Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I purchased DMC-FZ28 k August 2008. I am not a photographer and used iAuto function and other preset modes. The pics come out "flat" "dull" and lack vibrance and color depth. This is made more obvious when pics are compared to other pics I have taken (older Canon powershot camera) and pics taken by others using their less expensive cameras. This has been this way since new and applies to all sorts of pics - inside, outside, light, flash, etc. I have tried various settings, experiment


Answers :

I don't know where you are. In the UK, I think I would have tried to take this back to the vendor for a replacement or refund early on (in the first year of ownership), but in other countries your rights may be different. Two years on is a bit late to make a warranty claim or return as faulty. Perhaps Panasonic's offer to exchange the camera may be your best option.

If you perform a Google search on the camera make and model you will find a number of consumer reviews, written by ordinary owners, as well as reviews by professionals. This may help you decide whether the model has problems or it is just the one you own.

When I look at pics I've taken the sky is always flashing (black, then sky). I know that this shows that the exposure won't work for the sky. Is there any way I can turn that off so that when I review my pics I don't have to see it flashing?


The best solution in most cases is to reduce the exposure so as to avoid the blown-out highlights. However, if you simply want to get rid of them on the screen, press up/down on the multiselector to select a view you prefer. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera

Help, I took about 80 pictures on my olympus sp-350 camera, an xd card was in it. Took my camera out the following night and half way through it seemed as if the camera switched to taking pics on the card/ internal memory (not sure which!) because I could only view the last ones taken and not those before. I have been onto photo rescue and that only recovered the ones that were on the card. I pray to God I haven't erased them they were taken on a special holiday in fRANCE! PLEASE help

Uploading pics I can't upload any pics to my computer anymore. I've made sure I've updated my drivers;it's showing a canon powershot driver. I reinstalled the program with the canon utilities CD.

I've taken good care of the camera and have had it since last christmas.

''incompatible jpg'' I took the Kingston memory card out of my CanonA720IS digital and moved my pictures to IPhoto on my Mac so that I could edit them. When I finished editing, I used the same Promaster card reader/writer to return the pics to the memory card, since hooking up my camera to my tv is the only way I can show large pics to my entire family at once. But when I checked them in the camera, about 20% showed only a thumbnail with the message ''incompatible jpg,'' or had just a question m

I have never lost any pictures that I have taken with my Canon SD500 camera with a memory card but I ended up buying a 2 GB memory card while in Hawaii and was able to take pictures.
