DMC FZ20 Aspect Ratio Problems: Correction

\015 I am editing the previous post I made to reflect that my aspect ratio is more like -15%.I'm bummed. For me this is a great camera but for the life of me I cant download a picture that doesn't look like its compressing a 6" human into one who appears 5"8"The edited post follows here:\015\012\011\011\011\015\012\011\011\011Hi.I'm using my friends DMC FZ20 and am having problems with the aspect ratio.Every picture I download (via USB) shows up on my computer as squat. I\015\012have tried using various programs to download and/or open the pictures,\015\012including Picture it, The most recent Picassa, and as well Photoshop.In using photoshop, I see that when I tweak the aspect ratio to ..85 (minus .15%) they seem to be fairly representational.I\015\012looked high and low for a driver and to no avail, I could download one\015\012from Panasonic Australia if I only had an Australian address that could\015\012be verified.I think I need a driver, but perhaps someone smarter than I could tell me if this is true, and if so where I might find one or, if not what I am doing wrong.Thanks Mike\015

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

Shutter speed I cannot remember the aperture, but when I try to take a picture of the moon with my FZ20, even @ 2.8 aperture, I certainly do not have 1/100s shutter speed, but more like 1/10 or even less (P mode). I wonder if there is a problem with my camera ? How can I check that it is correct ? Can someone with experience of moon shot give me some "standard" shutter/aperture so I can compare ?


Rule of thumb I read was f11 and then 1/ISO for shutter speed. This means that if you're using ISO 100, you use 1/100. ISO 80, then 1/80. White balance set to SUN (because moon is reflecting sunlight).\015\012\015\012Wait! My camera doesn't do f11!!! ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera

My Canon G9 was working fine but now movie clips are playing correctly when viewed on the camera's LCD screen but when downloaded to my laptop the image aspect ratio is incorrect and the picture looks squashed. Any ideas?

Blurry pictures Using a point and shoot digital camera, it was set on night mode by mistake. Pictures turned out blurry. The snapshots were taken inside at night using flash in the camera. Probably because in night mode, camera was setting depth of field wrong. So using flash and set in night mode was the problem. But can anything be done to correct the blurry pictures taken in this situation?? Any software known to correct this problem? Thank's, Angela Sapp

The LCD on my DMC-TZ5 looks like someone ran the image through one of those turn-your-picture-into-a-cartoon filters. The problem is present in both record and review modes (and menus too), both for still pictures and video. It does not affect the actual pics/video once downloaded to the computer; it's just a problem with the LCD display. It developed this problem after I took it to a repair shop to fix a stuck lens shutter/cover thingy. Before I take it back and accuse them of screwing somet

Not focusing I'm in the process of attempting to help my friend fix his DMC-FX9 camera. The problem is that it doesn't tend to focus on ANYTHING. It will focus if you zoom in [about halfway)or use macro, but it won't focus if it's not zoomed in. I tried changing the focusing modes, the photo modes. I don't know what else to do, has anyone else run into this problem? He's had the camera for to long to return it, so I'm hoping that I can help him make it usable again.

When I try to zoom in on my camera (a Sanyo VPC-E1090), it says "Lens Error: 0x2119" It used to say something similar to this when I turned it on, but I turned it off and on many times until it corrected it. But I don't know how to correct this problem or if it can be corrected. For background information, the camera is only a couple weeks old, and it has been mainly used at a camp and ranch where it is quite dusty. Thanks for the help.

I put a 4.0 gb sd card into the camera slot correctly. The camera says that the card must be formatted to work correctly. I format the card, but it just tells me I need to format again. There were pictures on the card initially and after the C643 tried to format, I rechecked and there were still pictures. I deleted all the pictures, and then tried to re-format, however I still get stuck in the format again and again loop. What exactly can I do to correct this problem?

Hello I have a canon IXUS 960 IS. Yesterday when I was using the camera it only closed half way when powering the camera off. Now the camera doesn't open fully and when pusing the "play" button the power goes on and off straight away.
