Sony M1 photo quality issue

The Sony M1 looks decent and feels quite good in use but the biggest concern is the photo quality. I taught the optics/image sensor in this camera was near identical to the T1/T3/T33, however after looking at the photo samples I can't figure out why the M1 photos look so terrible in comparison(very fuzzy and soft images). Sample photos posted by Jeff Keller at dcresource: http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/sony/dsc_m1-review/gallery.shtml I used to own the T1 and photos didn't look half as bad, but the M1 photos look dissappointing. Bad sample? M1 owners out there could you confirm this?

The DSC-M1 does not like movement. If held very still or with a tripod, the pictures come out quite clear and crisp. If hand held, about 1 in 5 of my photos come out without being fuzzy or soft. Pictures taken with low light also come out "soft".

When i try print my pictures they are coming out blurred. how can i stop this


1) Do they look good on your PC. If so its a printer issue if not, for some reason or other, you're not taking good photos

2) If they're good on the PC and print poorly then its a printer issue. Which can be many and varied.

Usually, the wrong kind of paper. If you use ordinary vice photo quality paper the ink can run.

Size, are you trying to print a small picture, say designed for 6x4 inches out on a piece of A4 at A4 size.

Printer settings, are the set to the correct type of paper and for photo printouts.

Ink, generaly, generic cartriges don't quite match the accuracy of manufacturer cartriges.

Photo prints are very dark and muddy


Hey,

I also have this problem. I even have prints that were made when I first got the printer about 2 years ago, which looked great then and now, and the EXACT same picture from the same program prints incredibly (unusably) dark.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Connecting Projector to High Def Source (e.g. PS3 HDMI)


That projector supports M1-D also which is the digital side of the M1-DA... Anyway, they sell cables that are M1-D to HDMI to which you can hook directly to the PS3. They are decently priced too, less than $20. I know this thread is old, but I came across it due to an issue I am having with my xb31, broken color wheel. Trying to find parts...

DSC-M1 (or MPEG4) playback on TV


Hello, You spoke about burning a DVD. Have you tried connecting directly your M1's TV out (yellow jack) to your TV set? If the quality level is same in direct connection using the MS as original carrier as with the DVD then "ite missa est", otherwise there is an issue with the DVD burning like reencoding of mpeg4 into mpeg2, maybe some quality parameters to tweek in a remote menu....

Can you use the PSP Memory Stick Pro Duo cards on your DC?


Yes! The Memory Stick Pro Duo's are one in the same. (Just out of curiosity, where are you finding them cheaper?) One note, however; as strange as this is, though the PSP plays mp4s, they will not play mp4s from a memory stick pro duo that comes directly out of your M1 camera... I've tried it, I have both a PSP and an M1. (The PSP will show off your M1 still photos, though.) Hope this helps! Susan

Grainy pictures with the Sony DSC - P150


Don't Rush Out Just Yet. Two possibilities. 1. You have the camera set incorrectly. 2. You have the printer set incorrectly.
