Hi everyone, newbie here, getting back into photography after a good few years out.

Not ready (cashwise or skillwise) to take the jump to a DSLR but decided a decent point-and-clicky type camera to get back up to speed.

Just bought a Panasonic Lumix TZ-90 in the recent amazon prime sale, got £50 off, hopefully post some pics!

Well I'd like everyone's advice please as it looks like my new camera has a fault - just had a flick through the user manual, decided to take a couple of shots on the automatic settings, the resulting shot had these weird banding patterns on, I even ordered a new SDXC memory card just incase of a faulty memory card. Looks like a return and replacement eh?

Hi Jutsuka. I had that happen once; it was the memory card reader, rather than the card. The reader destroyed all the photos. I imagine the card could be at fault as well, so you might check both. Frustrating to have a new camera and not be able to use it yet.

Hi, thanks for the answer Barb

I don't think it's anything to do with a card reader, I used the wi-fi transfer to my phone and also when I previewed the picture on the camera screen it has that weird banding effect too :(

... think I'm going to just return it and get the TZ100 instead as reading online it has a larger 1in sensor and is better for taking pictures in low light ...

Sounds like a good plan--I actually had a Lumix TZ100 for about a year and loved it. It took really great photos. It's a cool camera for sure. Have fun!

Yeah, I'm pretty much 99.9% going to do this I think, I did balk at the TZ100 being nearly £100 more expensive but in the scale of things if I'm going to get back into photography and I use the camera a fair bit then £100 spread over a year or two doesn't work out much does it :)
