Spend a couple of dollars and buy a second 1 GB SD card for about AU$10 (even less duty free or in a proper country) or you can hit the function button in capture mode. Then go down to the L at the bottom left and you can pick your image resolution. It also shows the number of shots that will fit on the card and then hit SET to pick the 'fineness' setting to save even more space.

I have taken only 8 snaps in my samsung L313 camera and for the next snap thr is a message as memory full... pls help me to come out of the problem


Hi, If you just bought the camera I'm betting you maybe didn't get a memory card yet, if this is so you will need to adjust the picture quality-the higher the mega pixels the more memory each shot takes-and working with just the internal memory alone that sounds like what is happening there. Just go into menu and select an" image size " that takes less space example: in menu one of the first things you may see are 12M,8M,6M,6M,etc.. ( when you successfully do this you should see an icon indicating how many pics you have left to shoot-this will increase and decrease according to image Size. I hope this helps, please comment back and thanks for asking FixYa, good luck prodzilla

On my sony dslr a 300 the steady shot warning flashes at the bottom of the view screen like it is not able to steady the shot. this makes it is very hard to take a clear picture without it working...


Before you junk it, double check to make sure steady shot wasn't turned off. Also see if raising the ISO settings and increasing the aperture size fixes the motion blur (this will make image noise and depth of view blur increase though). Lastly Try resetting the camera to factory settings as a last resort.

Hope this helps.

I dont know if this is a problem with my camera or my memory card but I can only take 57 pictures and when I first got my camera I could take 120+.


Did you change the setting of the image size? If you increased it - eg going from a medium jpeg to a large jpeg each shot would be taking up more room on your memory card.

My Kodak Easyshare V1233 comes on stating "Interna; Memory Filled" I went in and cleaned it. But it seems like I only get 5 pictures that I can take after that. I take the five (the number in...


The V1233 has 32MB of internal memory. At 12MP, each image file is probably about 5 or 6MB in size. 32MB of memory will only hold 5 6MB files.

To take more pictures, insert a memory card into the card slot.

This is just a question I bought a 2 G B camea card for a Canon 510 power shot 3.2 megapixels so how many pictures will I be able to take?


That depends on several factors. Obviously a 3MP image is going to be larger than a 2MP image and thus you'll fit fewer of them on a card. Image quality also affects the size of the file and thus the number of them you can put on the card. The subject of the picture will also affect the size of the picture, the more detail in the scene the more bytes it will require.

This page on the manufacturer's web site gives rough estimates of the file size (and capacity) for the various modes: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=320&modelid=11086#ModelTechSpecsAct

How can I increase the total number of pictures to


Purchase at least one xD-Picture card up to 2GB in size. Or you can use microSD and microSDHC cards using the supplied adapter.

The number of pictures you can store depends on the size of the card, image resolution, and other factors. Obviously, with more cards you can take more pictures.

Panasonic DMC-TZ3 pictures never seem crisp and clear


TZ stands for Travel Zoom, which is code for Outside View shots. The TZ is supper in good light, not so much in lower light.

In side shots need to be with 8 feet of subject so the flash can reach. Use ISO and IS mode 2 settings, especially IS(Image Stabilization) on zoomed shots where ANY camera movement becomes amplified by the ZOOM.

Lastly, camera movement and/or subject movement will add blur to a shot. Squeeze off shot, don't push it off. Try to brace your camera against another object when possible, or hold you elbows against your sides when you can't. Treat taking a pic shot like you were taking a rifle shot. Stabilize yourself when possible and gradually squeeze off the shot when possible.

When low light cannot be avoided, try the night shot setting, which will keep the shutter open longer to gather more light, but will be much more venerable to camea movement at the same time.

Check the Manual or the Sony web site to get an understanding of Multi burst You could simply type Multiburst in your search engine. I gather it is a series of individual still s that play sequentially, but check it out.

Image Quality decrease


Um ok. first off, chill with the images being described in inches. The DSC-S40 is way too simple to get lost with. You only have 2 options to play with. One is the resolution which you want to be as high as possible unless you have some special reason for it not to be. Two is you have 2 image quality settings to choose from(Fine and Standard). choose "fine" of course for best results. yes the files size will be a bit larger, but you get the best possible image. Remeber, this is considered a cheap camera, so you want the most it can offer.

Now about the file size anomalies. Dont worry about it. Here is the only conclusion I can come up with that sounds logical. .JPG and most "compressed" image types will never be the same size if taken from a camera unless the same exact picture is shot 2 times in a row very fast witout the camera moving. files size on a compressed image depends on the amount of color variations the camera has to render into a file. The more color variations, the more data the .JPG file contains. It is natural for file sizes from a camera to differ. If you set your camera at 4M and take a picture, and then you set it to 3M and try to take the same picture again thinking it will save space, in theory this is true, but remeber how "compressed" images are rendered. You may have had only the slightest difference of light change on the next pitcture you took . This can have a significant impact on the file size, and can result in a lower res image being bigger in file size than the higher res image. Now, if you are talking a huge difference like 3M@1500kb yet 4M gives you 500kb, then you either have it set to "standard" quality, or you are really lost in this stuff.

But anyway, I hope this is plenty of info. And makes plenty of sense to anyone who understands compressed images.

Best picture size to use


The higher quality will not degrade the prints, you can always reduce the size for printing, if you wish. (Although it shouldn't matter, if the printer is not able to print all the pixels due to limited resolution, it will downsize properly, anyway). The only drawbacks are, as you noted, increased size/storage requirements. I would shot always in the biggest possible size and with fine JPEG (no sense in using TIFF - the quality is not so different that you ever notive it). The reason for always using the biggest size is that you can later crop and have better chances at postprocessing. When "THE" shot comes your way, you don't want to accidentily store it in all the glory of 800x600 pixels :) (Switching sizes is a bad idea, you inevitable forget to switch the size back and shot an entire afternoon in the small size. Been there, done that, did not get the pixels back :)
