Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Grainy Pictures I take pictures of hockey games- due to the low lighting and the speed of the game they come out blury and grainy. I have tried the custom white balance, no help. Also I went from 800 ISO down to 400 with not much difference. Any Help? Thanks, Chisel

I have an earlier version of this camera: a minolta  dimage 7. While your camera is better(later) than mine beyond ISO 100 these cameras tend to be noisy.  The only solution is to asscpt the noise since hou will need a high ISO in order to use an acceptable shutter speed  and use a noise reduction program (noise ninja, neat image, helcion noise filter). One of these may be free- i think helcionbut aside from changing to a DSLR this is the best solution

Grainy pictures


If you are taking pictures in low-lighting conditions without flash, then the pictures will appear grainy. Set the ISO to a lower number (try ISO-100 to start with) and use the flash to compensate for low-light conditions.
This should improve the grainy appearance of your photos.

Bad indoor pictures. When I take indoor pictures and it says to use the flash I do but then my pictures turn out dark/grey. Then I try it without the flash and they are brighter but then blury. I even...


The flash has a range of up to around 10 feet at the wide end of the zoom, down to 6.5 feet at the tele end. Maybe you are using it on to big a distance or at to low ISO? Try setting the ISO to 800 and see if it helps. images get a bit more grainy at 800 ISO but are also less prone to camera shake, if you use it without the flash. The camera goes as high as 1600 ISO, but images get very grainy at that setting.

Fujifilm finepix f20le. circular grainy pic loss of sound


First go to the SETUP menu and make sure that the PLAYBACK VOLUME setting is set to a value greater than 0. Try increasing the shutter speed of any photos as CCD's will notoriously produce grainy images on slow shutter speeds. Grainy videos will indicate poor light, camera shake during filming or moving too quickly so the autofocus cannot function correctly, or using too low a resolution and will be especially noticeable at 640 x 480 when viewed on a large high resolution screen. If all the above make no difference then you may need to get the camera serviced.

Grainy pictures...iso problem for olympus stylus 820


Without ISO you will not be able to take pictures.
ISO is the old ASA which is related to film speed
ISO 50 is very slow film speed and may result in blur and some grainy appearance , same as if you PUSHED ISO up to 800 in low light.

Try setting it to ISO 100 and see if that helps.

You can still select auto, but its related to either shutter or aperture priority in relation to the set film speed ( now ISO 100)

Polaroid i1035: Bad quality pictures, appear grainy and fuzzy


The grainy effect has to do do with the ISO setting, try adjusting that. A higher ISO is generally better for darker conditions. I have noticed that this camera frequently takes grainy images.

Grainy pictures at night


Hi

Low light without a flash will always cause grainy pictures unless you have a very high end camera that can shoot at very high ISO speeds like 6400 and up.

Try changing the camera from the green camera 'auto' setting to "P" and then press the Menu button (I think it's Menu) and look for the different mode settings. There should be one for Night or Night Portrait or similar, I can't recall Sony terms and I don't have one here to check sorry.

Your other option is to use the flash, try it with Red Eye turned on if possible.

Hope this helps.

Pictures come out very grainy


Most likely, you've set the ISO value higher than necessary for most circumstances. You may have done this deliberately to catch some fast action, or you accidentally hit the ISO button without realizing it. If you reset to lower ISO settings, your graininess problem will probably disappear.

The faster the "film speed", whether you're using real film or a digital camera, the more grainy the pictures will be. ISO is the film speed. The ISO speed is set by pressing the ISO button (just above the "FUNC SET" button); it cycles thru AUTO, HI, 80,100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, then back to AUTO. If you've set the camera to AUTO on the control wheel opn the top of the camera, then you can only select ISO of AUTO or HI (which is slightly faster than AUTO).

The higher ISO settings are useful in low light conditions or to catch fast action, but those higher settings should not be used otherwise because of the increased graininess.

I hope this helps you.

Very grainy pictures indoors at night


If you can adjust the ISO sensitivity to a lower number then the graininess will be reduced.

However, by reducing the ISO, you will need a slower shutter speed and a larger aperture. A tripod, table or other support may be necessary.

The "noise reduction" setting on the camera can also be adjusted a step up.

Taking pictures at full resolution and fine compression will also help.

Overall, at least try lowering the ISO, and using the flash brighter.

Grainy pictures


grainy pictures are possibly casued by a very high ISO (sensativity) setting, you should be on 100 or lower for best normal shots. Higher settings are for low light and custom shooting in strange lighting or aperature/shutter speeds. Try full auto setting.
