    I don't understand what controls this, my 6 sony's all do 72. You Pany does 72. I noticed my scanner does 2400 (which is the actual scan resolution). It does not seem to matter in the final result, I get the quality I expect when printing. When you see the resoultion of 72 what is the image size, on the Kodak?

  • Ed Sargent Nov 06, 2008

    The numbers are what I expected, I think you are ok as is the 72 is not hurting the quality of the Pany's images it is only affecting the image size as displayed. Since nobody ever print at 72 dpi those numbers are meaningless anyway. I do wonder why you have the camera set on 2 mp when it will shoot 5 mp?

  • Ed Sargent Nov 12, 2008

    MP = Mega-pixels. Each camera has several settings, for instance mine has settings of 9, 5, 3, and VGA (.6). The lower settings have reduced image quality (IQ). The only reason to reduce the setting below the highest setting would be to save space on storage.

  • Ed Sargent Nov 13, 2008

    1. how did you know what my MP setting was?

    You stated 1600 X 1200 which is the standard 2mp size for all cameras


    2. Within my manual (with the camera) there is not mention of mega pixels in the index. What do you think?

    According to a review I found of the DMC FZ5 it has settings of 2560 X1920 (5mp), 2048 X 1536 (3.1mp), 1600 X1200 (2mp), 1280 X 960 (1.2mp), 640 X 480 (.6mp VGA) and 1920 X 1080 (HDTV).

    A quick scan of the manual I found on the Internet the instructions appear to be on page 74. The manual I'm looking at can be found at http://www.mediacollege.com/equipment/ma...

I need to take a 300 ppi/dpi photo


Hello,

Nice camera :) However it "only" takes pictures up to 180 ppi. You can't change it.

It might be easier to take your pictures as normal and then change their resolution to 300ppi in photo processing software like e.g. photoshop / photoshop elements (commercial) or gimp or irfanview (free).

NB, while it's not going to help here much, you might find this reading interesting:

How do I increase the dpi on TZ5


Hi - When talking about resolution in digital photography there are two main meanings.
One is the "pixel count resolution" and the other "embedded resolution". So for example your camera could record 2272*1704 as the actual pixel count resolution and set 72 as the embedded resolution that tells other software (for example photoshop) what the intended use of the picture will be. 72 ppi is the default for web pictures. You can change this in photoshop by going to the "Image" tab & select image size. The window that opens will show you the pixel dimensions i.e. pixel count resolution and the document size & resolution 72. You just change it in your software to 300 for printing. In Photoshop you can change the default to 300 by going "edit", "preferences", "units & rulers" and setting the values for "new document preset resolutions".

So for your camera the embedded resolution is 180 which you can only change in your PC software.

Changing the resolution on my camera before i go to photoshop


using the RAW setting will give a higher quality photo, the other formats compress to jpeg causing you to loose some of the original photo information. the ZoomBrowser EX program allows you to edit the RAW image, I recommend getting the large prints done at Kinkos or some place like that. I've gotten poster size prints done that look very clear. Use a tripod to combat camera shake, it is very apperent at that size of print. Also a low ISO to help reduce noise.

Canon 5D resolution question


The 5D has a 12.8 mega pixel sensor.

2 x 4 ft. is 24 x 48 inches, so you have to cover 1152 sq. inches using 12.5 million pixels.

Spreading 12.5 million pixels over 1152 sq. inches means 10,850 pixels per sq. inch. Taking the square root gives you a maximium resolution of 104 pixels per inch (or 'dpi')

Photoshop will allow you to increase the resolution by a process known as 'interpolation' .. increasing to 300 dpi using Photoshop before printing will give a better result.

NB. Depending on your printing process, you may end up dealing with files up to 500Mb in size ....

Resolution


Many cameras will take pictures at only 72 dpi. Changing the resolution causes the camera to change the size of the picture in terms of pixel dimension (ie 800x600 vs 640x480) but always at 72 dots per inch. A photo editing program like Photoshop can change the resolution to whatever you need.

Canon Rebel xti vs Photoshop!


What you are seeing is the difference between "pixel count resolution" and "embedded resolution". So in your example 2272*1704 is the actual pixel count resolution as recorded by the camera & 72 is the embedded resolution that tells the software (in this case photoshop) what the intended use of the picture will be. 72 ppi is the default for web pictures. You can change this in photoshop by going to the "Image" tab & select image size. The window that opens will show you the pixel dimensions i.e. pixel count resolution and the document size & resolution 72. You just change it to 300 for printing.

Unlimited consecutive shooting function


This functionality allows unlimited consecutive shooting up to the capacity of the SD Memory Card in the camera—ideal for capturing fast-moving objects in high resolution. The number of shots may vary depending on memory card size, picture size, and compression.
