My Camera has started adding alot of noise to all my photo not matter if its well lighted or not? why? help please...


This is GENERAL INFO for most small sensor CoolPix Cameras. You should use ISO 400 or LOWER. Any ISO over 400 will have Grain in you photos. If it is dark you need a tripod or surface to place the camera on with self timer.

You get ugly GRAIN with HIGH ISO... You get lots of NOISE with long shutter speed. I can take Good Photos at night (when I use a tripod) with ISO at 400. I can take 1 second exposures and they look fine. You cannot take good night photo without a tripod.

Why does the flash come on when there seems to be enough light


I am assuming that you are in manual mode. It's on board computer has decided that to prevent camera shake or motion blur that the flash was needed. Now there are things you can do if you don't want the flash to fire. If you use one of the manual modes and set your ISO to a high ISO(800ish) and make sure your f-stop is set for the lowest number your lens will accept.
Play around and see what works for you. Chris

All of my shots are grainy--really grainy. My old 8 mpx camera took beautiful, tack-sharp photos. This is 14 mpx and it looks terrible. Someone suggested that maybe the contrast needed to be adjusted ...?...


Unfortunately with higher mpxs sometimes you pay for it with higher noise levels. The smaller pixels are more sensitive and can cause noise. A couple of things you can do to help control the noise is make sure your pictures not underexposed, you may need to bump up you exposure compensation a little as long as you don't end up too bright.
You can also try to shoot with the lowest ISO setting your camera has. High ISO = NOISE!
Last you can run your photos through a noise reducing program such as"Noisware" their community edition is free. http://www.noiseware.com/download_nwsa.aspx
PS Contrast settings will do nothing for noise.

I want to know the iso speed


Hi. You can set the ISO through the menus on P.86 of the manual,

Instead, see P.89 of the manual, you can assign ISO to the left/right keys,
This is so that you can cycle through the ISO settings in REC mode,

You can also specify what settings, including ISO, are put in place when you next switch on, see P.90

If you do not have access to a manual you can download it free at:-

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Casio-EX-Z30-Digital-Cameras-manual/id/200ag205/t/2/

In playback I don't think you can display on the camera the ISO of the images which you have captured, but the EXIF data, including ISO, can be viewed on PC with an EXIF reader/viewer/editor or using an add-on to Firefox browser call FxIF.

Hope this helps!

I bought this canon rebel t2 film camera recently and used film with ASO 400. Portraits look ok. but the landscapes, especially the sky area look dark and grainy. I used ef 28-135mm usm lens. Any solutions...


That's odd that the pictures would be coming out under exposed unless the previous owner has gone into the camera functions and switched the ISO from auto to manual. Another reason is that the exposure compensation has been activated and set for - exposure

Under "normal" use the camera will read the DX code on the film canisters and adjust the ISO automatically. However the previous owner may have shut this off in preference to setting the ISO manually. Even though you have ISO 400 in the camera the ISO on in the camera setting may be ISO 1600.

Checking for the Auto ISO and exposure compensation is fairly easy as you can see the film canister through the film window or you know you have loaded 400 speed film. on the LCD panel at the back of the camera is an ISO icon and exposure compensation.

Make sure the ISO for the camera is the same as what you have loaded and if the exposure compensation is to the right of 0 then the resulting picture will be dark. Move this back to the Zero.

I wasn't able to find an exact manual (if you don't have one) for your camera but have found a camera with similar. Here is a ling for that manual.

I don't understand the numbers of the drive ISO ?


You can get a manual from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=314&modelid=12929

AF allows you to select between the various autofocus modes. WB allows you to set the white balance, to compensate for the color of the light. Drive allows you to select the drive mode, from single to continuous to remote. ISO allows you to set the sensor sensitivity, similar to choosing film speed for analog cameras.

Color noise on pics


Camera is setting a high ISO, probably due to low light. Higher film speed results in higher grain. Try turning off high speed shooting mode which ups the ISO so cam can set a higher shutter speed. Or, select the P setting (Program) and select a pre-set ISO under 400.

High iso on s5200/5600


just wish the anitblur was a seperate button that you could turn on or off at anytime/any mode. I assume that is how image stabilization works on other cameras. I'm just waiting for a good batch of sample pics from a normal user.
