Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Problem taking pictures after number 48 is shot.

I have a 2 GB memory card installed and the first 45 or so pictures are stored ok on the card but as soon as I try to take the next few the camera acts as if it took the pictures ok but when you try to view them the display is blank. I took the card out and placed it in a reader on my PC and still cannot read the pics. The card formated ok and cannot tell if its the camera or the card. Any one else had this type of problem?
Thanks
Don

Are you using a panasonic SD card? The camera may not function properly when a cheap SD card is used.

I also have a FZ7 and it works better with a memory card of the same brand.

Also, if the card or the camera are old, they may be worn out.

How can i change number of pictures i can take


Your camera has only 10 MB available for picture storage using internal memory. An SD card of even 1 GB (tiny by today's standards) will hold 100x as many picture as your internal memory. If you already have an SD card,

1) Buy a larger memory card. These don't cost much and an 8, 16, or 32 GB card can hold a LOT of pictures.
If you want to increase the number of pictures you can store either with the current card or using internal memory, then you have a couple of other options. 1) change the picture size. Menu -> then up/down arrows to select Picture Size. Press the OK button. Select the option you want (6.1 MP, 5.4 MP, etc). Press the OK button.

Message on screen no memory space in internal memory what does this mean


Hello. Your camera has 32MB of internal memory to store pictures and it's full. Your camera uses the Memory Stick ProDuo memory card and their available in various sizes. A 1 or 2 GB should be fine and will store several hundred pics.

We insert a memory chip into our Kodak EasyShare C190 camera. The read-out informs us that the memory card requires formatting. We click on "OK." The camera goes into a "formatting" mode, then informs us...


Your camera is only supporting SD/MMC Cards (up to 2 GB) and KODAK SDHC Cards (up to 8 GB).
The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card.
You might also need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.1: Menu, Cam settings, Chose AUTO or SD card option Press OK
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

What does Frame No Full mean?


If you look at the top right of your camera screen when reviewing pictures you should see the frame count. As yours is reading "Frame number full" the count should be reading 999.9999 so you need to reset to 100.0000. How to do this is posted in my tips section of my profile under "THE ONLY WAY I KNOW HOW" I have pasted the section below.
Cheers

FRAME NUMBER FULL!!

If you get this message on screen then your counter has reached 999-9999 and the camera will not take anymore pictures until you reset the counter to 100-0001.

To do this follow the instructions in your manual or read on my friends...

Firstly, make sure you have a picture card inserted into your camera and you have saved any pictures on it to your pc because you are about to format the card inside the camera and you will lose any pictures you have stored on there.

Ok. turn your camera on and press the menu/ok button and select "SETTINGS" from the menu.
Scroll through the menus until you find FORMAT. Select this and you will be asked if you would like to continue. Select OK.
Depending on how large your card is (16mb - 1,2 gb etc) will determine how long this will take but it's not very long.
After you have done this your card is now wiped clean of memory and has been formatted to be used for your cameras software.

Next, select FRAME in the SETTINGS menu and set your camera to RENEW and press OK.
Now come out of your menus and take a picture.

Review the picture taken and check the counter reading in the top right of the screen. It should now read 100-0001. The counter has now been reset.

Now go back into your menu and select SETTINGS again and scroll down to FRAME once again. Set this back to CONT (continuous) and press ok. Your camera should be reset and you can now use it.

Note: If you have more than one card you will have to reformat each card because the camera will store and recognise the frame numbers stored on the card and continue using them rather than set them to 100-0001 or will open a new folder on your card and start using this as the new one thus taking up more space on your card reducing the number of shots you can store on it

Busy signal while taking a picture


Have you been taking shots in continuous mode (burst)?  The camera has a built in buffer of fast memory where photos are stored before being written to the slower CF card.  Once the memory gets full the camera will not take another picture unless some of the images complete transfer to the CF card. You will notice a number inside your viewfinder (bottom left) the number goes down when you take a picture that is how much space is left in the buffer when it hits 0 the buffer is full it will go up as the buffer clears.  Note that RAW takes up more space and fills the buffer quickly.
If you get the "Busy" message even after just 1 shot then there is something wrong with either your CF card or your camera and you should take try another card or it to canon for service.

2 GB memory card for digital camera


The number of pictures that a memory card will store will depend completely on the file size of each picture. 750 pictures on a 2gb memory card would be around 2.5mb average each picture, which is more than adequate for basic shots - with a higher resolution the picture size can easily exceed this. Here is the link for the user manual for your camera; http://www.kodak.com/global/plugins/acrobat/en/service/manuals/urg00261/DX7440_GLB_en.pdf Check page 20 - explains how to change the picture taking settings including the resolution/ file size. Also check page 53 - it explains the storage capacity of different memory cards at different resolutions. The manual suggests that the camera can only deal with a maximum card size of 512Mb, so it is possible that although a 2Gb card appears to work, the camera can only utilize the first 512Mb of the card. Hope this helps, please ask again if not :)
