Re: Poor quality images outdoors

Try setting your camera's auto balance into Automatic or Outdoor. So the camera could adjust the light or diable flash.

The red clock indicates that the date and time need to be set.
As for the "poor" quality, there are many possibilities. If the colors are wrong, the most likely culprit is an improper white balance setting. If the pictures are blurry, that could be caused by subject motion, camera motion, improper focus, or a combination of the three. If pictures taken with the flash are too light or too dark, that could be because the subject is outside of the flash's range. Without knowing what you mean by "poor" I can't give you anything more than some ideas.

Poor picture quality fs11

Please check the details.. How was it taken? (esp the lighting.).. In low light, or in indoor shooting in evening, or using flash when the subject is a bit too far away can result in totally disappointing pics. Try outdoor when the lighting is proper with the correct settings... If you are not sure about the settings, put it in auto mode... This is not a bad camera. Just try it out...

Poor image quality

hotoPC 650 captures images in 24-bit color (16.7 million colors). Your pictures will not display maximum image quality if your monitor or computer's video controller doesn't support this color depth. Additionally, if your pictures are taken in 1154 x 864 mode, try increasing your video resolution above 640 x 480. You may need to upgrade your system to achieve the best possible image quality. If your pictures look better on the screen than when you print them out, you may need to upgrade your printer. An EPSON Stylus ink jet printer, for example, provides excellent image quality. If you used drag and drop to insert your pictures, they may appear grainy. Try importing them into your documents instead.
