Having problems with your Panasonic Digital Cameras ?

DMCFH3P Need to take photos of moving subjects eg children


Answers :

Try setting the camera's scene mode to the Sports mode. Even if the children aren't actually engaging in sports, they're often moving as if they are. The camera will attempt to freeze the action, catching the children at whatever they're doing.

If you want to deliberately blur the action to give a sense of movement then you'll want something else. Try the Scenery mode. A big advantage of digital photography is that the pictures are free. Experiment. See what works best for you and the impression you want to deliver.

When turned on lense would only retract partially and then turn off. took it apart. I have it to where the camera will now go on, am able to take a photo (all normal) except I cannot get the lense to "attach" to the camera properly. Cylindrical lense. three screws protruding from it. not sure if the lense mounts on a black ring on the front or under the ring. The "in out" mechanism works but it will not grab the lense (cover?) to move out then retract. Seems to need to attach under the ring but

Hi, I have a camera, a Sanyo VPC-T1060 and it's having some problems. It turns on, flashes, takes photos apparently, but the LCD screen won't work. It turns white when I turn it on and when I take a photo with flash black lines appear all in the photo. I've tried finding a reset button, but nothing has been found. As I said, it takes photos, but I need the LCD screen to take a photo so I can see if I messed up and should take more. I'm a photographer and I got this camera as a side kick to my DS

I am having problems with the flash working on my camera. It does not seem to matter if it is in automatic or manual modes. When I take a picture in either mode, when a flash is needed, the flash icon just blinks on the display. The camera will not take any photo when this is happening. The only way I can get my camera to take a photo is manually set the flash to off. Why is this happening?
