How to I make the Digitial and Intellegent work.

Hi there John and welcome

Can you tell me exactly what you are referring to with Digitial and Intelligence?

What is it you are trying to achieve?

Please let me know

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
My Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90 has both a x30 and x60 zoom.
How do I use the camera menu to make the x60 work?
When I go to Menu Camera and scan down the "iZoom" is not bright and therefore I am unable to switch it on.
John Z

ok, what you need to do first is select picture sizes with EX

Go to menu, Record, Picture Size

Then choose one with EX

Then choose picture modes, P, A S or M and you can go up to 60x Zoom

Let me know how you go please

With a setting of "M10m" I am still unable to use the "iZoom" or "Digital Zoom"
John Z

And which mode are you taking a photo in?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Mode P
John Z

look at page 142 here

And make sure you are meeting all requirements, as one will be missing to get 60x zoom

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I have the Manual and have read the pages, but I still CANNOT access "iZoom" or "Digital Zoom"
John Z

Can you remove the battery please then hold the shutter button down for 60 seconds then release.

Wait 5 minutes, put the battery back in and turn it on.

Tell me please if it now operates correctly

Thank you

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Done all that and still does not operate.
John Z


I want you to reset the camera please

To do this, go to Press [ MENU ] → [ Setup ] → [ Reset ]

Once done, tell me if it then functions please

That is the answer.
Thanks for your help and attention.
