Polaroid i830 camera takes terrible pics close up, red looks black, blurry help!
Not a camera savy person but my daughter got the i830 pink camera for Christmas. I don't know if it is just too complicated for us but we have been trying to take pics and close ups are blury and red looks darker than they are. I am very frustrated. I use this camera to sell things on ebay and noone will buy anything if the pic is no good. Any help would be a godsend. Wal-mart says 30 days is limit for exchanges.

TRy in MACRO mode, and the reds can be fixed in Picasa (free from google) All cameras have minimum focus distance, maybe you are just getting too close. There is also a white balance. It usually says sunshine, overcast, tungsten and fluorescent. This shifts the color spectrum to best suit the type of lighting.

USB cords can be purchased at places like Best Buy. You will need to take your camera with you to make sure the end that fits in your camera is the correct size. You could eliminate all problems by purchasing a card reader instead. Works with all cards and all operating systems.
Hi, The polaroid i830 does not have a good in built memory so u cannot take more than 2 pictures at a resolution of 8 mega pixels and 16mb is as good as no memory :-)
So, either you need to buy a SD card (I have 2 GB working perfectly fine with my i830) or reduce the resolution to VGA.
1. Switch on the camera.
2. Push the button below 'M'.
3. You will find the option of resolution, select VGA.
Were you using an SD card while taking your pictures? If you were, it saves the pictures you take to the card while it's in.
Turn your camera off and connect it to the pc with a usb cable. Turn the camera back on and go to My Computer. You should see the camera (or the card) in the section of removeable drives. Double click on the drive icon, or the card icon and you can find your photo's there. That should help you.
Polaroid offers in warranty and out of warranty service. There are also camera shops with in-house repair people. If you'll give me your zip code, I'll try to help you find someone close to your area. Regards, Char1ieJ
