Question about Olympus FE47 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Got an FE47 14MP but the sharpness of the pictures is a disaster. I have tried using different options in different light, background and environment but nothing changed. Lens is perfectly clean too. I have taken it to the Olympus agent who has sent it to Portugal for checking and they claim that the camera is according to master sample. Any ideas on what else I can do?

    Hello & thanks for your prompt reply.



    Wouldn't a bad focus gear linkage would have been detected when I have sent the camera for checking 3 times? They told me every time they checked it against the master sample it resulted OK!

The only option is to take sample photo's and put it on photographic paper to prove your point and take it to the Olympus agent to show him the problem, "take few photo's" the problem you are describing is in the focus mechanism of the lens itself, caused by a bad motor or gear linkage.

    Yes! it should have, but I would like to see how an identical unit would stand up, it is clear to me somebody is not doing their job, Is there an independant camera shop in the area that can give a second opinion? if so that might be the only option, it would at least prove your point.

    Lack of definition, blurriness.


    Experiment with lowering the "exposure compensation" setting until you get the desired results. Also, don't forget to use a tripod.

    Screen returned from supplier background bright pink, how do I change to white background.


    To check if the video card or the Sharp LCD monitor is faulty, connect a different monitor to the computer. If this monitor displays a normal image then the video card is OK and the Sharp LCD monitor's back-light is faulty. Send it back to the supplier to have it fixed (they should not have reurned it to you in this condition).
    If the other monitor also displays a bright pink background then the video card is faulty and needs to be replaced.

    Best settings to photo jewelry upclose for sale on internet


    The best setting really depends on the type of pictures you want. Do you want a white background and a completely focused picture or do you want a natural background and more artistic type of picture? The latter is easier to produce as it can be done with a soft hand-held flash and almost any kind of natural lighting conditions and you can put it on a surface according to what you want to get - reflection, colors, shadows and what not. Getting a white background takes more lighting effort and way more Photoshop to cut the item from the background.

    Background is overexposed


    So, the problem doesn't seem to be the flash if the actual subject in the foreground is exposed properly. My guess is that the background is being lit by another light source. Typically, your camera uses a flash for dark areas or what it gauges as a dark area. This doesn't adjust the background for additional light sources. For example, if you're standing outside and there's a tree covering someone that you're taking a picture of your flash will adjust to "properly" light that individual. However, because the flash was used for the main subject, the background is actually now overexposed. The overexposed background will show up as a brightly lit area because the camera had to adjust for the foreground. This will actually reverse itself when it's dark out - meaning if the background and foreground are dark, the flash will expose the foreground, but the background will be black. Hopefully, that helps you understand lighting and exposure. Now, to fix this problem when shooting, you would need to consider several options - 1. SLR camera with aperture and f-stop settings as well as compensation controls. This will allow you to control every element of the exposure, but you still need to be aware of the lighting behind the "subject" to properly expose your shots. 2. backlighting compensation - common settings on both SLR and point and shoot cameras that makes auto lighting conversions for backlighting and other common lighting issues. Test whatever options are on your camera to see what works best for your specific problem. 3. Photoshop retouching - you may take one shot with your subject exposed properly and a second shot with the background then merge the images together. 4. using a tripod to shoot without using the flash - this may give you the closest exposure to exactly what you see when looking at your subject.

    Hi,
    Another option is to view the picture you want using the "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer" then right-click on the image and click on "Set as Desktop Background". This should help you have a new background.
