Hey missy0528,
There are a few reasons your images might be grainy, one of which is your image quality is set to low. I would always have the camera set to the highest resolution possible, because you can always reduce the size of an image but you can never make it bigger. Another cause of grainy images in digital cameras is the sensitivity of the camera (ISO) is set to high. Since you are only seeing grainy images when you use the zoom the reason for the grainy images is most likely do to using the digital zoom. All a digital zoom does is crop the image much as you can do in some computer applications, and by doing this you greatly reduce your image quality. I would never use a digital zoom. Your camera has a 5x optical zoom and a 5.6x digital zoom. I would only use the optical zoom. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

SOURCE: how do i put actual

By default Olympus cameras do not print the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.

Have you formatted the card in the camera before trying to use it? (download any pictures still on the card using a card reader if necessary).

SOURCE: 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)

Can you charge a olympus stylus 820 through a usb?


No. Connecting the camera to a computer drains the battery since the camera has to communicate with the computer. Use the supplied battery charger to charge the battery.

Olympus Stylus 820 Shutter noise when focusing or moving camera


The lens can and will make some random noises as its automatic focus and lighting adjustments are being readjusted for you. If you are scared it is something else, try going to the store and trying out the display model. See if it acts the same way.

Outside shutter cover will not open


The only thing I can recommend is to manually push the cover open. But, it will probably stay that way, and not close.
