Polaroid i1035: Bad quality pictures, appear grainy and fuzzy

I bought a new camera because I was tired of the blurriness of my old camera. However, buying a Polaroid i1035 just gave me a new problem. I have taken pictures indoors with my previous camera (a Canon Powershot A40) and had no problems on lighting. I suppose maybe it had a nice powerful flash, so the pictures never came out dark or had that grainy effect that low-lighting can give. Now when I try to take pictures indoors the pictures are no longer clean and smooth, but have that darn grainy appearance in just about every picture. Here are my examples:

Canon:

Polaroid:

(the desk especially shows up grainy)

Does anyone know what I can do to fix this problem? I really hope it's not a difference in the strength of the flash >_<. There are manual settings for the camera, and using a very basic knowledge of shutter speed and ISO speeds I thought I was getting somewhere...but the pictures still come out grainy when I try a different mix of settings. I'm upset because I think this camera may not have been such a good buy, even though Polaroid has a fairly good reputation. I'd really like the camera to be worth the money, so is there anything I can do to fix the picture quality? Thanks for your time!

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.

Hi there I just bought a Polaroid two instant print camera but the quality of pics is really poor very washed out and even a bit blurry do I need to set it up?


set your pixel ratio to the largest setting, this means less pictures per memory, but higher picture quality. Also if possible adjust your iso to the highest setting, as well as the shutter speed, having both of these settings set to the highest point will require more light for picture taking, however will result in the highest quality image.

Hello! I actually have a TZ3 and have been having problems with the quality of the pictures without using the zoom (grainy) as well as problems with the quality of the picture when using the zoom...


Hello, yes a few suggestions "grainy" could be from an auto ISO setting the sensor speed high as in possibly ISO 400 even 800 or higher you get the pictures but it's grainy. On pocket point and shooters this is most often the case in full automatic modes and on your camera it's called "Intelligent ISO Mode" You should consult your manual and select a more user selectable ISO speed manually. Another feature with your camera is image stabilization this you can turn on or off preferably off when the camera is mounted to a tripod. Okay for the blurry part on the zoom the quickest way to explain this is every tiny movement you make holding the camera is magnified 10 times, this is where the image stabilizing feature would be handy. Jennifer in my younger days I could hold a 35mm camera with a 300mm lens steady at 1/60 of a second now I use only a 200mm lens with image stabilization "on" to get the same results. What you have is a full time auto everything camera if it's working for you it doesn't matter if it's 3.5 years old. You are still working with a 7.2meg camera with a print capability of 11x14. hope this answered some of your questions.

My Polaroid i1035 won't stay on. It comes on when


That usuallymeans an internal problem. So it needs to see a repair shop. Check for warrenty repair and replacement cost. Sometimes it is almost cheaper to just get a new camera.

I have a new polaroid I735 camera and the pics are very grainy and blurry even when viewed through lcd screen. Any ideas?


maybe you zoom in a lot and then it would be normal and if the pictures come out fine, i wouldn't worry about it but if the print pics come out grainy and blurry i would take it back if you have warranty

It may have something to do with your settings.

Press the button with the diamond on it (at the bottom right hand cornner)
  • there will be a variety of different options that will help you take pictures in various conditions
In picture mode, press the ok button
  • go down to "awb" for more configurations and settings dealing with your conditions
(I might recomend the use of a tri-pod to hold it steady)
