View Full Version : People turning green
June 10th, 2006, 09:49 PM
I have had a Panasonic Lumix FZ20 for about two years now and haven't had any problems like this before. Just this evening my husband and I were taking photos in TIFF and noticed it was turning people and certain objects green and other various colors. On some of the pictures, it looked like they were almost double exposed. There was the main picture and a line with part of the same picture. We also just purchased a new 2G SD memory card. Any ideas?

does it do this when you shoot in jpeg mode?
still your camera should look fine no matter what file mode your saving in. i hope you fix it as ive played with that camera at work its a nice one

Did it start shifting the picture after you changed the memory card? Format the SD thingie and try again.
FWIW: Your sensor is probably OK. There is some red in the monitor (but it should've been blue, right?), so I believe you're seeing a bitwise shift to the right. It could somehow be linked to the new card, and it would be worthwhile to test another card before sending in your camera for repairs (or change it or whatever).
Finally, if you and/or your husband takes up body building, you guys could create some fantastic 'incredible hulk' type of photos. And you wouldn't have to mess around with gamma rays! (or was it a radioactive spill -- I forgot) Think about the possibilities! :D

Just a thought, my wife has a small Canon P&S and it can be set to automatically change certain colors to other colors. I have not played with it enough to know what colors you can change from or to, but I know you can do it. Does yours do that? If so, maybe that is the problem.
