Super Fine picture file size needs more space in memory card where as Fine picture file requires less. Its up to you, if you have big memory card, shoot pictures in S.Fine mode.
Generaly, Fine picture mode is being used to take more n more pictures.

Setting my Samsung ST76 to 1MB photos


I do not complete understand what you want. My fuss is, you want every picture to be about 1 MB on your memory card. I do strongly advice against this, but you own the camera and so it be. You always can make pictures with a smaller resolution from high quality pictures, but never the other way around. You better shoot highest quality on your camera and later wham the pictures are on your computer down size the ones that are less important to 1 MB.
But you can choose 5 mega pixels with normal compression or 3 mega pixels with fine compression or 2 mega pixels with super fine compression. All these pictures will look fine in an e-mail, or on the net. Even a 6 by 4 inch picture will look fine. Memory cards will cost like 1 dollar pro Gbyte, so my advice is buy a few 8 or 16 Gb cards and shoot in high def.

Cannot take so much pictures. what is a memory stick. is it different from memory card?


A memory stick generally refers to a USB device that you use to transfer digital media from one device to another. Your camera would utilize a memory card - depending on your camera this could be a CF card (bigger almost square) or a SD card (looks like a SIM card.

As to the number of pictures you can take: This depends on a number of things - 1) Internal memory of the Camera 2) Size of your memory card 3) Settings you shoot with.

Depending on the camera you have you can set the quality and type of format - format could be your camera's raw capability which is usually the largest size to save an image in or it could be set to JPEG (here you normally have settings like Fine, Medium and High or Small, Medium, Large) some cameras only offer JPEG output and will only show you the option to set it on small, medium or large.

Smaller size = More photos, but keep in mind that this affects what you can do with the photo. If you want to use it for the Web or mobile then small is no problem, if you want to print the photo then a medium (preferably large) setting should be used.

The best is to have multiple cards and then you can continue shooting even if you are not at a place where you can download what you have already.

My Pentax K100 DSLR is flashing "av" and will not take a photograph, though the shutter works fine and takes pictures without the lens.


"AV" means apeture priority. This means that you set the apeture that the camera will use, and it decides the shutter speed. The flashing "av" means that you've picked an apeture that the camera can't pick a suitable shutter speed for at this light level. I would suggest picking a different apeture, or switch the camera to full automatic mode via the dial on the top left of the camera.

The canra says DCF full error agter taking 7 pictuturs


Hi. The PL80 has an 86MB internal memory so it does not sound as if there is anything wrong. However you can buy an SD or SDHC memory card and use that as well, so you can take a lot more pictures.

The number of pictures which can be stored depends on the size of the internal memory, or the extra memory card, and whether you set the camera to record the images in 'Normal', 'fine', or 'super fine' mode. This determines how compressed the images will be, and how much memory each one will use up.

A 1GB card would give around 160 pictures in super fine mode. Have fun with your camera!

How do you change the shutter speeds on an pentax k100 super, when it is on the AUTO PICT setting?


You can't.

In Auto Pict mode the camera selects the best of the pre-set Scene modes for the photograph which you're about to take. It's basically a variation of fully automatic mode, so the camera selects everything for you.

Auto Pict and Auto are designed to let anyone pick up your camera and take a fully automated snapshot without needing to worry about what settings to use.

To alter the shutter speeds you need to select an appropriate mode such as shutter priority or manual.

Low resolution pictures from my Casio Exlim EX-Z750


Depending on what you're photographing, you can sometimes put it on micro mode (the super zoom mode). Whether or not you can do this, you should definintly bump it into fine or best quality, the more memory the picture takes up the better.

Ideal camera for uses like this would be one around 10 megapixels, this is the most that you should need unless you plan on blowing the pictures up very much larger than 8x10.

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
