Re: IR Receiver

Are you serious?

In case you are serious, IR=infrared.

When you point your TVs remote control toward the TV and press a button, it is the IR receiver on the TV which receives the IR signal which is transmitted from the IR LED (Light Emitting Diode), which is the small bulb like part, on the front end of your remote control.

Any device using a IR remote control, must have an IR receiver to gather the siganl being transmitted. The IR siganl is a coded message of instructions for the device.

Nikon d80 turn off image information from view screen

The up and down arrows on the multi-function button on the back of the camera set the image on the display. With the display on, press the up or down arrow to function through the display settings and the stop on the one you want.

This often happens when you accidentally hit one of the arrow buttons while taking the picture and this changes the display image to the histogram or other display setting.

I want to use my nikon d80 with my sb600 and as a infrared remote

The Nikon D80's shutter can be released via handheld "IR" or infrared remote. You can buy them online or in most camera shops. The Nikon branded one will cost the most, but really doesn't perform a whole lot better than the $5 third party versions. The nice thing about IR remotes is that only a transmitter is needed. There's a built in IR receiver on the front of the camera body, and as long as it is not obstructed - or too far from the transmitter, it will work fine.

The SB600 will fire if setup to work correctly when the shutter is released "normally" - triggering with a IR remote will not affect the SB600 flash whether mounted on the camera or if in "commander mode". The D80 manual has details on pg 38 to operate in both the instant and time delayed IR operation modes and should be consulted as Nikon does not allow copy and paste from the manual - and they make use of graphics for button functions.

When distances are too great for the IR remote, you'll need to go the route of an RF or radio frequency remote instead. Many of these will work at distance up to and even beyond 100 yards. They consist of a transmitter and receiver. The receiver can be mounted on the hot shoe of the camera or tethered via cable to the camera body. This is not the question you asked about, so I won't go into further detail - but only mention it as another way of doing the same thing from greater distances or when you can not be in front of the camera to access the IR receiver on the D80 body.

If this was helpful, please rate it as such. Thanks and good luck!

How do I change resolution for pictures on camera? What should the resolution be set at?

Press the Menu/OK button. Repeatedly touch the down-arrow function area until you see the "Image Size" option. Touch the MP icon area to enter the image size menu. Touch the left-arrow function area to select the desired image size. Press the Menu/OK button to confirm, save, and exit.

What do you want the resolution set at? What do you want to do with the pictures? If all you want to do with them is to send them by email or to put them on the web, the VGA setting (640x480) is probably enough. If you don't ever print pictures larger than 4x6 inches, the 3M setting (2048x1536) is probably adequate. If you're going to want larger prints, the 8M setting (3264x2448) will let you make 8x10 prints and even larger.

Adjusting Pictures Resolution

you use the function button while in camera mode and scroll to the image size then turn the function dial to change it. you should consider taking your photos on the higest resolution, however, because SD cards are very cheap and you can get 8GB cards for under $40. Your camera came with a 32MB card which is tiny--you should throw it away. 8GB will store hundreds of 9 megapixel photos--i recommend having at least two SD cards. i hope this helps.

Distorted images

There has to be something wrong with the firmware in the camera in order for that to happen. You could take it into a camera store but I have a feeling the cost is going to be too high.

I couldn't download the manual from the website either.

Memory Card

chances are its the size of the pictures the camera is set to take,you will have to make them smaller, and lower quality to raise the amount of pictures you can take.The instructions on how to do that should be in the manual, or you can try the 1 i found on their site.

Changing the Resolution and Compression
1. With the camera power on, press the <FUNC./SET> button.

070.gif 2. In the Function menu select L* or 295.gifusing the 021.gifor 026.gif button.
a550rescomp.gif * The current setting is displayed.
3. Select the resolution or compression you wish to set using the 028.gifor 023.gif button.
You can shoot the image right after selecting settings by pressing the shutter button. This screen will appear again, once the image is shot.
6. Press the <FUNC./SET> button.
7. Shoot the image.

i hope that helps,later you might want to invest in a bigger memory card, 16mb is very small.Id go for a 512mb or a 1gb SD memory card ,then you'll be able to take more larger quality pictures.

Pictures and video not clear

The first thing I would do is - as Paul suggested, clean the lense using a fine-threaded cloth and a light cleansing solution.

But it sounds to me as though your Image Quality is set to "Normal" in the camera's FUNCTION menu. This is part of the same menu where you change the resolution of your camera's pictures.

Your options are as follows:
  • Normal
  • Fine
  • Superfine
While having the mode selection wheel in "Auto" mode, press "FUNC." near the upper-right corner of the view screen. (The button with the trash-can icon.) You'll be met with a menu where all but the last two options on the left side of the screen are greyed out. The option you'll find yourself already on is the video resolution.

Press down on the directional pad once. You should see the resolution that your camera is currently set to. (I believe the default was "L" which is 2816x2112. Move the cursor left and right to select the image resolution you desire.

Once you have moved the cursor to the correct resolution, press the "SET" button under the directional pad. You will now be met with the image quality menu.

From right to left: Normal, Fine and then Superfine. Select "Superfine". This will enhance the overall quality of the image. (These settings are retained PER RESOLUTION SETTING in the camera's memory.) Press "SET" once more and exit the options menu by pressing "FUNC." again.

Making sure to use the two-step button properly, take another picture and see what you get with it.

Certain things can affect the camera's operation and quality as well. For instance, if you bring the camera out of the cold after it sits in it for a while, you have to let the camera adjust itself to room temperature first. Otherwise you will get blurry images because of condensation build-up on the lens. (The same effect as when you get a can of cold soda out of the fridge in the summer. You see all that condensation build up on the sides of the can due to the differences in temperature in the air and the surface of the can condensing the moisture from the air.) Is the environment you're in possibly filled with moisture from heating systems?

Let us know if you are able to fix your issue here. Please wait to rate us until we actually arrive at an end result. (Unless the solution given fixes your problem. Feel free to rate "Fixya" if that's the case.)

Hope this helps you.

Best qulity you can get with canon 350d is RAW format, but you cant shoot raw in automatic mode , when you switch camera to manual mode you will see raw option is enabled. if not JPEG (EXIF 2.21) - Fine will capture your images at 8MPX with 3456 x 2304 resolution.

Does the W1 have infrared abilities?

The Sonys with Nightshot are best at IR, IMHO. The W1 does not have this feature. I imagine it could take IR pics in Manual mode, but the exposures would have to be so long that picture quality would suffer to an unacceptable degree, IMO. The V1 has nightshot, and the price on them has come way down since the V3 was introduced. If you want to get into IR, I suggest a V1.
