Question about Olympus Stylus 820 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cannot view pictures taken when battery dies while shooting

I was taking pictures (with my Olympus Stylus 820 digital camera) on a class field trip and my battery was getting low. I pulled the camera out to take another photo and it just shut down by turning off. No message, beep, nothing.

When I came home to view the photos, I can see the files, but I cannot open/view the photos in any product.

Any suggestions as to how can I retrieve these precious photos?

I\'m surprised; I\'d expect your camera to have an effective and safe auto shutdown process in the event of a low battery.

It\'s possible that the sudden shutdown has ocurred during a write to your media card, this can cause file system and data corruption.

I\'m not familiar with the camera you are using but if you are satisfied you have followed any advice present in the camera manual regarding the situation, it\'s worth trying a third party data recovery application designed specifically for salvaging image data from corrupt media.

There are an abundance of utilities that attempt toserve the purpose, some are freeware, others are shareware or completely commercial.

There is a little button on the back, marked 'info'. Press it to switch from picture view to settings view. It also operates the viewfinder.

Olympus also has a good photo editing program that is free and it allows you to edit photos and stitch pictures taken pn panoramic mode into one panoramic picture. It's called Olympus Master.

When I try to delete a picture/video it says WRITE PROTECT with a ! point


Hi there, Can you take pictures on it? It sounds like the SD card is locked. If you take the SD card out, you should see a slider on one of the sides. Push it up to unlock the card - then you should be able to delete. If it is already up, then there is a write protect option on your camera you need to disable. Alex

Can you charge a olympus stylus 820 through a usb?


No. Connecting the camera to a computer drains the battery since the camera has to communicate with the computer. Use the supplied battery charger to charge the battery.

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)

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.
