Question about Cameras

1 Answer

Digital camera hi i just got a digital camera at first i had problems because the pictures were grainy but i seem to have fixed this with changing the iso to 100 but now the pics seem to b blurry it kind of looks out of focus, if i take a still moving object outside it is better but still a little bit blurred although not much, but inside it is worse and if i try taking a pic of my kids well there is no chance it goes far too blurry because they wont stand still enough, also the flash seems to affect it if i take change the flash to other settings i am not sure how to explain this but there is about 5 settings for the flash including on and off and one that puts the flash on but seems to make a dark pic, this setting seems to make it not blurry but it is too dark even though it flashes?? dont know if u can help but would be greatly appreciated if u could. thanks

You can try and adjust the contrast for that pictures. try also iso 300 for the picture to increase quality. downpoint is its size will increase. just explore the settings and try them all out. im sure you will find the perfect settings that you'll like

You can use any ISO setting you want. After all, it's a digital camera...you can experiment to find the settings you like and it doesn't cost a cent.

Grainy pictures


If you are taking pictures in low-lighting conditions without flash, then the pictures will appear grainy. Set the ISO to a lower number (try ISO-100 to start with) and use the flash to compensate for low-light conditions.
This should improve the grainy appearance of your photos.

Really Grainy low quality pictures with my new camera.


Try shooting with ISO value of 200 or less; or set to "Auto".

If you're missing the manual, you can get it in English, here. Page 76 briefly discusses ISO settings. This camera can select an ISO as high as 1600. ISO has to do with graininess of film - the higher the number - the more grainy the images. Higher ISOs are selected when light levels are low and no flash is used or is usable (such as when the subject is too distant). Some photographers use higher ISO settings with high shutter speeds to stop fast moving objects (like wheels on a race car). The grainier the film, the quicker it captures light. Fime grained film takes longer to capture light.

Generally, pictures taken outdoors in sunshine look best when ISO is 100 or less. 100 is a good choice for well lit indoor pictures, too; but may be better with an ISO of 200. ISO works like this:

If a picture can be properly exposed with an ISO of 100 in 1/15 sec, it would require only 1/30 sec at ISO 200, or 1/60 sec at ISO 400. When you double the ISO value, the exposure times are halved. What's the big deal about 1/15sec, 1/30 or 1/60 sec you might ask? Easy! the picture will probably be blurry at 1/15 and even 1/30 sec exposure time, due to the camera recording even the slightest movement of your hands. You'll need to supply a tripod or do something else (such as increase the size of the opening of the aperture or f-stop) to get a properly exposed image.

I hope this helped - if it isn't an ISO problem - let me know. Good luck!

Grainy pictures and not sharp


These cameras were designed to be high sensitive to light. If the Flash is set for Auto Flash, the camera tends to use ISO 400 whether the flash is fired or not. This was done to increase the working range of the flash.
In order to change this setting please go into the Menu (Capture+ tab) and set the ISO for 64, 100 or 200 in order to reduce the graininess. However this will lead to slower shutter speeds in low light.

Grainy pictures...iso problem for olympus stylus 820


Without ISO you will not be able to take pictures.
ISO is the old ASA which is related to film speed
ISO 50 is very slow film speed and may result in blur and some grainy appearance , same as if you PUSHED ISO up to 800 in low light.

Try setting it to ISO 100 and see if that helps.

You can still select auto, but its related to either shutter or aperture priority in relation to the set film speed ( now ISO 100)

Grainy pics


When using sport mode the ISO jumps to 400 or more, and this is very noticeable in the grain of the picture. S3 renders good detail up to ISO 200. My advice: Set ISO to 200 in Tv mode, then set the shutter speed to 400 or something like that using the < > buttons. You have to try the best speed under the light you are. If the light is very good, perhaps you can use ISO 100 and get much better results.

Pictures come out very grainy


Most likely, you've set the ISO value higher than necessary for most circumstances. You may have done this deliberately to catch some fast action, or you accidentally hit the ISO button without realizing it. If you reset to lower ISO settings, your graininess problem will probably disappear.

The faster the "film speed", whether you're using real film or a digital camera, the more grainy the pictures will be. ISO is the film speed. The ISO speed is set by pressing the ISO button (just above the "FUNC SET" button); it cycles thru AUTO, HI, 80,100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, then back to AUTO. If you've set the camera to AUTO on the control wheel opn the top of the camera, then you can only select ISO of AUTO or HI (which is slightly faster than AUTO).

The higher ISO settings are useful in low light conditions or to catch fast action, but those higher settings should not be used otherwise because of the increased graininess.

I hope this helps you.

Grainy looking photos


The first thing I'd check would be the ISO setting. If it has the capability of changing that, the go with a setting of 100 or lower. The higher the ISO, the more digital noise you will get.

Hope this helps!

it could be a problem with CCD, and that can just be replaced in a service centre.

With the iso set on auto mode it will change depending on the light and anything above iso 200 is very bad on this camera i know have the 717 and it does a lot better but if you can set the iso yourself and take it off auto allways use 100 or 200 for low grain.
