Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Suddenly the pictures I take with my Lumix DMC-ZS3 have dark, shadowy, relatively circular spots on them. The spots are more noticeable when I zoom in. The spots are always in the same places on my images. This is my favorite camera of all time and I very distressed over this issue. I suspect dust has collected somewhere inside the lens where I can not get at it. I have gently cleaned the outside surface of the lens and have blown it off with compressed air but the problem persists, What can be done? Can I mail it back to Panasonic for professional cleaning? Is this possibly being caused by something else? My photos now look terrible.

    Do you live in a hot, humid environment that would cause mold to grow on the lens elements?

SOURCE: I just need a user's manual for a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3.

Go here:

http://www.dphotojournal.com/panasonic-lumix-dmc-tz7-zs3-review-samples-user-manual/

And click on the "manual" tab.

In reality, this is trivial to find, if you just type into google:
Panasonic DMC-ZS3 Manual PDF

It pops almost to the top. Probably would have been less effort than putting the question up here ;)

I was thinking along the lines of some kind of fungus if you were in a warm, humid climate.

SOURCE: My Panasonic Lumix® DMC-ZS3 will not focus

Try checking your settings or menu for a vibration sensor or changing the focus. You might also be using the wrong setting, like indoor, when you're at the beach. You can also change the quality of the pictures and if you are taking still photography or movement.

This is due to a damaged made to the reflectors or to the lence inside. This is difficult to repair.

I have black spots on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 lens camera


If you want to know if these spots are on the sensor. Or you want to exclude this, You could try this:
Put the camera in A priority. (manual mode). Turn the aperture to the highest setting. Greatest figure like f 22 I can't find the exact figure. It could be it is only 8. Then in a bright light, take a picture of a white sheet of paper. The picture that comes out, should be checked on dark spots. If they are there the spots are on the sensor. If you can't find the spots on the white picture, something else is wrong.
