Question about Sanyo VPC-CG65 Camcorder

2 Answers

I have no image in Camera mode on my Sanyo cg6. I can see a whole lot of settings on screen e.g. Video clip size, photo resolution, image stabiliser, focus etc as well as the picture and video capacities but all this is on a totally black backdrop. The SD card works in another digital camera except it wont play back video but that is likely to due the card being formatted for the cg6. I have formatted and reformatted. Any ideas please please??

    That would not fix the black camera mode screen as it is possible to store images direct to the internal memory.

    Any other suggestions please?

    The 1st expert suggested changing the SD card but I replied that this does not fix the problem as you can save images direct to the internal memory, so the question stands...why do I have a black screen in camera view?

    Hello again,

    Ok so I have tested the aperture opening and closing and compared it to my other digital camera, the Panasonic TZ3.
    The Panasonic The Panasonic has a closed Zeica lens and it is evident that the aperture shutter gets small when turning on and gets larger when closing before the outside shutter closes completely.
    With the Sanyo, the lens moves slightly forward when turning on and slightly backward when shutting down but I don't see any real narrowing of the aperture so I guess this must be the problem?

    I have found a service partner in Flanders (I am in brussels)?

    Regards,

I can think for only 2 possibilities for said symptoms in camera.
Either stuck / closed aperture or bad CCD Imager chip (ccd imager converts an image to electronic signal for further processing circuits) These are common reasons of blank/ black background in live view mode in camera.

You can observe aperture open/ close with close look into lens of camera, turn power On-Off. Aperture will behave as eye is being open and close right in center of camera lens. Good amount of light is needed to observe aperture function in lens mechanism. If you see eye-opened with power on and closed with power off then its bad ccd iamger chip behind that aperture that does not convert image into electronic signal and requires replacement.

Nearest Sanyo service center will fix it because they have ccd imager.
Thanks.

Try using another SD card that is recommended by sanyo. Do not use class A standard SD card.

Can you make horizontal pictures fit the frame


I'll assume your picture is already oriented properly (horizontally), i.e. you do not need to rotate it.
There are 2 modes for displaying the photo ... (1) the ORIGINAL mode - displays the photo in actual photo size, which may result in part of the photo not being visible on the screen, or, (2) the OPTIMAL mode - which reduces the size and resolution to best fit the screen.
To set image size mode, select the SETUP on the HOME screen display, then highlight and select the DISPLAY IMAGE SIZE button, and go from there.
The first (ORIGINAL) mode is usually the default mode. When you select the OPTIMAL mode, the picture will be scaled to fit the size of the screen ... but you may see "dark" bars (e.g. on top and bottom of the screen) if your picture does not fit the exact screen size.

Resolution


The XTi allow to set different image size for manual modes an for AUTO modes. So you can set a Large size superfine for auto and RAW type for manual modes. So check the size settings under manual and automatic modes.

However, the "smal" resolution (1936x1288 px) on XTi will allow you to print good 5x7 photos.

My sony cyber shot dsc-p32 camera


just change the resolution
set the camera on photo mode
then press trash button, it should display the resolutions
i recomend 1.3 megapixels for normal pictures, when you need the high resolution change it to better
also if you use the options of the photo mode you can change from fine to normal picture quality

Viewing panel


lies all lies!. first turn on your camera and check what resolution the images are set to record at. turn your camera to picture taking mode and press the trash button once. then you will see the available resolutions you can shoot at. i recomend 4M since it is the highet quality the cam supports. make sure it is on that and your images will always be super massive. the sony DSC-S40 is way to simple and cheap to have a complex menu like other cameras, so i do not see how your problem is possible unless you were shooting a VGA res(640x480) which is very small and only good for places like myspace. on your camera screen when trying to view a 640x480 picture, you would only beable to hit the zoom button maybe once or twice. you cannot zoom in far like the larger resolution images because there is nothing to zoom into. this is the whole point of high resolution pictures. to be hig res, which allows larger images to be shows with clearity. i hope i answered the quiestion.

Confused about Resolution Sony DSC-T7


2.2 MB is the size of the file on your hard disk. Being a .jpg, it is a compressed file. The file size does not reflect the size of the image stored inside the .jpg. Yes, the size sounds about right. It will increase or decrease depending on how much detail there is in the picture. If, for instance, your picture is made up of nothing but uninterrupted blue sky, the disk file will be quite small - as the .jpg does not need to store much information (the more repetitive information, the smaller the file). On the other hand, if your photo consists entirely of nothing but blades of grass, the disk file will be comparatively large. When you see "DPI", that refers to print resolution. So, since you're not printing, but rather, viewing onscreen, Photoshop "assumes" a convenient "screen resolution", as though you printed on the screen (don't ask!). If you look at the other settings, you'll note that Photoshop also thinks your photo is 36" wide!!! You adjust the DPI (or photoshop will) when you print. Till then, it doesn't mean much. Let me give you an idea of your image's possible DPIs. Assume you really want to print a 36" photo: 2592/36" = 72 DPI If you make the picture 12" wide: 2592/12" = 216DPI At 10": 2592/10" = 259.2 DPI At 8" 2592/8" = 324 DPI How do you get my photos above 200 DPI? By printing the picture small enough, less than 12.96" on the wider side. See calculations above. The resolution at which you shot the image (2592X1944), will not cause blurriness. As for the cause? There could be any number. Was the subject moving? Were you? Did you shake the camera while shooting? Is your shutter speed too slow? Should you have been using flash? Is the camera autofocusing correctly? Are you waiting for the autofocus to lock before pushing the shutter the rest of the way? Etc. Hope this helps somewhat...
