    The Olympus SP 510UZ does not have a facility to change the ISO setting.

    A reset of the settings has seemed to fix the problem

    Thanks

This depends what mode you are in. The camera if set to AUTO, will compensate for exposure if there is not enough light (shooting inside, morning, evening) or your flash is off. Also OLYMPUS related cameras that with the IMAGE STABILIZATION for most point-and-shoot and UZ models use a digital image stabilization method where they up the ISO to compensate for handheld/low light movement. So make sure you are not in the mode with the HANDS, THE RUNNER, CANDLE, NIGHTIME, or in one of the guidance modes.

What camera?
Is it a pocket camera where the lens in internal? that would explain some of it.
Go into your menu and look up ISO and make sure its not set to anything above 400 if you are worried about digital grain or noise.
for the sharpest image you should have it set to the lowest speed setting.

hope that helps,
Caleb

Why are most of my photos grainy? I have read all about my settings but I can't find what I am doing wrong please help


Graininess can be caused by a high ISO setting while taking pictures in low light situations. You could also have the picture quality set to a low megapixel setting.

I am not happy about the way my photos are turning out they have graininess quality. Can you help me?


In low light, when taking photos on 'automatic', the camera may set the ISO to high sensitivity which can give a grainy image. In the menus you could try switching ISO out of automatic and set it to 100 at most.

Indoor photos are generally poor quality - PLEASE HELP!


Raise the ISO, set the camera to take pics at the maximum megapixels and highest quality, check your white balance....what is it set for?...auto white balance or something else? Experiment with different settings under different lights to see what you like best.

You need to check your ISO setting and the picture quality you have your camera set to. It should be at the maximum megapixels and fine quality and the ISO should be below 800 or even 400.

Very poor quality pictures; grainy.


This is easily fixed - go into MENU and you will find a picture quality Q. This is designed to go from FINE - Medium - POOR in order to enable you to take more photos on you cameras memory. Install at least a 1gb memory stick into your camera and then choose HIGHEST QUALITY you will now be able to get plenty a photos at the highest quality possible gor the camera with an 8.2 megapixal those photos should be really nice.

Very grainy pictures indoors at night


If you can adjust the ISO sensitivity to a lower number then the graininess will be reduced.

However, by reducing the ISO, you will need a slower shutter speed and a larger aperture. A tripod, table or other support may be necessary.

The "noise reduction" setting on the camera can also be adjusted a step up.

Taking pictures at full resolution and fine compression will also help.

Overall, at least try lowering the ISO, and using the flash brighter.

Grainy Pictures


This camera with the ISO set to 100 ASA, the electronic zoom turned off, and with the mode on Automatic "A", should take very good pictures.

I would give the camera to the manufacture for service, and include some samples of what the results are. It would be recomended to do this while the camera is under warranty.

Quality too low for 4x6 prints


A P72 should be good enough for 4x6 prints. Are you shooting at the maximum resolution? At 3.2 Megapixels you should be able to print at 4x6" at 250dpi (which although not ideal is better than that of most magazine printing!)

The graininess of your images is not to do with resolution but rather sensitivity and the processing engine in the camera. Are you shooting in bright light, or mainly with the flash? If it is the latter, I'm afraid you're always going to have the picture noise (graininess) with this camera.

If you're going to upgrade, look for a model with good low light capabilities and a good lens. www.dpreview.com is an excellent resource for comparison shopping.

Grainy pictures with the Sony DSC - P150


Don't Rush Out Just Yet. Two possibilities. 1. You have the camera set incorrectly. 2. You have the printer set incorrectly.
