Question about Nikon Cameras

Hi, I seem to be getting an unusual amount of noise on my images. D3x 50 1.4g AFS lens. ISO 100, 200 and more. This is especially so in the darker areas. This is used camera and wonder if there is a problem. Thanks

    Thanks, already tried multiple settings. Noise is more luminescence and easily resolves in cs5 bridge.

    Thanks for quick reply. Already tried multiple settings incl default. Noise is more luminescence and easily resolved in bridge. But should not be there in the first place. Very noticeable on the 50mm and more so when using higher f numbers. I think I will get it serviced just to make sure. I will post the results of service for future reference. May take a few weeks.

Here is a good site that explains the ISO settings, and noise that you should expect, with pictures:
http://www.nxs.net/svr4/planetnikon/www/Tips-D2x-UnderstandingISOandNRSettings.asp
When buying a used anything, there is usually some reason its being sold, and sometimes it's significant, sometimes it's not.
People at camera repair shops know more about them, and possible defects, than anyone else. If I were you, I would take the camera and some printouts of your pictures, and see what they thing. It's possible they can check settings, or give you a good idea of what's going on.
I would think a camera of this caliber would have very low noise properties, and perhaps they can scrutinize if the problem is with the lens or camera works.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

How to clean Nikon D3x sensor?


Go to your menu and choose 'clean sensor'.

In the video you'll see Jared Polin (famous photographer) clean the image sensor of his Nikon D3s (not exactly the D3x, but should be mostly the same procedure).

ISO AUTO ERROR


Need more information regarding your question.

If your error is about your images being brighter/darker whenever you shoot at different locations, then this is a normal feature when using Auto setting for your ISO. The exposure will always slightly change whenever the ISO changes.

If your problem is about too much noise, then this is a normal problem when you use very high ISO on the D80. You can remedy this by setting the max ISO to 400 but you will not be able to take non-flash pics in darker environments.

If your problem is the ISO levels do not go up a certain setting, change your MAX ISO setting to a higher number like 1600. At this setting, the pictures will be grainy and have a lot of noise so I recommend you convert the output to black and white.

Missing shot.


Any auto camera like this is going to have trouble in dark light...
Photography is all about light, and in dark situations, compromise as well.

You best chance is to set the ISO up to the highest setting available, use flash, and a faster shutter speed, however, faster shutter speeds means less light can enter the lens, and hence give a darker image. Higher ISO makes the camera more sensitive to light, but produces grainier images as a result. Flash creates artificial light...

The only real way to get good images at a concert in the dark is with a high end camera, a lens costing many thousands of dollars, a tripod or monopod to steady yourself, and a longer open shutter time.

In the meantime however, experiment with higher ISO setting, flash and try to keep your hand steady at all times because the shutter speed needs to be slightly slower for the lens to capture more light.

Bad photo quality


The Konika Minolta 7D is a DSLR. With the DSLR you have a much bigger sensor, and can use much bigger lenses (with larger apertures - lower f-stop numbers) to gather light to the sensor. This allows the DSLR to take much better photos in low light. You will never get the same quality out of a small pocket camera like the Nikon S60. Hand-held non-flash photos in low light with this camera are going to have the flaws you have noticed - especially in the darker areas of the image. This is digital noise caused by amplifying the signal from the sensor as the camera processes the image with the high ISO setting.

You said you are sure that you are using the highest picture quality settings. The next thing is to change the ISO - this camera's "high ISO" does not produce images with good quality. The camera automatically uses a high ISO setting in low light, you need to tell it to not use high ISO by setting a lower ISO value. When shooting with a low ISO setting in low light, you need to use a tripod, and your subject can not be moving.

If you need to take hand-held photos, or your subject is moving, then you need to use flash with this camera, or else use your 7D.

Pentax Optio S6 re-occuring problem


Greetings...

Here is the information on the lens system for the Pentax...

The Sliding Lens system is a proprietary PENTAX lens system that offsets the central lens groups from the optical lens axis and retracts the lens in two steps in the cylinder for minimized overall body depth.

I think from what you have stated, the lens system is off track, hense the noise and the blurry image...

Hope this is helpful...

Low light photos


It depends.

If you want to shoot static content eg. landscapes in the afternoon etc., you need long exposure times and of course a tripod. If your lens has image stabilization, do not forget to turn it off while you mount your camera on the tripod.

The other thing you can do, but it will cost you money, is get a brighter lens, (eg. F2.8). This combined with Image Stabilization will give you more freedom to capture moments in low light conditions, as a brighter lens can give you a brighter result without having to increase ISO.

Finally, another cheap method is to increase ISO. Of course this brings noise into the picture. Up to ISO 400 you may not notice the difference, but if you go higher, you will. If we are talking about point and shoot photos that you are going to print them on normal photo dimensions, a certain amount of noise won't be noticeable.

Hope this helps.
