Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1 Digital Camera

Download pics

For the first time I am trying to download pics from my DMCFZI. I have a Mac and the manual doesn't give a lot of info for it. When I am in PhotoImpression cannot bring pics from my camera in as it says can't find Twain library in my system. I have no clue as to what I am doing and would really appreciate some help.

Re: Download pics

Clear all the windows from your desktop and click the desktop so you are in the finder, then plug in the USB cable from your computer to camera and turn the camera on. You should see something appear on the desktop which is about the size of a usual icon. It's the camera's memory card "mounting" as a drive. It acts like an external disk drive that you have just plugged in. Click it to open, there may be a few levels of folders. One of them should contain your pics. When you find them, go back one level sothat you can simply drag the file full of pics onto a suitable location on your hard drive, such as the "pictures" folder if you are using OS X. It should start copying automatically. Don't just drag it onto the desktop, as it may disappear when you "unmount" the drive. When you finish copying, close the windows and drag the mounted drive to the trash (don't be scared of that). The trash icon will look like an up arrow if you are on OSX. When the drive disappears from the desktop, you can turn off the camera, then disconnect it.

Re: Download pics

You sould use iPhoto as the default image capture App, and then export to or import from PI after that. This is of course assuming you're talking about OS X (X.2 - Jaguar +, not X.1) and not OS 9. If you are still using OS 9, then I'd hazard a guess that you did'nt install any drivers/extensions for the FZ10 off of the CDs supplied. Have a look and see if there are any - there should be included with the PI software installed. If you're in OS X, then you shouldn't have any problems with it being treated as another external drive. iPhoto should open automatically, and/or display a pop-up asking you to select it as the default App to open when a digital camera is detected.

Re: Download pics

Windows sees the camera as just another drive. With USB connection I open the folder on camera and copy files to a folder on the hard drive on my PC with Windows Explorer. Or I slip it in my card reader, which windows sees as just another drive.

I have a Panasonic DMC-FX550 Lumix camera.The date and time show on the camera when i play the pictures,but when i connect the camera to the laptop and view them i cannot see the date and time.I have gone...


The camera screen is displaying the "metadata" for each picture as you view them. Your computer screen does not. However, when you download your pics to the computer, the metadata goes with them. If you hover your pointer over each file, the info will appear. You can right-click and get even more info. Some photo editing programs will even give you every detail including the lens opening and shutter speed, the make of camera that took the pic, etc.

The old software may not be compatible with the new operating system in your new mac. You could always use a separate card reader to download your pics...works without special software.

Samsung L200, cannot play videos on my mac


You need to download a driver for mac in order for it to play the videos. the driver is called xvid. You need to download the one for quicktime. I downloaded it from http://n.ethz.ch/student/naegelic/download/ and downloaded the binary component. I'm sure there are lots of other places that you can download it too if you search. The download gives you a component that you drag into your quicktime folder which is located in the library folder. I just dragged it in and now the videos play in quicktime.

Horizontal White Lines blanking out pics


I had the same issue with mine recently.  Fortunately it is a problem that Nikon has had with a lot of their cameras and they are fixing them for free.  I just got mine back from Nikon and it works perfectly now.  Go to http://www.nikonusa.com/email_images/nikonusa/service_advisory/coolpix.html
That will give you more info on what you need to do. :)
