Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10 Digital Camera

Type of setting in the night

I have taken pictures in daytime and results are very good, but I am not able to take pictures at night. I have taken many pictures at nighttime in 'P' mode but all are very bad. Most of the subjects have lights (e.g. small boats in sea with many decorative bulbs or big hotel building with lights all around) and these pictures are really bad. Please suggests me what type of setting should I select to take pictures in night mode ????

Re: Type of setting in the night

I have had some success with going to A/S/M mode and setting: -ISO to 100 or 200 (depends how dark it is) -A/S/M mode to 'S' -Then press the exposure button and set the shutter speed to something very sloooow, even to maximum if it is dark enough -Put your camera on a tripod or something stable where you are not going to be touching it when it takes the photo -Set the time delay feature by pressing left on the control panel and use the short timer to make sure there is no movement when the shutter goes -You may need to pre-focus using manual focus, as the FZ10 is bad at auto-focusing in the dark. To do this, I usually set the focus mode to manual by moving the switch on the left of the lens, then I focus on my subject if it is bright enough to see through the viewfinder, otherwise try to find something that is about the same distance away that you can see and focus using the focus ring

Re: Type of setting in the night

Try using the night mode on your FZ10, but use a tripod.

It doesn't take all the pictures at night, i get some, maybe 1 or 2 then it skips and might take 1 more. takes great daytime photos. is there anything that can be done to fix it?


Hi mmcgee6,

You need to check the settings in the camera , as to whether it's selected on night mode or not , when you use the camera at night , and particularly if the light is not as bright as day light.

There should not be any problem with the night shoots from the camera if there is no problem in the day , it's just the settings that needs to be changed to night mode.

Also a good idea would be to set the flash settings on Auto instead of Off , or other settings , this will adjust the camera as per the environment in which you are clicking your pictures.

Hope this helps ....:)

My digital camera has some problems in daytime the pictures taken were blurred but at nighttime the pictures were pretty ...


You have to ensure that the camera is not set to night mode as this can affect the quality of the pictures you take during day time.
De-activating the night mode will allow it take normal pictures during daytime.

The night setting results in blurry pictures


The grain is from underxexposure and the blur is from hand shake caused by low shutter speed. Try using a tripod. Also, change from auto settings and shoot in manual mode with a high ISO and low aperture setting. Good luck!

Problem on outdoor daylight picture taking


hi

try the Exposure button [+/-] will generally be disabled in auto mode

try changing mode to 'P' (Program) mode and then change the exposure by pressing the +/- button and then you would generally see a scale on the LCD now press the left button to decrease the exposure

better more is to reset the camera to the default settings this would set the aperture, shutter, Exposure, LCD brightness and otehr settings to defaults and this would save from any unwanted changes than required

cheers
pls rate if it was any help

Daytime photos are very white and has horizontal lines.


Hi!

If ever you haven't tried resetting the camera, please try it first. It's possible that you or somebody using the camera may have set something on the camera's setting to have this result ( this is based on my own experience :D ).

Anyway, here's how you reset your camera:

This will basically set the camera to default settings. If there is no hardware problem with the camera, this will correct the problem. However, if the problem persist after the reset , you may want to bring the camera in a service center for repair.

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

It sounds like the CCD unit has gone bad on it. Usually it's more to repair than the camera is worth.
