I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ3 I have used the Exposure compensation aplication, and I find the third exposure is the same as the first in low light situations, eg F3.3 1/8, F3.3 1/10, F3.3 1/8, or with a +/- 1 EV it is F3.3 1/8, F3.3 1/15, F3.3 1/8. In other situations the three exposures are different eg F3.3 1/160, F3.3 1/250, F3.3 1/200. Can anybody explain why the low light situations should be different?

Re: Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ3
I guess and do mean guess the sensitivity tails off sharply in low light- and it is operating at the limmits of its capability therefore no further compensation is possible.

In the Flash menu, there is an option for Forced Flash Off. Press the Flash button to the right of the Menu button. Then use the up down arrows to move to this option. (It's at the bottom of the list.) Then press Menu to set the option to the Flash Off. This is shown on page 36 of the manual for the DMC-TZ3. I found a copy of the manual here: http://panasonic.ae/en/manuals/DMC-TZ3.pdf .
Your pictures may have exposure or blurring issues in this mode. The shutter will stay open longer to attempt to gather enough light.
In the "REC" menu, you can set the quality to the "fine" setting.
If you want to under or over-expose, on the 4-way controler, press the top button (it will have a +/- on it). This is the exposure compensation setting. For brighter pics, set a number to the right....for darker pics, set a number to the left. You'll need to experiment...a little goes a long way.
1. Check the "exposure compensation"...you may have accidentally moved it to a higher number. It's the top button in the 4-way controller.
2. If that checks out ok, go into the menu and find "reset" to return to factory default settings.
Maybe someone has adjusted the exposure settings, Select setup and reset the camera to factory defaults or: I don't have a TZ3, but on my Panasonic camera pressing the up arrow while in camera mode takes me to the exposure menu, you could try checking that.
From your description, your problem may be using the same card in two different cameras. You will need to format the card in the Lumix to get it to work properly. This will erase the card so download any important pics first. Then, stop trading cards between cameras.
Try change the exposure of the camera: start the camera, set the dial to 'I' (automatic iso), then press the 'up' menu near the display until 'exposure' settings appear. move the slider to the left/right, according to your preference. I reccomend using the automatic iso for taking pictures, it automatically adjust exposure.
