9.1 megapixels are missing

Hi, I bought last year a TZ5.Realy a fine camera... After my travel from Thailand, I saw that picture size from 9.1 megapixels is missing on my TZ5. (I have only 7.5, 5.5, 3.5, 2.) I was on a site to download the 1.2 version with the hope that it will solve the problem... But still I see this problem. How can I help myself to resolve this?Thanks to help me!Frank.

In which mode is this, sounds like you're in one of the "scene modes"
when in normal mode, or in "Intelligent Auto" mode you should be
able to select all megapixel modes. (9Mp is only available in 4:3 mode)

Hi i have an Olypmus UZ800 and it takes only 72 dpi photos, how can i change to 300 dpi, i must insist that i use FINE picture quality


Please don't confuse the input resolution with the print resolution. DPI controls how many dots per inch are printed. It has nothing to do with how the picture is taken, that's controlled by the input resolution (also called image size). The image quality has nothing to do with either, it controls how much the image is compressed before being stored.

Input resolution (image size) is controlled by the "IMAGE SIZE" entry in the Shooting menu. 14 megapixels is the best this camera can do.

Image quality is controlled by the "COMPRESSION" entry in the Shooting menu. FINE is the best quality, least compression.

The DPI is controlled by whatever program you're using to print your picture. Were you to print a 14-megapixel picture at 72 DPI, you would get a picture that's almost 5 feet by 4 feet. Were you to print the same picture at 300 DPI, you would get a picture that's about 14 inches by 11 inches. If you wanted to print a 6 inch by 4 inch picture, you would have to print at about 700 DPI.

Hi, I would like to get the meanings of 8M, 5M in the picture size settings of the digital camera-Panasonic


The 8M and 5M in the picture size setting is 8 megapixel or 5 megapixel. You can change to a lower i.e 5 M so that you can get more pictures onto the same memory card because the resolutions change and space occupied is also less.

How do I set my camera to shoot with 300 dpi


That's not how it works. You can set the size to a different number of megapixels and a different quality such as "fine" or "standard".

Low resolution pictures from my Casio Exlim EX-Z750


Depending on what you're photographing, you can sometimes put it on micro mode (the super zoom mode). Whether or not you can do this, you should definintly bump it into fine or best quality, the more memory the picture takes up the better.

Ideal camera for uses like this would be one around 10 megapixels, this is the most that you should need unless you plan on blowing the pictures up very much larger than 8x10.

Megapixels on camera needs to be reset?


You can check the user manual to change again the resolution settings, or just reset the camera to the factory settings through the menu settings (last and bottom setting option).

Can't find pictures on SC card


Try transferring the pictures to your computer then erasing the copies on the sd card, then putting the pics back on the sd card from the computer and then of course back to the camera.

Dsc-P72 picture quaility


The only thing you missed, unfortunately is the camera you should've bought. The p72 is riddled with problems. Noisy high ISO shots, colours too hot, Vignetting and downright poor quality pictures compared to cameras with less Megapixels. A lot of people swear by them but they are usually people who've never owned any other camera. Those color casts and tinted shots are very offputting to someone with more scope in Digital cameras. I'm not totally condemning the p72 but there are many, many cameras of the same format which leave it for dead. BMW

The camera is not megabytes (MB) but megapixel (MP), there is a big difference. If you multiply the horizontal resolution by the vertical resolution then that will be how many megapixels are being captured. So in this case, max resolution 2048 x 1536 = 3145728 which is 3.1 MP effective. I don't think any camera actually captures exactly the full MP listed on the camera. Now, if each pixel was represented by a byte then you would have 3.1 MegaByte picture captured. However, each pixel is represented by I think 3 bytes which would give you a 9.3 Megabyte picture captured. However, since this is usually to large for most users to deal with, compression is introduced thus the settings for fine and standard. The tiff picture type is the 9.3 Megabyte photo with no compression. For most of us this isn't very effective for working with so we use the jpg compression. This reduces the picture to a more manageable size for saving, manipulation and storing. Keep in mind that this is what is called a 'lossy' compression which means that it actually removes pixels from the photograph and uses a technique called interpolation to bring the pixels back later.
