I have had this on my camera,

I took it apart and cleaned all the lens from behind and it took perfect pictures.

You best bet is to google the service manual, and see were you can go from there. if not take it to a local repair store.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

All of my shots are grainy--really grainy. My old 8 mpx camera took beautiful, tack-sharp photos. This is 14 mpx and it looks terrible. Someone suggested that maybe the contrast needed to be adjusted ...?...


Unfortunately with higher mpxs sometimes you pay for it with higher noise levels. The smaller pixels are more sensitive and can cause noise. A couple of things you can do to help control the noise is make sure your pictures not underexposed, you may need to bump up you exposure compensation a little as long as you don't end up too bright.
You can also try to shoot with the lowest ISO setting your camera has. High ISO = NOISE!
Last you can run your photos through a noise reducing program such as"Noisware" their community edition is free. http://www.noiseware.com/download_nwsa.aspx
PS Contrast settings will do nothing for noise.

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.

You need to check your ISO setting and the picture quality you have your camera set to. It should be at the maximum megapixels and fine quality and the ISO should be below 800 or even 400.

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)

Blurred images & screen on my Olympus camedia C55 zoom


try to take a picture with 1/100 shutter speed and make sure that your hand is not shaking when taking pictures. another is try to take picture with your current setting and set your camera on a tripod or place it on a table, set the timer and take picture. if the picture is not blurred then always set your camera to auto, if this doesn't resolved the issue maybe your lens has a problem.

M863 Easyshare Digital Camera- pictures upload grainy


try taking a picture with the auto selection. It automatically adjust light exposure and focus. There should be a little hand on the in the middle of the screen. Green means it's good, red is bad.
Take a couple pictures with this option and see how they turn out and let me know.

Zooming with Olympus Stylus 820


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
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Super Zoom


In addition to the optical zoom, this camera is equipped with a super zoom and digital zoom for taking telephoto and wide-angle shots. The super zoom and digital zoom cannot be used at the same time. Super zoom is used to extend the optical zoom up to 14× magnification. However, the resolution is automatically fixed at 1600 ×1200. Digital Zoom is used to extend the maximum optical zoom to approximately 40x. However, pictures taken with the digital zoom may appear grainy. Camera shake is likely to occur at these higher magnifications, please see “camera shake” question for further details on this.
