Suddenly the pictures I take with my Lumix DMC-ZS3 have dark, shadowy, relatively circular spots on them. The spots are more noticeable when I zoom in. The spots are always in the same places on my images. This is my favorite camera of all time and I very distressed over this issue.

Camera worked great since Dec. 2005. When camera was brought back from the beach, since then photos are not in focus. Looking through the viewfinder is not in focus either. I loaned it to my granddaughter. Was assured camera did not get wet. Have blown compressed air in all crevices on the outside to remove possible sand. Camera had stopped with zoom lens out, not retracted. I replaced battery pack. Everything else seems fine with the new battery pack, but the focus.

I read the lens getting stuck "Switch off and swirtch on again" solutions given by you,other than trying compressed air, but there was no joy (including tapping on the palm). In fact for a fraction of a second, the lens did focus but then again, we were back to normal (non-working mode). Would be grateful if you have any further tips. Thanks

I have a DMC-TZ5. The lens cover mechanism ("barrier") has become "sticky," and now requires an occasional very gentle tap to get open when the camera is turned on. The problem is intermittent and not predictable. The mechanism has NOT been bent or otherwise injured. I have been careful not to damage it. Any suggestions for getting it to work correctly. I've tried flushing out the mechanism with compressed air and that hasn't solved it.

Hi,\015\012\015\012The internal mechanism is stuck and causing this problem. You can't do anything from your end. You need to take to service center to get it repaired.\015\012\015\012Hope this helps.\015\012\015\ ... Digital Cameras

I have a EOS-650, 35mm film camera(not digital)body. I want to purchase a lens for it. I need to know what model number lens and type will be compatable for this camera body? There are several to choose from but only certain types of lens will work on this type camera body. Some examples are EF type and USM type. I do not want to purchase a lens that I will be over paying for or that will not work on this type of body or is not design for it all together.

Lens adaptor I purchased a Phoenix 1300mm lens for my minolta cameras, maxxum 7d digital and analogue. The lens adaptor that was supplied with the lens has no cantacts and when attached to the body and the shutter release pressed, the camera indicates that there is no lens attached. The company that I purchased the lens from in Queensland Australia, and Phoenix themselves no longer seem to be in business so Ihave no results from them.
