Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera ?

How tu use video recording..

\015 I have Lumix DMC-TZ3 from 2 weeks and I cant find how I can record movies.Please somebody can help me?Thank you\015

Answers :


The picture that I posted shows a TZ3 mode dial. I added a blue arrow to point out an icon on the mode dial.
1. Turn the mode dial on the camera so this icon is selected.
2. Switch on the camera.
3. Aim the camera at your subject, press the shutter button halfway to focus, then press it fully to begin the video. (Just as you would take a picture.)
4. To stop taking video, press the shutter button fully again.

~When a video starts being taken, its current length will appear on the camera's LCD screen.
~Videos take up more space on the memory card than do pictures.
~If an SD memory card becomes full while recording, then the video will stop automatically.
~Videos can be played back on the camera's "PLAYBACK" mode. They can also be viewed on a TV or downloaded to a computer.

I purchased this camera about a month ago to prepare for my trip to Egypt. The pictures come out nice, but when I recorded a video, I can hear a sound like someone is walking on a squeky floor.

I have a jvc everio gz-mg157u hdd 30g camcorder/camera. My promlem is that the videos that are stored in the camera I can not find.

Have just inherited this digital camcorder. Want to record video onto card rather than tape so bought a new card today. Tried to use for the first time but on pressing the record button I get a red 10 second countdown on the screen and then it beeps and the recording stops.

I have a new Panasonic DMC-FZ38 digital camera and I seem to have a problem capturing video footage to a PC. I can record video on the camera and it plays back on the camera quite satisfactorily.

The VCR orked well the last time I used it a couple of years ago. It has been sitting in the rack for at least two years and was not ever used for more than a couple of weeks since new. I bought it for a video project and never used it after that. Now, when playing tapes, it runs at a speed faster than it was originally recorded at and the tracking lines are everywhere. I used a head cleaning tape but this has not changed anything. I opened the cover and it free of any visible dust and lo

My camera (a Canon PowerShot SX10IS, if it matters) has this tendency to move in and out of focus when I'm using the video recording feature. For example, I can start the video by filming a stationary object (let's say, a person speaking at a podium a meter or so away) and the video will be in focus. However, even though the person in the video isn't moving except for subtle hand gestures, the camera seems to start to try to focus on something else deeper in the background or closer in the foreg
