Sharp photos on camera but very blurred when downloaded

First use of Praktica DC Slim5 and first download to Presto Mr Photo 3. Shops look clear on viewfinder but really quite blurred when downloaded. Even if I use the sharpen feature on Mr Photo 3 doesn't do much. I am so disappointed

Two things:

1.Digital cameras do not do well in low light, unless you want to spend $750 and carry around a bulky camera. The smaller and thinner the digital camera, the less you can expect high IQ(Image Quality) in certain types of conditions; low light, moving objects, long zoomed shots when camera has no IS(Image Stabilization), and long flash shots(Flash is only good to about 10Feet.

2.Your cameras display is small compared to a computers display, so the picture will look better on the camera because you cannot see the detail(pixels) as well as a much larger computer display. If you limit your prints to standard 3X5 or 4X6 or 5X7 view, then you will get a better idea if they are worth keeping for printing in these sizes later.

Read digital photo forums and start with your manual under Taking Pictures, or such, to learn about digital photography and how to live with limitations.

I think you will find the advantages far outweigh the limitations.

Hello, we just came from the UK into aust. We have a Praktica DC slim 330 but with no disc. the computer says that we need it to download pictures. please help!!

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( ).

Have not got laptop with windows 7 and cannot transfer photos from Praktica Luxmedia 6103 digital camera to laptop

You do not need Windows 7 - any functioning windows PC or Mac that can accept a USB cable should be able to see your camera's memory folders. Put the camera on and 1- On a PC they appear at Start/My computer/ and in a folder somewhere within E: or D: click on folders within folders to find and copy your photo folder manually. and paste it on your computer hard drive.
On a Mac it appears on the desktop.

Try to download and use picasa to import photos.

Pictures have all become fuzzy even when I hold the camera still.

you got it in one my dear!
it could be fluff on the lens? or dirt on the lens, or even a smug, but wipe it very lightly to clean it off!!!!
or its the auto focus (ei: a part in the camera that gets the pitcher in sharp focus for you) has just droped dead on you, as its very unlikly you could turn this bit off!! there is only one other thing i can think of and thats down to how you are using it?? like stabing at the shutter button, pushing the camera to one side when taking a photo??? the only time i had that problem was when i was at a big party,,,
but it was down to me falling over every time i took a photo!!!!!!!!!!!! i was p*ss*d again?
next time il take more water with it?
