Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F828 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Falling image quality

I have my camera since 2004. These last months its image quality is clearly falling, even with photos taken at 5M or 8M. I used to make sharp and clean photos, but now they seem blurred, even using the same settings as before. May the CCD sensor be dirty, or becoming too old?

    I cleaned my filters and did some tests this week-end, using a tripod and an external shutter. The tests showed that the photo quality seems to remain +/- the same as before. I believe that my monitor has some guilt, since its quality is less than average and it is not stable. I'll do some paper prints to better compare the photo quality. Other possibility would be that I'm just getting older and my hands are quivering more :-)

Take a few test shots with the camera on a firm surface or on a tripod. Are they better?

Hi, I would like to get the meanings of 8M, 5M in the picture size settings of the digital camera-Panasonic


The 8M and 5M in the picture size setting is 8 megapixel or 5 megapixel. You can change to a lower i.e 5 M so that you can get more pictures onto the same memory card because the resolutions change and space occupied is also less.

Pictures are blurry; quality of photos seem compromised


As simple as this may sound, have you cleaned the lens lately? A lot of image quality deterioration comes from a finger print or other smudge on the lens. Digital cameras are succeptable to even the smallest gunk on the lens. Because the lens element is very tiny, use a cotton swab with a drop of lens cleaner (or isopropyl alcohol) to thouroughly clean and dry the lens. If it isn't a dirty lens, check your file-size and flash settings.

DSC-P52 image quality and size


I assume you bought this used, do you have a manual? You can download it from Sony directly (for free); http://129.33.22.12/release/DSCP52.pdf
As far as the photo quality goes, this camera was first sold in 2003, and they have come a long way with automatic cameras in the last 5 years. If some time the photo is better than other times, thinks you should check is that the lease doesn’t have any smudges on it. You would not notice by looking at the screen if there was a finger print on the lens. Be careful about going from cool areas to warm ones this will cause the lens to fog-up
You are shooting in the highest resolution available from this camera, there is no RAW mode.
