We have a tele conversion lens and do not know how to use it. We also have a wide conversion lens and get blurry pictures on both at times. I have filter kits polarized and the nd8 30mm and need to know when to use them. eg. on the beach or through a window? Any info would be appreciated.
Thank-you Garry

Hi i have an Olypmus UZ800 and it takes only 72 dpi photos, how can i change to 300 dpi, i must insist that i use FINE picture quality


Please don't confuse the input resolution with the print resolution. DPI controls how many dots per inch are printed. It has nothing to do with how the picture is taken, that's controlled by the input resolution (also called image size). The image quality has nothing to do with either, it controls how much the image is compressed before being stored.

Input resolution (image size) is controlled by the "IMAGE SIZE" entry in the Shooting menu. 14 megapixels is the best this camera can do.

Image quality is controlled by the "COMPRESSION" entry in the Shooting menu. FINE is the best quality, least compression.

The DPI is controlled by whatever program you're using to print your picture. Were you to print a 14-megapixel picture at 72 DPI, you would get a picture that's almost 5 feet by 4 feet. Were you to print the same picture at 300 DPI, you would get a picture that's about 14 inches by 11 inches. If you wanted to print a 6 inch by 4 inch picture, you would have to print at about 700 DPI.

I need to know how to increase the size of the pictures to at least 100 for publication in a magazine, the camera is a Lumix DMC-FS42


You have to set the camera for high resolution images BEFORE you take the pictures. If you try to make them bigger later (in a computer, you can't do it in camera), you will get fuzziness or blockiness.

I don't know what you mean by "100". On my Lumix, the picture resolutions are given in pixels, like 2560x1920 or 640x480. The larger numbers are the higher resolutions, and for best quality (and biggest native size), you will want the highest resolution available in your camera. You will also want to set the compression to the finest setting. These settings are on the REC settings screen, which is the first to come up when you press the menu button.

Higher resolution/quality photos will require more storage space in memory, so you might want to get another or a bigger memory card.

How to use change resolution


Hi,

The screen resolution of the Camera cannot be changed. The option in the Camera is to change the Image size which will increase the MegaPixel rate of the Camera. This can also be called as resolution. This can be changed by touching the Image Size icon displayed on the Camera screen. The settings available for Still Image Settings and Movie Image Settings in the DSCT70 Camera are given in the image given below:

I have a panasonic DMC-Fz8 12x optical zoom camera. How can I adjust the resolution? When I get my pictures developed they are low resolution; you can see the pixels.


Hi!

You need to change the PRINT SIZE and image QUALITY to have have a better picture. Try these:

Press 3049231.jpg then select aa5a871.jpg(Picture Size) . You will be given an option for the number of

pixels - ranges from 0.3 to 7 Megapixel. For better print quality, select 7M.

Next thing that you need to change is the Quality. You need to go back to Menu then 4e59df3.jpg. These are your options for quality:

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

How do I increase the dpi on TZ5


Hi - When talking about resolution in digital photography there are two main meanings.
One is the "pixel count resolution" and the other "embedded resolution". So for example your camera could record 2272*1704 as the actual pixel count resolution and set 72 as the embedded resolution that tells other software (for example photoshop) what the intended use of the picture will be. 72 ppi is the default for web pictures. You can change this in photoshop by going to the "Image" tab & select image size. The window that opens will show you the pixel dimensions i.e. pixel count resolution and the document size & resolution 72. You just change it in your software to 300 for printing. In Photoshop you can change the default to 300 by going "edit", "preferences", "units & rulers" and setting the values for "new document preset resolutions".

So for your camera the embedded resolution is 180 which you can only change in your PC software.

This is a complex subject, I recommend looking at the following web page:

What you are seeing is the difference between "pixel count resolution" and "embedded resolution". So in your example 2272*1704 is the actual pixel count resolution as recorded by the camera & 72 is the embedded resolution that tells the software (in this case photoshop) what the intended use of the picture will be. 72 ppi is the default for web pictures. You can change this in photoshop by going to the "Image" tab & select image size.

How can I store more pictures in the camera?


The standard 2MB internal flash memory stores either 60 standard resolution images or 30 high resolution images. EPSON Accessories offers the PhotoSpan 2MB memory module (A882401) which increases picture storage to 65 high resolution or 130 standard resolution images. The PhotoSpan 4MB memory module (A882411) makes it possible to take 100 high resolution or 200 standard resolution images.
