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 ????

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

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

Cant figure out which outlet is which number on Zilla timer. Turned on the yellow switches and then they turned back on at the time I have set for outlet 7. I thought the yellow ones were 1 and 2 or 1 and...


Open following link for Zilla timers
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#zilla

Zilla timers are unique for home-type timers.
They are two-channel timers, which means that timer has 2 independent programs.
In the case of Zilla, 1 program controls yellow outlets for daytime hours (6am to 6pm). Once daytime hours are over, the yellow outlets are OFF.
The other program controls blue outlets for nighttime hours (6pm to 6am). Once nighttime hours are over, the blue outlets are OFF.

So if you have a light for example, and light is plugged into yellow outlet, then you can program light to turn on-off during the daytime hours only. You cannot also set a nighttime program for the same light unless you plug light into blue outlet.

Zilla timers are for aquariums, where day and night plays important role in life cycle and activity of different types of aquatic beings.

Add a comment and say exactly which Zilla timer you have, and say what specifically you have done so far, and where you are stuck, and what loads you want to control.

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.

LIghts shut off while driving and so did the dashboard lights, they will not come back on.


Seeing how I dont know if this is during the night or day, most berettas have daytime and automatic nighttime lights. The dashboard and the lights are connected together and if the sensor is saying that its daytime they are going to switch. I suggest checking your daytime running light sensor to see if it is getting to much saturation of light while driving at night. This could be confusing the computer and turning off the lights. Cant guarentee that this is fix it but its a good place to start.

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

Blurry white image when pics are taken during broad daylight


Try first to reset your camera. Press the menu button, go over to setup, go down to reset, press the right arrow, highlight reset and press set. Don't worry it won't erase any of the pictures on your memory card. If that doesn't work you can try and manually set the white balance on your camera and I would recommend sending it into repairs if that doesn't work since it's taking nighttime pictures fine. :)

Multiple flash firing


I would double check all your settings - even though you say it is on any flash setting, it sounds like it is using the nighttime flash setting (which does 2-3 rapid fire flashes).

Just go through every setting in the camera, and make sure that everything is set how you really want it, INCLUDING the daytime/nighttime, etc.

On the CAPTURE menu, check your adaptive light setting and make sure that you don't have it tweaked in some way to make the camera think EVERY picture is a nighttime picture.
I'd also check your "EV COMPENSATION" and "WHITE BALANCE", making sure those are set to "auto".

Hope that will work for you - good luck!
