Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Photoes are not sharp

My wife has the Lumix FX-7, but none of the photo's are tack sharp. It's not because of her shaking hands, because mine are out of focus as well. Maybe something to do with the AF-settings?

Hi, I have never had focus problems with my FX7. I suggest you set the AF mode to 1-area-focusing. This mode is quicker than the 9-area-focusing. To eliminate any possibility that the blurry photos are caused by camera shake, I also suggest placing the camera on a tripod (or setting it down on a flat surface) and using the self-timer to release the shutter. At this point you can also turn off the image stabiliser. A well lit outdoor subject is probably preferable for this test, as low contrast scenes sometimes cause the auto focus problems. If the photos under these conditions are still blurry, then you probably have a defective autofocus. Otherwise...

I am unable to get photos in focus, it is as if the silver shutter button is not shutting quickly enough.


If it is a shutter problem, sounds as if the photos are suffering from camera shake. Try raising the ISO rating, or using a wider aperture, to increase the shutter speed.

Cannot focus when dark


Unfortunately, most auto-focus systems require some light to focus with. My cameras have a "focus assist" light that throws a grid of lines out so it can focus. My wife typically covers this light with her hands, and so can't get it to focus in the dark. Check for that.

Unable to get sharp pictures, poor focus with P90


Two things can make a photo non sharp. 1) Bad focus and 2) Vibration while shooting. In general when hand holding a shorter lens your exposure should be 1/60 or faster. Your 7600 may have vibration reduction so it helps with point two.

If you use a tripod you control point two. if the photos are still blurry you either have the wrong focus mode set or possibly the lens is damaged or out of alignment. I cannot tell sitting here. Control Vibration and use a Tripod when in doubt.

You can try a few things to see if they help
  • First is to power off the camera and detach and reattach the lens just to make sure you are getting a good connection for the auto-focus
  • The second thing you want to do is shoot in RAW format to be sure you are able to retain the most information in the image.
  • Make sure the noise reduction is turned off in the camera menu
  • If you aren't using a cable shutter release you can opt to have the shutter delay after pressing the button. This will allow the camera to stop shaking from you pressing the button before it releases the shutter. You can find this option in the menu. Camera 2 > Anti-Shock > 3 sec.
  • Another consideration is the quality of the lens you are using. The G10 has great glass while a kit lens from Olympus may not give the fidelity throughout like the G10 does. You can try another lens if you have one available to see if this is the case. The G10 is a single purpose camera that has a great lens on it. The E-500 may need a better quality lens on it in order to achieve the sharpness you desire. Olympus makes a great 50mm macro that has an f2.0 brightness.
  • You can also set the camera to manual focus and then choose to do focus bracketing. This is a little more involved and you can find out how to do so in the manual for the camera.

Ideal settings for wildlife shots with lumix g1


use a very fast shutter speed with a low "F" number to fuzz out back ground, dont use auto focus if you can help it, focus by hand but its got to be spot on every time if its moving then auto focus may help
(a little bit!) but its more of a pain than you may think, if you need long lenses, use a good solid trypod and hang a hevy bag of sand under it
most importent thing is,,, you must keep well out of sight and very quiet und up wind of what you wont to take pitchers of if it smells you or heres you, it will be gone!
think of it this way,,,,, you need to shoot you dinner and you only got one bullet left,, miss it and you go hungry and get greef all night off the wife too?? now quietly go and have fun

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC FX07. My photos are blurry 90% of the time. What are the best settings to put in on to get the best quality?


I have looked around, and it appears that there are others with the same problem, with that same model. Either the camera has an issue, or there are picky settings on the camera.

Start with the obvious. Make sure the lens is very clean. Use lens tissue, or a very soft, lint free cloth. Try that first and see if there is any difference.

When you are taking pictures, take advantage of focus lock. You center the subject you are focusing on, then push down the shutter button half way. Then while holding it half way, you can reposition the camera and take the picture. The focus will lock on whatever you first clicked on. It works really cool.

Make sure the stabalizer is turned on, the little hand with lines around it, like shake.. Make sure that is on 1 or 2 mode and not turned off. Try all three and experiment with that.

Lastly, make sure you use your scene modes. Moving subjects need the sports mode, people portrait mode, etc. That adjusts the shutter speed and lens opening for the right type of photo.

If you have Adobe Reader, here is a link to your manual, you can download it to your computer.

DSC-S75 focusing problems...


Without seeing a photo, here are a few possibilities. 1) Shutter speed too low (camera shake). 2) Camera is focusing on something in the foreground. 3) Focus not locked, low light, low contrast scene. Items 2 and 3 can be corrected by manual focus. Set the focus to 1 click below infinity, depth of field will insure everything is in focus. For item 1 remember that the shutter speed must be 1/125 sec or faster at full zoom to avoid camera shake.
