Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 Digital Camera
Just curious as I am printing a ton of pics....why they are a range of 2.4-4.1mb...when I have the camera set at 8mb? the quality of my 4x6 & 5x7 are not so great because of it. bummed. can u help? thanks elaine
A jpeg when compressed (unopened) would be about 3-4mb from an 8mp camera. This can vary a little. Once opened and uncompressed (ie - in Photoshop or another program that will show its uncompressed file size) the file would be about 21-25mb. If you are not getting good photos printed at 4x6 etc. It could be for a number of reasons. A: you may be printing the thumbnails and not the actual full res photos. - see if there are duplicate photos in the folder - 1 set high res, 1 set low res. B: in low light or by changing the ISO manually to a higher sensitivity (higher number like 400,800 1600), quality can be greatly reduced. C: by zooming in too far. There is a maximum that the glass can magnify and after that the camera enlarges the veiw of the pixels which is the same as you trying to blow up a tiny little area of a photo. --In combination, low light and zooming in will provide very unpleasing results. The more you zoom, the more shaky the photo will be and the less light can enter the lens A higher shutter speed and ISO are needed as less light is available. Try moving in rather than zooming in when in low light. Also use a flash. In general, dont use or disable the digital zoom for better results. A tripod will help too for non moving subjects. Take these lessons to the bank even if you think I haven't addressed your problem.
