I have olympus camedia 4.0 mega pixel. old camera. need to know how to change the camera photo storage from 18 photos to at least 64 photos storage


Hi, jamesepatton, and welcome to FixYa.
I am going to assume that you are referring to the camera's internal storage, as opposed to the camera's removable storage card.
Obviously, to increase the storage on a removable card, one need only purchase another, higher capacity storage card.
To change the camera's internal storage capacity, one needs to reduce the resolution of the pictures one takes.
Example- your Olympus is capable of taking a 4.0 mega pixel sized picture. This size picture can generate a fairly large data file (after all, pictures- like Word documents- are only data files!) While this is what is normally programmed into the camera at the factory, you are not 'married' to this size. In the "Setting" menu of the camera, there will be an option to change the mega pixel (mp) setting. Try lowering it to the next lower setting (say, 3.0 mp) and shoot until the camera tells you it's full. You may have to try several different mp setting, but eventually you'll land on the right one. It's going to depend a lot on what is in your pictures as well, as different scenes and content can affect file size.
A quick note here: Lowering the mp setting will affect the quality (and/or resolution) of the photo. I have found that for a great majority of the photos that I personally take, a 2.0 mp setting is just fine. I am by no means shooting magazine covers or entering my pictures in contests, I shoot 'em, print 'em and save 'em. Just your basic home pictures.
If resolution/quality is important, I would highly recommend that you save ALL pictures to a removable memory card and leave the camera set on 4.0 mp.
Good luck, and let us know how you go!

How many pictures can you take on cards with 2GBS?


That depends on several factors. Among them are the picture resolution (a 12MP picture will generally take more space than a 6MP picture), the quality (BASIC will produce smaller files than FINE). In addition, some cameras allow you take pictures in RAW format instead of (or in addition to) JPEG format. RAW files are much larger than JPEG files since they include all the data that comes from the sensor, not just the processed results. In addition, the subject itself will affect the size (a blank white wall requires less memory than a finely detailed landscape, for example).

Your manual should have a page giving you general guidelines as to how many pictures you could expect to store on a card. That page may give you numbers for a different sized card, but you can simply scale the results. For example, if the page says it's for a 1GB card, simply double all the numbers.

It's also good practice to have a spare card. That way, if you suddenly get creative (or if something happens to your first card) you can keep shooting.

I have a nikon d40 that works great ewxcept for one day i was taking pictures and all of a sudden the camera would not take a picture in auto or manual and theres a warning sign flashing "r11" where the...


Slow down your shooting. The "R11" indicates that you can take 11 more images before the buffer is full and the camera will stop functioning until the images are moved to the memory card.
Select a smaller file size. Nikon cameras allow you to select from several sizes of JPEG as well as a RAW and a RAW + JPEG file. These files vary in size. If you select a smaller file size, the buffer will take longer to fill, allowing you to shoot longerTurn off long exposure noise reduction. This function causes the camera to expose twice for every image, and this can fill up the buffer quickly as those images are processed and written to the card.
  • Step 3 Select a smaller file size. Nikon cameras allow you to select from several sizes of JPEG as well as a RAW and a RAW + JPEG file. These files vary in size. If you select a smaller file size, the buffer will take longer to fill, allowing you to shoot longer.
  • Step 4 Turn off long exposure noise reduction. This function causes the camera to expose twice for every image, and this can fill up the buffer quickly as those images are processed and written to the card.

    Have problem with memory fetures and fussy dots in pictures


    Probablyyou are selecting high iso figures (800 plus), which causes noise (the fussy dots you're talking about). As for the memory troubles, probably you are selecting shooting in RAW mode or in super-fine JPEG. RAW and super-fine jpeg files are very big, and demand lots of room from the memory card.

    As for the first problem, selecting lower ISO figures should solve it, causing as side effect need for better light conditions for your pictures; as for the pictures quality, try reducing it, bearing in mind that your pictures will loose quality as well (usually noticeable when you try to enlarge it to bigger sizes).

    My canon EOS 40D with 18 - 55 IS , when continuous shooting mode is selected, slows down after taking 6 shots. However as per the spec its capable of taking 75 jpegs or 17 RAW images.Please resolve this...


    Slow down after taking 6 RAW files ...
    A RAW file is Approx. 12.4MB.
    The memory usage is approx. 74,4 MB
    The internal memory (Buffer) has a size for up to 75 JPEG compressed images.

    Which size has the smallest jpg?
    JPEG/Small: Approx. 1.2MB (1,936 x 1,288)
    The Buffer is approx. 80 MB.

    The data are calculated under Canons laboratory conditions.

    The maximum Burst (the 17 shoots) means that the camera is writing to the card and the buffer is full. Than the cam will stopping taking pictures.

    Which kind of Card do you use?
    Check the spec for the card (write speed) and maybe buy a faster card.

    Size of JPEG file produced by this camera


    the general rule is a jpeg is halve the mb of the resolution-6 mp =3mb file size-kodak uses a ton of compression and this is the main reason why-put a memory card in a kodak and you pick up about 20-30% more capacity than other brands!

    Image quality of the 3100z's JPEG format?


    I don't think you will find any major difference in quality with Epson's 3000 or 3100 compresssion compared to Canon's. I use the 3000z and shoot in low compression giving a file size about 850k - 1000k.
