Question about Kodak EasyShare Z650 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Z650 picture quality

We have a Z650 that has taken great pics. We photograph our son's football games and notice that the camera is starting to have difficulty auto-focusing, some of the photos are coming out very dark and the sports setting pics are coming out blurred. This is all recent issues. I also hear a noise like the processor maybe having some trouble? We use the multi-pic setting and see the blue "processing" screen often.

 

We do have a 1GB disk and will be buying a 2GB. By process of elemination, I thought maybe we were buring out the disk. We take about 300 frames per game and even though we delete the pics each week....maybe that is the problem?

 

Any thoughts? Thanks much in advance!

    I'm having the same problem, pictures are not of the same quality that they were when I first got the camera. Changing settings does not seem to help when using the flash in low light settings, even when I am in range.

Try reformating your card and see if that helps any.

I purchased DMC-FZ28 k August 2008. I am not a photographer and used iAuto function and other preset modes. The pics come out "flat" "dull" and lack vibrance and color depth. ...


I don't know where you are. In the UK, I think I would have tried to take this back to the vendor for a replacement or refund early on (in the first year of ownership), but in other countries your rights may be different. Two years on is a bit late to make a warranty claim or return as faulty. Perhaps Panasonic's offer to exchange the camera may be your best option.

If you perform a Google search on the camera make and model you will find a number of consumer reviews, written by ordinary owners, as well as reviews by professionals. This may help you decide whether the model has problems or it is just the one you own.

How to take best pictures.


1. The best pictures can be taken with a tripod and using self timer or the remote control of the camera.

2. Some people think that the best picture can be taken with suddenly pressing the shutter. In reality it is not true. So the best pictures can only be taken with two steps. First, pressing half way and without not shaking the camera continuing on pressing the shutter. At last the camera takes picture. But a good photographer does not know the moment of taking the picture. He/She only knows and concentrates on not shaking the camera.

3. Best pictures can only be taken with an artistic point of view. Best photographers place the subjects to the most estetic point and the best estetic position.

4. Best pictures can only be taken without using the flash.

5. Best pictures can only be taken at the Golden Hour time. Golden Hour is the time period, starting with the Sun rise and ends after an hour. Second Golden Hour starts before an hour of Sun Set and ends with the Sun Set.

6. Best pictures can only be taken by a best photographer so you can never see a best photographer's portrait as a best picture.

7. Best pictures can not be taken with a most expensive camera but can be taken by a best working amateur photographer.

8. Best pictures can not be taken by professionals but can be taken by the professional amateurs.

9. Best pictures can only be taken with the camera which has a greater sensor size.

10. Best pictures can only be taken with a natural view of the objects.

Good book for a beginner?


have you set it to macro mode? (little flower icon on the right cursor) this function will allow you to get within about 2cm of the subject, however do not use the zoom as the lens cannot focus close enough. To get results any closer you will be looking at an slr and a budget on a few thousand! If enabling macro and not using zoom to allow the lens to focus doesn't get you close enough in you can always enlarge and crop images. have a look on www.picture-skew.blogspot.com i've taken some macros of flowers and bugs, this camera can capture the hairs on an ants back or the individual lenses of a flys compound lens eye.

persevere with this camera, for a very small budget you will get amazing results, ISO refers to the speed of 'film', it comes from the dark old ages of 35mm film cameras. Basically a low ISO is the lowest sensitivity to light and gives the best image quality, however as the ccd is less responsive to the light the camera holds the shutter open for longer. The higher the ISO the more sensitive the ccd but the greater the noise and lower the quality of picture.

Books, try looking for more photography orientated books and less digital camera based books. An upto date photography book will tell you all the technical information about how to take a good picture for any given senario.

if you would like any further advice email me (address on the blogspot)

you must have better knowledge of image editing tools like photoshop etc. with the help of those you can remove the date from the original photographs you already taken or you can do some beautiful border work to hide those date time with Ulead Photo Impact.

Need help w/ night pics at softball games


On camera flash will not help in out door sports facilities. If you have maxed the ISO and set it to Aperture priority -which will slow the shutter down and give you camera shake and blurred images as the players dart about- Ho Hum you ain't going to win this one. Buying a bolt on flash I doubt will be powerful enough either, take what you can and get to grips with a good image editor- Though I guess the results will still be 'noisy'
