Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 Digital Camera

1 Answer

GRAINY PICTURES I got my FZ8 two weeks ago and it took beauiful pictures at first. Now all of my pix are grainy when I transfer the onto my computer to view them. I noticed that the file size of the transferred pix is now recorded in mb where as all of the pictures that are beautiful and not grainy wre recorded in kb. I must have changed a setting and now I'm not sure of how to fix this problem. Thanks, I need lessons on how to use this camera... Jo

All the pictures that I took at a cheerleading camp in an indoor football field are grainy. I had the setting on P and iso on 1600. What did I do wrong

Hi it is normal that you had setting ISO1600. If the picture come fine then something wrong. Up to 400 speed, you can see fine picture. Higher than that would come picture grainy.

Grainy pictures

If you are taking pictures in low-lighting conditions without flash, then the pictures will appear grainy. Set the ISO to a lower number (try ISO-100 to start with) and use the flash to compensate for low-light conditions.
This should improve the grainy appearance of your photos.

I bought a canon sd1100 a year ago. It used to take great pictures. One month ago all pictures taken have been grainy. Do you know why>?

Could be that ISO settings were accidentally changed. The main annoyances with high ISO setting are the noisy (grainy as you say) images. Check the iso settings if you are shooting in modes other than automatic shooting.

Grainy pictures

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.

Polaroid i1035: Bad quality pictures, appear grainy and fuzzy

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.

Grainy, image

You might have changed the settings; ISO setting too high or something else, just reset it to factory settings if you can't figure out ISO.

Grainy pictures

grainy pictures are possibly casued by a very high ISO (sensativity) setting, you should be on 100 or lower for best normal shots. Higher settings are for low light and custom shooting in strange lighting or aperature/shutter speeds. Try full auto setting.

Sounds like the 'shutter speed' as it was called is too fast.

it could be a problem with CCD, and that can just be replaced in a service centre.
