Question about Fuji Finepix S5800 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Why does the FinePix E510 pictures download from the camera at 72 dpi when the camera was set to take 500 megapixel photos? I cannot find any way to adjust this in the finepix manual or in online help. I was helping someone download pics from his new camera and tried both Adobe Photoshop album starter and the finepix software. But when i open a photo in Photoshop, it says the photo size is 72 DPI. (My nikon doesn't do this when downloaded.)

A couple of things - I don't think you mean 500 megapixels (that is a lot!) but I assume you mean you expected a high resolution image. You may have it! The dpi setting is largely irrelevant (for photographers) as it simply relates number of pixels to a (notional) print size. Thus an image that is 3000 pixels wide (say) would print out to 10 inches at 300 dpi (3000/300) or 40 inches (approx) at 72 dpi (3000/72). the image has the same information /resolution - it's just "spread" further on the larger print. You can easily change the nominal dpi in e.g. Photshop Elements but it won't affect your image quality.
If however you are getting low resolution images when setting the camera differently that's something different. I would need extra info to help there but pssibly check if the camera was set to RAW and maybe you were looking at the (small) JPEG usually saved with it?

How to set 300 dpi


Dots per inch (DPI) is an output specification and is completely irrelevant as far as the camera is concerned. It's determined when you print the picture, not when you take it.

As an example, let's say you took a picture that's 2000 by 3000 pixels (6 megapixels). If you make a 4x6 print of it, you're printing at 500 dpi. If you make a 8x12 print of it, you're printing at 250 dpi, but it's still exactly the same file from the camera.

The program you use to print your pictures will let you set the DPI. Your camera has to put some number in there, and so it probably uses 72.

I have a Fuji Finepix AX200 how do I take a 300 dpi photo and what is the setting


DPI (dots per inch) is an output parameter and is completely irrelevant to the camera.

Imagine taking a picture that's 2000 pixels by 3000 pixels. When you make a 4x6 print, you're printing at 500 dpi. If you make a 8x12 print, you're printing at 250 dpi. Either way, it's exactly the same picture as taken by the camera. The camera doesn't know what size print you're going to make, so it just puts in a default value. The dpi is set when you print the picture, not when you take it.

How do I increase the dpi setting on my finepix S3300


DPI (dots per inch) is an output setting and is irrelevant as far as the camera is concerned.

Imagine you're taking a picture that's 2000 by 3000 pixels. At the time you take the picture, do you care how big you print it? When you get home and make a 4x6 print, you're printing at 500 dpi. If you make a 8x12 print, you're printing at 250 dpi. Either way, you're printing the exact same picture as taken by the camera. Since the camera doesn't know how big a print you're going to make, it simply puts in a default value for the dpi.

300 dpi nikon coolpix s51


DPI (dots per inch) is an output parameter and has absolutely no meaning to the camera. It has meaning only when you output the photo to a printer or screen.

Let's say you took a photo that's 3000 pixels on the long side. If you then make a 4x6 print, you're putting 3000 pixels into six inches so you're printing at 500 dpi. If you make an 8x10 print, you're putting 3000 pixels into ten inches so you're printing at 300 dpi. Either way, you're printing the exact same picture, only at different dpi settings.

The camera has to put something into the dpi field, so it defaults to 72 which is often used for computer screens. Just about any program you use to print your photos can change this number without affecting anything else.

How do I adjust for a very high reolution?sony cybershot n50??


DPI (dots per inch) is an output specification and is meaningless to the camera. The camera puts in 72 simply because it can't leave it blank. 72 dpi is commonly used when viewing a picture on a computer screen.
Suppose you have a picture that's 3000 by 4000 pixels (12 megapixels). If you make a 4.tinch by 6inch print (4x6) then you'll be printing at 667 dpi. If you make a 12 by 18 print of the same picture, you'll be printing at 222 dpi. It's the same picture, just printed at different sizes (and different dpi). The dpi value is set when you print the picture, not when you take it.

My pictures are only 72 DPI. How can I change the resolution to higher quality?


The dots per inch setting (DPI) is meaningful only when printing the picture. As such, the camera simply fills in a default value of 72. You can change it in Photoshop or any other photo editing program. The resolution setting on the camera only changes the number of pixels in the picture, not how you print it.

Want Increase resolution from 72dpi to 200 dpi


increase in dpi will not increase the resolution. dpi = dots per inch for example you have a res of 1024x768 at 72dpi you get a printed image of 14.2x10.6 inch at 300dpi you get a printed image of 3.4x2.5 inch
only thing possible is to interpolate the image. but thats **** in my opinion.

Need to Increase the DPI on my Fuji S5000


It does not work like this.

You can select the quality of the pictures (pixels) with the "F" key.
What you are talking about is "dots per inch", and that has to do with your printer.................,
where you can increase the dpi. 300dpi is not high quality at all !

Panasonic DMC-TZ3 72 dpi problem


Sounds like Photoshop's setting, or default setting, is to import picture at its maximum size. If you RESIZE pic on Photoshop, it shoud automatically increase DPI while reducing physical size.

The other thing to be aware, TZ3 defaults to a certain jpg compression. You can minimize compression of data with settings options on TZ3, but I doubt this has anything to do with your PhotoShop issue.

Also, in SIMPLE mode you can select a physical size for photo, even after pic is taken(resize), on camera.

Hopes this helps.
