I do not complete understand what you want. My fuss is, you want every picture to be about 1 MB on your memory card. I do strongly advice against this, but you own the camera and so it be. You always can make pictures with a smaller resolution from high quality pictures, but never the other way around. You better shoot highest quality on your camera and later wham the pictures are on your computer down size the ones that are less important to 1 MB.
But you can choose 5 mega pixels with normal compression or 3 mega pixels with fine compression or 2 mega pixels with super fine compression. All these pictures will look fine in an e-mail, or on the net. Even a 6 by 4 inch picture will look fine. Memory cards will cost like 1 dollar pro Gbyte, so my advice is buy a few 8 or 16 Gb cards and shoot in high def.
Your Mercury Cyberpix S-210S has an internal memory of 16MB and can be expanded using an SD/MMC Card up to 512MB.Since the picture you capture using this 2 Megapixel camera has an approximate resolution of 1600*1200 and a size of approximately 400kB you can store only around 18 to 20 photos in an 8MB Memory Card.So if you want to store more pictures you have to insert a Memory Card of bigger capacity.Remember the maximum Memory Card capacity supported on your camera is 512MB.Thanks for choosing Fixya.
8MB or 8GB? If it's actually an 8MB card, you'll be able to put maybe two or three pictures on it, so I'll assume it's an 8GB card.
The DX4530 is designed to work with SD cards. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into SD devices, there are electronic difference that prevent them from working there. SD cards will work in SDHC devices but not the other way around.
SORRY TO SAY, YOU PROBABLY AREN'T DOING ANYTHING WRONG. AFTER MUCH READING ON THIS CAMERA I HAVE FOUND THAT THIS IS ONE OF THE WEAK POINTS, POOR PICTURE QUALITY AND NOISE ON PHOTO'S PLUS LACK OF DETAIL. SEEMS THIS CAMERA IS BEST SUITED FOR " FUN " SHOTS, BUT REALLY NOT AT ALL QUALIFIED FOR ANYTHING BETTER THAN THAT. I HAVE INCLUDED A HOTLINK TO A REVIEW ON THE CAMERA THAT I THINK WILL EXPLAIN MOST EVERYTHING TO YOU. IF IT HAPPENS TO BE FAIRLY NEW, I WOULD RECOMMEND RETURNING IT AND INVESTING IN A BETTER CAMERA. HOPE THIS ANSWERS YOUR QUESTION. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP,REPLY TO ARCLIGHT1217.
It depends on the quality of the image and the number of mega pixels at which you shoot photos. HP Photosmart M517 shoots at up to 5 mega pixels + there is an additional setting called "5MP Best". 5MP setting creates images that are around 1.5MB - 3.5 MB in size. So, assuming 2.5 MB as an average, you'll get around 52 images per 128 MB at the best possible quality. You can do the other math. However, the camera always displays an "estimate" of how many more pictures you can take.
Now if you want to increase the number of pictures you can take you should decrease the image quality. 5 MP regular might give you upto 64 images per 128 MB, 3 MP may give you uptp 128 images per 128 MB (these are all approximations that evaluated based on my experience with this camera). I suggest that you don't go below 3 MPotherwise you'll get images that look OK on screen but not good for printing.
the general rule is a jpeg is halve the mb of the resolution-6 mp =3mb file size-kodak uses a ton of compression and this is the main reason why-put a memory card in a kodak and you pick up about 20-30% more capacity than other brands!
a jpeg when compressed (unopened) would be about 3-4mb from an 8mp camera. This can vary a little. Once opened and uncompressed (ie - in Photoshop or another program that will show its uncompressed file size) the file would be about 21-25mb. If you are not getting good photos printed at 4x6 etc. It could be for a number of reasons.
A: you may be printing the thumbnails and not the actual full res photos. - see if there are duplicate photos in the folder - 1 set high res, 1 set low res.
B: in low light or by changing the ISO manually to a higher sensitivity (higher number like 400,800 1600), quality can be greatly reduced.
C: by zooming in too far. There is a maximum that the glass can magnify and after that the camera enlarges the veiw of the pixels which is the same as you trying to blow up a tiny little area of a photo.
--In combination, low light and zooming in will provide very unpleasing results. The more you zoom, the more shaky the photo will be and the less light can enter the lens
A higher shutter speed and ISO are needed as less light is available.
Try moving in rather than zooming in when in low light. Also use a flash.
In general, dont use or disable the digital zoom for better results. A tripod will help too for non moving subjects.
Take these lessons to the bank even if you think I haven't addressed your problem.
At HQ quality I get at least 81 on a 64 mb. Smaller or larger cards I get numbers proportional to the card mb. I think the 16 number is based on the card that ships with the camera. You can buy as many SM cards as you need and offload them to your computer as you like and reuse the smartmedia.
I think a lot of things depend here.
- how many pictures do you like to take on your trips
- what quality you like to shoot at.
Here are the various number of pictures as described in the manual at 1600x1200. Again this may vary depending on the complexity (colors) in your picture.
Setting 8MB 32MB 64MB
HQ 16 64 128
SHQ 5 22 45
I have found HQ to be very acceptable in terms of trading number of photos for compression. I find the 8x10 output from them to be very good, but then again I am critical yet not overly critical.
If you are thinking that you shoot more, then carry a laptop of have access to one on your trips. Or then again, you can shoot at lower res. i.e. 1280x960 or 1024x768.
