Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Pictures I'm not sure if I have a problem with it or it's just the way Sony W30 is, but i don't like it anyway. Some of the pictures aren't as good as others. You might say I move the camera while i take the pic but no , that's not the case. Some of the steady pics i take (enough to bother me) have a bad quality. Maybe it's something with my settings...i don't know. Some look so good but some of them are simply very unclear. If you have any advise please let me know. Thank You!

Well, if EVERYTHING'S unsharp, it's camera movement. If it's the subject that's unsharp (and flash wasn't needed) it's subject movement, or else your camera is set for manual focus and isn't focused at the right point. Set the flash for AUTO, so it'll go off if needed. Set the focus for AUTO to make sure the main subject will be sharp (with people and animals, if the eyes are sharp, everything will look sharp). While I'm at it, some conditions will fool an autofocus sensor, like shooting through glass or at a subject with no features, like a plain white cloth, for instance. Some cameras have a "focus lock" feature where you can choose what you want to be sharp, hold THAT, and reframe before shooting. Your manual will have specifics on features. If none of the above work, it's probably time to have it serviced (if its worth more than, say US$150 or so).

Cannot download pictures from sony DSC-w30. Computer is refering to a yoadaa.scr problem.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( ).
