Selected resolution will not save


You need to change the setting in the Menu of ALL RESET from ON to OFF so that it will retain any setting changes that you make. To do this Press Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Setup tab - right arrow to All Reset - right arrow and choose Off and then press Ok. This will retain the mode setting until you manually change it again or change all reset back to On.

E100 Memory


I used a smartmedia at 128 megs and a 256 CF card. In combination it will take over 1000 pics in standard HQ mode. I printed many 5 by 7. Didn't try 8 by 10 yet. I didn't notice any difference in write speed between the CF and Smartmedia. Bought the CF for more storage capacity. I already had the Smart card for my Fuji 6900. I got the Oly E 100 for the same reason, sports and 15 Frame per Sec. i got some shots in baseball where you can actually see the compression of the baseball on the bat. Haven't shot in Tiff or SHQ mode yet. Don't see a need yet in so far as most of my sport shots are printed in 5 by 7 and I want that 1000 pic capacity. In 15 FPS you can easily take close to that many pics and 512 CF is too prohibitive and don't want the drain of a microdrive.

Image quality in low resolution


SHQ1 and HQ are two different levels of compression to make the file smaller. This will have a great impact on the image quality. Generally on Olympus cameras, this is what those letters mean: TIFF (highest (best) quality) generally not used. Files are HUGE and takes a long time for the camera to save the image to the card. SHQ (super high quality) you probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference between this and the TIFF HQ (high quality) which is lower quality than SHQ SQ (standard quality) which is lower quality than HQ SQ1 (standard quality 1) which is lower quality that SQ SQ2 (standard quality 2) which is lower quality that SQ1 A 2048x1536 only seems large because most people have their monitors set to 800x600 or maybe 1024x768 (that's what I have mine set at). This will seem to make the image REALLY LARGE! It only seems that way because you have to scroll around to see the image. If you want to print images, you'll want all the resolution you can get. If you want to display them on your screen (slide show,WEB page) then you don't need large images. You would just need to resize them down. However, since you may want to both, getting a camera with a higher resolution gives you the choice to do either. Usually, the higher resolution cameras have better lenses and generally take better pictures. On my camera (the Oly 2100), I always shoot at the highest resolution and the least amount of compression (SHQ on my camera). This allows me to do almost anything with the image. Nowadays, camera media (smart cards) are fairly cheap, HD's are DIRT cheap and CD-Rs are very cheap. If the images are "keepers", then I personally would want to start with the best image possible and store the images on CD.

Unhappy with the quality of the pictures


Is the white dot in the viewfinder? I could see that getting very annoying so I'd probably send it back. The shots I've taken indoors with the flash on the c2100 have not had any problems with over exposure. There are both exposure and flash compensation settings in the camera, make sure you haven't changed them by accident. If this is your first digital you have to get used to the way the images look, it's not the same as film. At first digial images look "soft" and more grainy, more so if you look at them at 1:1. I usually view them so they are about 8" wide on the screen, or about 1:2. As the number of pixels goes up the difference between different compression levels becomes less noticable. If you shoot in 640x480 mode you'll see a difference between high and normal. At full resolution on some shots you'll get better color on SHQ over HQ. And TIFF is rarely any better than SHQ.

How can I change the Resolution?


Olympus has its own way of showing the resolution settings. It is OK once you get used to it. Turn the Camera On. (On the back you will see an OK button surrounded by 4 arrows.) Press the OK button to bring up the menu. Press the left arrow button That should bring up a choice of: TIFF, SHQ, HQ, SQ1, SQ2 Use the up/down arrow buttons to move the cursor to SQ1 Then press the right arrow button That should bring up a choice of settings. Use the up/down buttons to select a setting. I suggest you select 2048x1536 (which is 3 megapixels) Then press the OK button. ................ You should think about getting a memory card with a greater capacity.

Features of each record mode


The details for each record mode are as follows: RAW: RAW data is unprocessed image data in its original state to which white balance, sharpness, contrast, color conversion and other processes have not been applied. CAMEDIA Master can be used to display RAW data and save it in other image formats. A RAW plug-in is also available for Adobe Photoshop which also provides the ability to process images in 32-bit color depth. TIFF: This is the highest-quality mode. images are saved as uncompressed data, which is the best for printing or image processing on a computer. SHQ: This is a high quality mode using the JPEG format. Because the compression rate is very low, high quality images can be stored. HQ: This is a high quality mode using JPEG format, with medium compression. Because the compression rate is higher than SHQ, file sizes are smaller. More images can be saved to a card. The file size can be changed in the 3:2 or Enlarge size mode as well as SHQ. 3:2 Mode: Ordinarily the image aspect ratio is set to 4:3. Due to change the ratio to 3:2, the picture size becomes 2592 x 1728 so that the image can be printed without losing the image borders at a photo lab. 3:2 can be set in the TIFF, SHQ, or HQ mode. SQ1/SQ2: SQ1 is used for resolutions above 1600 x1200 and SQ2 is used for resolutions below 1600 x1200. For both, you can choose high compression to reduce noise or normal compression to save more images.

Display show TIFF


TIFF will always show up on the monitor when you scroll to it. If you adjust the Image Quality on the monitor, it will remember your setting even if it shows TIFF when you scroll back to it at another time.
