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

My Panisonic Lumix was dropped in the lake in its case last summer. I dried it out and it still works great. The only thing is now when I take photos of things that are dark like night time photos or a room painted a dark color small spots show up. I am assuming that those are water spots on the lense. What is the best way o fix this problem? Thanks.


Answers :

If these spots are in different places on each picture, then they are actually reflections of dust particles in the air from the flash being so close to the lens. If they are in the same place on each picture, then they are indeed water spots on the lens.

I just received my Nikon D3100 in the mail today, and I was so excited. When I opened the lens cap on the camera body to put the lens on a small, clear-ish rectangle fell out. It was surrounded by a thin cooper colored frame that is easily removable. It looked like a little magnifying glass so I am kind of nervous. It seems to shoot pictures fine, but some times it tells me the shot is to dark even though I am in full light. It also took black pictures the first few times and if I point it di

I have a Kodak Easyshare model dx5430 digital camera (5mp). It has worked like a champ for years. Last night I was at an event when the image display went dark at picture 31. All preceding photos were able to be reviewed. The camera flash works fine. The camera displays all the other characteristics of a working unit. It turns on and off; the flash works, the menu is accessible - everything. It just doesn't register any photos. Even in close-up mode, there is nothing. It's as if the lens cap is

My camera is producing spots, or freckle-like or shadow-like spots which are noticable on photos such as a clear blue sky photo. The spots are in the exact same place on photos even when I change to different lens. I know the mirror flips up for a photo, but to be safe, I have cleaned it, but that didn't help anything. Purchased camera 11/07.

Hello. I have recently gotten a Sony DSC-s950 SteadyShot. Yesterday, I plugged in the camera and later took it out. But when attempting to view the photos inside of it, all I get is a very small box in the center that looks like a bunch of meshed up colors. When I connect to the computer though, I am still capable of seeing the images. Any help on this would be gladly appreciated.
