Troubleshooting - The recorded picture is blurred.

Blurry images are caused by 2 main factors: hand-shake and subject movement.

Unwanted hand-shake is the most common cause of blurry images in digital cameras and can be effectively reduced with the use of an optical image stabilizer (MEGA O.I.S.). Blurry images, due to subject movement, can be compensated by increasing shutter speed. To achieve faster shutter speed, it is necessary to increase ISO setting on the camera.

The shutter speed will become slower and the Image Stabilizer function may not work properly when taking pictures especially in dark places.

  • We recommend using a tripod and the self-timer when taking pictures with a slow shutter speed.

Selected Lumix models offer "Intelligent ISO Control" and "High Sensitivity" mode options.

Another cause for blurry images could be poor focusing. To fix this problem ensure that "Auto Focus" is enabled on the camera

  • Users can change "Auto Focus" to suit shooting conditions.
