20 Most Recent Panasonic Lumix DMC-LC50 Digital Camera Questions & Answers


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.

Press cursor-left (marked with a one-handed clock) to cycle through the self-timer settings. Once the self-timer is set, start it by pressing the shutter release button.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. Slide it toward the contacts if it's not already there. If it is, slide it fully away from the contacts, then toward them. If this doesn't fix it, try another card. If that doesn't fix it, then there may be a problem with the sensing mechanism in the camera which needs servicing.

Try the Panasonic web site technical support team. But if it is more than a year or so old- replacement may be the only option because of lack of spares.

How did you look on the pictures? You connected the camera using USB or do you have a card reader? Anyway, look into the card/camera for example using windows explorer (and not any specialized software for camera), so that you will see all folders and files there. When it says the card is full, it should be there, maybe in different folder. Maybe the file was deleted by camera (but then it shouldn't report the card as full), in that case search google for software to restore it: camera undelete

Lumix cameras use SD memory cards. The picture files are stored on the card which is located in its slot on the side of the camera.

No. These cameras store images in a JPEG format and can be used with any software package that can open a JPEG image.

No. All Lumix® Digital Cameras have a built-in feature to conserve battery power. After a certain amount of inactivity, the LCD will power down to preserve the battery. Simply hit the SHTR button, and the LCD will turn ON.

Unlike 35mm cameras that store images on film, Lumix® Digital Cameras store images on SD Memory Cards, which make sharing and storing your pictures easy and convenient. You simply insert an SD Memory Card into the camera, take pictures until the card is full, and then you can transfer the pictures onto a compatible PC. Once you saved all your pictures, you can erase the card and start all over again.

The DPOF Print Mark Function allows you to sort through the SD Memory Card and select the images you want to print by electronically marking them. You can then print the marked images on any DPOF compatible printer by hitting the AUTO PRINT button.

This functionality allows unlimited consecutive shooting up to the capacity of the SD Memory Card in the camera—ideal for capturing fast-moving objects in high resolution. The number of shots may vary depending on memory card size, picture size, and compression.

Effective megapixels are slightly less than the total number of pixels normally stated for an image sensor. They represent the actual number of pixels used to record an image.

The MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer helps correct hand movement from shaky hands, one of the main reasons why cameras produce blurry images. Lumix® Digital Cameras with MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer technology have a built-in gyrosensor that detects any hand movement and relays a signal to a tiny microcomputer inside the camera, which instantly calculates the compensation needed. A linear motor then shifts the Optical Image Stabilizer lens as necessary to guide incoming light from the image straight to the CCD. You won't even notice it working—all you'll see are the outstanding results!

As you know Panasonic issues Firmware Updates that can be downloaded online, and then installed using a computer and an SD card. Some of those Firmware Updates made the cameras refuse to turn on if the battery was not an "approved" Panasonic battery. This significant change was not publicly announced. Panasonic Lumix batteries are available, but there are also dozens of different generic Lumix batteries available, and there is no reference source as to which generic batteries are "approved." Therefore I would encourage you if you have a Lumix camera that is balking on startup to first try a genuine Panasonic Lumix battery that is fully charged. You may find that the only problem was a generic battery that the camera did not care for. (And of course many "Lumix" batteries sold online are not actually Lumix batteries, but merely counterfeits. They have Lumix markings and are often very good imitations on visual inspection.) Another reason some Lumix cameras will not power up is the memory card. Sometimes people use a newer SDHC type card in an older Lumix, and the camera goes into electronic spasms trying to read the newer card. An older plain vanilla SD card will often solve the problem instantly. If a Lumix camera is not powering up with a 8gb SDHC card there is a good chance it will power up immediately with a 1gb SD card. I frequently recommend the Lumix TZ5 to people starting out, as it is a quality build, metal, not toy-like plastic, has more manual controls than most people will ever use, and the engineering is remarkable. I repair TZ cameras and donate them to homeless shelters and domestic abuse safe houses and college photography students and such, as they have full User Manuals available to download, full Service Manuals available for download in PDF format, have a very gentle learning curve, and produce photographs that are superior to many of the current cameras in the 600 to 800 dollar range. Yet a used TZ5 can be bought for 50 dollars or so. Update the Firmware to v 1.2, never carry it in a leather camera case or pocket or purse or with any cloth of any kind, and you have a superb camera for many years.

Tip

Some Panasonic Lumix cameras are made in Japan expressly for Japanese Buyers. These cameras may be programmed in Japanese and Japanese only. They cannot in any way be converted to English or any other language. Most Lumix cameras have a menu option that allows choice of language. That option is not available in some Japan-originated cameras. I see Lumix cameras often on eBay that are listed as "From Japan". Be careful. I advise you ask the Seller to take photos of the LCD screen of that specific camera being sold with the menu choices showing, to be certain that it is not a Japanese language only camera. Insist also on a photo of the bottom plate. Is it in Japanese? Sellers have told me in the past "You can choose any language easily". Yes, that is true. If the Lumix camera was made in Japan for export. But if it was made in Japan for use in Japan it may not be true.
