Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P52 Digital Camera

1 Answer

DSC-P52 image quality and size

Just bought a DSC-P52, I'm happy with it, but I wonder that image quality is sometimes terrible, even with FINE quality, and first of all I wonder that my images are 2048x1536 and about 1,3MB and the same picture taken with a Nikon (can't remember which one, but as cheap as P52) is 22702x1704, about 500KB and far better quality!!! Is there something I have to do with my settings? Is it possible to take uncompressed pics with P52?

I assume you bought this used, do you have a manual? You can download it from Sony directly (for free); http://129.33.22.12/release/DSCP52.pdf
As far as the photo quality goes, this camera was first sold in 2003, and they have come a long way with automatic cameras in the last 5 years. If some time the photo is better than other times, thinks you should check is that the lease doesn’t have any smudges on it. You would not notice by looking at the screen if there was a finger print on the lens. Be careful about going from cool areas to warm ones this will cause the lens to fog-up
You are shooting in the highest resolution available from this camera, there is no RAW mode.

I have an older DSC-P52 camera and am having trouble


Hi,

There is no reason why the MicroSD adapter shouldn't work in the camera providing the card adapter is the right size for the camera.

I myself use an adapter in my own camera and have no problems with it.


Regards.

Sony DSC P52 and Windows XP


I could be wrong, but I don't believe that it can be - though I have never tried - this is only a guess. Most cameras today, rather than being recognized as imaging devices by windows - are simply recognized as a mass storage device - the same as a pen drive or external hard drive. This has many advantages - but one disadvantage is the one that you mention. Are you using the Sony Software? Perhaps a driver installed from their imaging software will allow the computer to recognize the camera as an imaging device? Other than that, I can't think of anything else.

DSC-P52 Flash problem


The 3 flashed is “Red Eye Reduction” the flashed caused the iris to close which lessen the reflection off the back of the eyeball. These days most computer software can remove Red Eye.
To turn off the 3 flashes you need to go in through the camera set-up. A side benefit from turning this off is that your batteries will last longer :o)
