Question about Olympus SP-510 UZ Digital Camera
Contacted Olympus and they told me to turn off the image stabilizer....duh why did you think I got the camera!!!!
all of a sudden my in door shots are grainy but at the same time my outdoor shots are sharp as ever...what has gone wrong???
My wife thinks it's the replacement XD card Olympus sent us to replace the one that my HP computer reformated to the point it would not work.
Unfortunately the response you received from Olympus is correct. The Image stabilisation system used in your camera does not use the best approach to overcoming camera shake - rather than a more expensive sensor based system it downgrades the picture quality and in dark (relatively) situations the result is grain in the picture. See bottom of Page 25 in the Advanced Manual (found on the CD which came with your camera). A similar problem occurs if you turn on and use the Digital Zoom available in the camera. Unless absolutely vital for a particular shot turn both off.
Try it and see the benefit.
