 Post subject: lumix tz5 flash problem
PostPosted: Sun Apr 04, 2010 9:38 pm 
I am generally pleased with this camera except for an intermittent problem I have when taking flash pix. I get an orange-ish tint to the pictures. I can take two pictures right after another of the same subject, same lighting, etc, and one can have this problem. It can be a zoom, non-zoom, close to the subject, far away. Does it have to do with where in the frame the camera takes its reading to set the flash strength? Is the flash just insufficient? I've tried both the "IA" mode and "normal picture" modes. Thanks for any help.

Thanks, I'll try it.

Can you explain to a novice like myself why this setting could make it so that one picture could be great and the next, in virtually the same conditions, etc, could have this orange tint?

Ai, that's hard to explain I think. Ill try.

Colours change when you are indoors and, for example, in bright sun.
The human eye changes by itself to the colour, but a camera doesnt.
So, youve to tell where the camera is at that moment: Inside, outside etc.
So, the camera can change its ''eye'' to what we're seeing.

... to understand better,
you can choose manual-set for wb,
then, a diagram appears on screen,
with the joystick you can move a
dot throw the diagram and see at
the time changes in colour.

sorry, i edit
yours is tz5 i had fz in my mind
but perhaps work at the same way
