Did you know there are two firmware updates available for your camera? For a timer picture, here are the instructions: 1Press the <o> button. (
9)
2Select either <j> or <l>.
Look at the LCD panel and turn the
<5> dial to select <j> or <l>.
j:10-sec. self-timer
l:2-sec. self-timerN
3Take the picture.
Focus the subject and press the
shutter button completely.
The picture will be taken after the
self-timer delay elapses.
You can check the self-timer
operation with the self-timer lamp,
beeper, and countdown display (in
seconds) on the LCD panel.
Two seconds before the picture is
taken, the self-timer lamp will stay on
and the beeper will sound faster.
Do not stand in front of the camera when you press the shutter button to
start the self-timer. Doing so will throw off the focus.

Nikon Transfer 2


What makes and models are your two cameras? What image settings are you using on the two cameras?
Without knowing the specifics, I'd say your Nikon is shooting larger pictures and saving them with less compression (better quality setting).

200mm pics are blurry even with tripod


Happens all the time, and for a lot of different reasons.

If a tripod isn't sturdy enough to support the camera and lens then it may as well not be there. You might want to read this article.

If your camera and/or lens has any kind of image stabilization capability, turn it off when you mount it on a tripod.

A remote release may help. But if timing isn't critical (as in landscape shots) try setting the self-timer. This gives you plenty of time to take your hand off the camera before the shutter fires.

One way to tell whether the tripod is the cause is to use an absolutely rigid support for comparison. Set the camera on a rock or stone wall or fencepost or some such and take some pictures (with and without the self-timer). You're not going for great pictures, all you want to do is get them onto your computer and see if they're sharper than the pics you take on your tripod.

Sounds like you want to do a lot of things with your camera but don't have the manual. You can download one at the support section of the Pentax website.

My pictures and screen are blurry...but when i zoom in my pictures come out clear...what can I do myself to fix it?


Your camera is likely set for MACRO, a mode for shooting pictures of things that are very close (close up shots).

For the pics that you have already taken, you might try using The GIMP or Photoshop to "Unblur" the image.

Flash


What's perfect to you may not be perfect to someone else, That is why this pro grade camera offers so much in the way of adjustments. One doesn't often GET the perfect picture. More often, one must CREATE the perfect picture..

Set the flash at "0" for the most uniform pictures, and try a better lit environment and work in the 4' to 8' range. Generally, your pictures taken outside in good light, with the sun at your back will be the best. The rest, especially flash, often require some manipulation of the environment..I.E. lighting.

A perfect picture requires a perfect subject, perfect pose, perfect foreground lighting, and perfect background lighting.

So, the answer to you question is; there is no perfect setting, which will constantly produce perfect pictures.

Good Luck..

Night shots


Hi: Well, I think you have a problem because you cannot take still shots at night :) Not even with the best SLR. The camera as to get light to make the picture. My advices are, not only use the tripod but when you shoot, but set the timer function so you don't touch the camera when it shoot's and use a high time of exposure like 2 or 5 seconds depending on the subject... Make several experiences with low resolution and when you suceed, make it with a higher resolution ;) Regards
