon sure shot a1 panorama date camera


Ordinarily the panorama feature is utilized like this: you choose a panorama subject, and move your camera on a straight horizontal line with keeping your shutter down, and trying to capture the whole scenes into the lens. You can also stitch several common photos into one panorama picture(in vertical, horizontal, tile, 360 degree, 3d) with some programs like ArcSoft Panorama Maker.

I somehow put my camera setting onto panorama, how do i change this back to normal?


I think you mean Landscape. Just push the button next to the top display panel. Push it again until it shows the setting you want.
Panorama is not available on the QTsi. Panorama mode blocks out the top and bottom of the frame to give you a shorter picture top to bottom.
Landscape mode just biases the camera towards smaller lens openings to get more of the image in focus. By default, this makes exposure times longer, so use a tripod for landscape images.

Panorama mode?


The panorama mode SmartMedia cards are special function cards sold only by Olympus. I had a 2mb card with this function with my C-820L, however, I found that the panorama software available from companies like LivePicture and others works much better (and is much easier to use), than trying to use the special function card to do the same thing. With the panorama software instead of card, you can use anyone's SmartMedia. Did you buy your C2000Z here in Europe? I'm interested to know what software (if any) was included. I bought mine in the States and brought it back; it included panorama software from Enroute Imaging called "QuickStitch". I haven't used it since I already have "PhotoVista" from Live Picture. The other reason I opted not to use the special function panorama card from Olympus is that it requires the LCD viewer to be on while shooting; as you probably are beginning to discover, the LCD eats batteries, so I avoid it at all possible costs to try and conserve them.

"panorama function"


The panorama function on the Olympus Smartmedia card is a header on the card that allows the Panorama function to work on the camera, displaying "helper" lines on the LCD display and fixing the exposure to the first shot taken. Photos taken with the panorama function can be stitched together using the Camedia Software supplied with your camera. The Camedia Panoramic function is OK, but I prefer the results I get with PanaVue Image assembler. The header is only available on the Olympus cards. But it can be written on any smartmedia card using the smprep/Winhex editor process using and a card reader/writer detailed on this forum. Use the search function for "pan smprep" and you'll find out how.

Panorama picture


You can easily make panorama pictures with your D-390 by “stitching” together multiple pictures. First, activate the panorama mode on the camera by selecting Mode Menu - Camera - Panorama. Take your pictures while making sure to overlap the edges of the images. Download your pictures to a computer and then use the “Panorama” function in Camedia Master to stitch them together. For more detailed information, please refer to the camera documentation.
