Question about Canon PowerShot SD800 IS / IXUS 850 IS Digital Camera
I have fuzzy pictures. I have adjusted the mode so it takes the highest resolution, but my pictures are still fuzzy and grainy during the day, at night, up close, etc.Help!
This camera is a perfect one to show the problem with the tiny sensors in the typical point and shoot. From the same sensor size that previously gave 2 or 3 megapixels, Canon now extracts 7.something. In order to do that, they have to turn the gain up so that each pixel actually puts out a signal to be recorded. The natural outcome of that is noise. In this camera, Canon includes heavy noise reduction software that softens the image in order to reduce noise at the various ISO settings above the minimum one, but the result is still a mix of noisy and soft or fuzzy images.
However, the noise should be well controlled at the low end of the ISO settings.
I suspect you have somehow gotten the ISO setting set up higher than the lowest one. Use the four-way controller to access the ISO and set it to the lowest (80) value. This should give you noise free shots.
As an additional suggestion, read the concise review of this camera at Dpreview, the link for which I've provided.
If you have any questions, please let me know before giving this answer a rating and I will provide it. Thanks.
