You probably have the burst on. I have done this lots of times. before you get ready to take your shot, push the delete button until the multi-burst icon goes away. this will be represented by what looks like stacked boxes followed by either an H, an L, or a sideways 8 (or infinity symbol). that should solve your taking 2 pictures at once thing.
Your FZ7 is taking two photos at once because the image compression is set to TIFF, which is uncompressed. The camera then shoots a JPEG so you can view the photo on the LCD screen. Change this setting according to the user-manual. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please write a user-revview on your DMC-FZ7 here: http://www.photographyreview.com/mfr/panasonic/6-to-7-megapixel/RVF_348252_5648crx.aspx

Hello there. Memory cards
have a memory, but not the way you are worried about. The cards can be
used over and over again and store the pictures that the camera is
taking as it takes them but if you delete the pictures from the
camera's delete button, the memory card
will be clean and ready to take new pictures and as someone suggested,
you can go into the menu of the camera and use the "select the FORMAT
your card option" which will wipe out all picture information and leave
the memory card clean and ready to record new pictures again. Old
pictures are history, never to be seen by other human eyes. :)
First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.
Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer. Download this photo recovery software http://www.asoftech.com/apr/ Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.
You and a few million others all delete their pictures from the memory card when you should be formatting. Formatting cleans the memory card surface of all data and makes it ready to accept new image/data. You said that the card used to hold over 100 + well it will again if you format. By deleting the picture not all of the information data is erased it leaves what I call a residue not much but still enough that over time it begins to take usable space for picture data. Then as you are finding out the life is shortened, well not life but available storage space. Here is a diagram of the format sequence cause you can see it and read it better then I can type it.

Have fun with that, if it were me I'd run 'er through a couple of times Cheers chat later
What I'm going to suggest is you download your pictures to your computer then format the SD memory card in the camera. What might have been happening is that you began using this card without formatting it first then as you had pictures you didn't want you used the delete or erase button (little garbage can) what then happens id the deleted picture leave a little bit of a file behind which takes space on your memory card. Eventually there is enough dead space that teh camera can't write to the memory card. Memory cards need to be formatted each time pictures ahve been downloaded to the computer. Format the card and everyone is happy.
after formatting the memory is deleted for good and there is no way to get them back ..If they were in a SD card ..you may try with a recovery software ..but almost never they get recovered after formatting ...when you just delete them there are chances for some of them to let a trace ..but when you format a memory unit you practically delete and rearrange the memory unit size again ..(alocation ) ..and there can not be anything left ..
Hi, Transfer all pictures in memory card to computer, disconnect camera form computer, press Menu/ Home and go to memory stick option, select Format to delete all pictures at once and will refresh memory card. You can delete pictures one by one through Delete button on camera.
Regarding supplied software with camera (picbridge or picture motion browser) please click Cancel when it prompts up when camera get connected with computer and click My Computer, click any new hard drive letter that might show as mass storage or similar word (this is memory card storage) and click its folders to copy/ cut the pictures and paste these files in computer. Hope this info will help you. Thanks.
The camera lacks internal RAM or space on the card to do enough caching to delete the pictures. If you were to not exceed about 60% capacity of the card the camera may be able to delete as much as you want on the card. You have to try this.
If the camera has a format option for its memory card you can try it out to see if this will clean up the card.
The other solution is to have a PC computer. Most of these devices are designed only for PC interface.
You may refer to this digital camera picture recovery solution that helped me before. You may also take a look at this camera file recovery blog which contains information for how to recover deleted files from digital camera.
