I have a Panasonic DMC-LZ3 a 2005 unit that up until very recently I was able to shot over 100 pics on internal memory alone..  It always shpt a bunch so I never invested in a chip.  My other half used it a couple of time now it only shoots 5-6 then its memory is full.  I have read a few blogs where they speaks of max resolution so you can print really large photos, which I think it was inadvertently switched to.  The manual is usless!!!  I need some help with the setting to get it back where it was.

 

All ideas appreciated!

Steve's Digicams site gives better instructions, this is their Record Mode and Screens page that hopefully will match your model and how to set to lower resolution.

As somebody else said here a couple of years ago "It's all that global warming landing on your head, and paths, and driveway !".

 

Go into 'Menu' and look at the shooting options 'Image size' and 'Image qualtiy'. I keep mine set to 'Large' and 'Fine' but this produces large files, about 5MB per photo. Then again, I don't have any internal storage in my camera at all, I normally run with an 8GB card fitted.

I'm one of those who's been through a lot of SLR/DSLR's and I would recommend the Panasonic FZ1000 or FZ200

Chris Cosgrove, just a FYI, my Casio Exilim 5  point and shoot is about the same manufacturer's date as OldPhil's and some higher capacity SDHD cards can be problematic with 'card error' messages right in the middle of shooting, probably due to speed/storage abilities beyond the mechanics of the cameras of that time.
But do absolutely agree, relying on internal memory of these older cameras never made sense, regardless of shooting resolution. Memory cards are cheap and convenient, higher resolutions are always better regardless of subject matter and intended purpose.

Quick edit: mentioning 'speed' above, I do recall buying a Sandisk Ultra card that my camera's mechanics
Iiterally choked on as it was not designed for those when built. I gave it to a friend who had a newer camera.
