8mb Lumix camera....but 3mb pictures
\015 Just curious as I am printing a ton of pics....why they are a range of 2.4-4.1mb...when I have the camera set at 8mb?\015\012the quality of my 4x6 & 5x7 are not so great because of it.\015\012bummed.\015\012can u help?\015\012thanks\015\012elaine\015
A jpeg when compressed (unopened) would be about 3-4mb from an 8mp camera. This can vary a little. Once opened and uncompressed (ie - in Photoshop or another program that will show its uncompressed file size) the file would be about 21-25mb. If you are not getting good photos printed at 4x6 etc. It could be for a number of reasons. \015\012A: you may be printing the thumbnails and not the actual full res photos. - see if there are duplicate photos in the folder - 1 set high res, 1 set low res.\015\012\015\012B: in low light or by changing the ISO manually to a higher sensitivity (higher number like 400,800 1600), quality can be greatly reduced.\015\012\015\012C: by zooming in too far. There is a maximum that the glass can magnify and after that the camera enlarges the veiw of the pixels which is the same as you trying to blow up a tiny little area of a photo.\015\012\015\012--In combination, low light and zooming in will provide very unpleasing results. The more you zoom, the more shaky the photo will be and the less light can enter the lens\015\012A higher shutter speed and ISO are needed as less light is available.\015\012\015\012Try moving in rather than zooming in when in low light. Also use a flash. \015\012\015\012In general, dont use or disable the digital zoom for better results. A tripod will help too for non moving subjects. \015\012\015\012Take these lessons to the bank even if you think I haven't addressed your problem.

Retrieving file With my Panasonic Lumix TZ3 and a panasonic SD card (new) I took about 200 pictures (7mp resolution). The last 100 or so, yield the response "no preview available" even though the computer (and Photoshop) indicates that they are about 3mb each. In the middle of this group of pics, one file opens successfully. Unfortunately when PS downloaded the pics I also had it erase them from the SD card.

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS1. Once I transfer the media cards pictures onto the computer and then re-insert the card into the camera, all pictures seem to have been deleted.

I have a Lumix FZ35. I loaded some still pictures from a 4GB memory card onto my PC. After selecting several pictures into a new folder I began to edit several of the pictures to get them just right. When I then loaded them back onto a 2GB memory card in order to play them as a slide show on my HD TV through the camera, all the pictures that I cropped (a feature that doesn't exist on the camera itself) came out blurry and an error "Thumbnail is Displayed" reads across the picture.

I have a 1GB SD card that has some great pictures of my daughter's soccer team, I can view them on the camera (Lumix FZ20), but when I put the SD card in my laptop or connect the camera to any other computer, I can't find the pictures. My Computer shows an EMPTY folder titled "MISC" and a shortcut item (that does not work) but no other folders and NO PICTURES! But they are there and I can view them on the camera.
