I have an Olympus Camedia C-350 which will not save it's resolution settings. It keeps reverting back to the HQ setting. I can change to SHQ, SQ1 and SQ2 and it stays on these settings all the time the camera is switched on but when I turn it off and back on again the resolution has reverted back to HQ.
Any ideas please?.

Re: Selected resolution will not save
You need to change the setting in the Menu of ALL RESET from ON to OFF so that it will retain any setting changes that you make. To do this Press Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Setup tab - right arrow to All Reset - right arrow and choose Off and then press Ok. This will retain the mode setting until you manually change it again or change all reset back to On.

You need to go to the Menu and set the value for All Reset from ON to OFF. This will retain any setting changes that you make in the camera once it is powered off and back on. Press Ok - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Setup tab - right arrow to All Reset - then right arrow over to the selections of ON or OFF. Change it to OFF and press OK. It should retain SQ2 until you switch All Reset back to ON or manually change the resolution to be something else.
No, it resets itself because it is an older camera.Most older cameras will, once turned off, return to their original settings. So, if you want it to be 76 frames, you will have to do that each time you turn on your camera.
The image quality should stay at what previously set not keep reverting to a 'default'
Have you studied the manual re this ?.
There is usually a more comprehensive manual on the CD in a PDF file

The details for each record mode are as follows:
RAW: RAW data is unprocessed image data in its original state to which white balance, sharpness, contrast, color conversion and other processes have not been applied. CAMEDIA Master can be used to display RAW data and save it in other image formats. A RAW plug-in is also available for Adobe Photoshop which also provides the ability to process images in 32-bit color depth.
TIFF: This is the highest-quality mode. images are saved as uncompressed data, which is the best for printing or image processing on a computer.
SHQ: This is a high quality mode using the JPEG format. Because the compression rate is very low, high quality images can be stored.
HQ: This is a high quality mode using JPEG format, with medium compression. Because the compression rate is higher than SHQ, file sizes are smaller. More images can be saved to a card. The file size can be changed in the 3:2 or Enlarge size mode as well as SHQ.
3:2 Mode: Ordinarily the image aspect ratio is set to 4:3. Due to change the ratio to 3:2, the picture size becomes 2592 x 1728 so that the image can be printed without losing the image borders at a photo lab. 3:2 can be set in the TIFF, SHQ, or HQ mode.
SQ1/SQ2: SQ1 is used for resolutions above 1600 x1200 and SQ2 is used for resolutions below 1600 x1200. For both, you can choose high compression to reduce noise or normal compression to save more images.
The functions accessed from the arrow pad—Self-Timer (arrow left key), Exposure Compensation for adjusting brightness (up arrow key), Macro and Super Macro Modes for close-up photos (right arrow key)—will all be reset using the RESET arrow pad button. Also, the quality/resolution will be set back to the default of HQ. Settings such as language, date and time, and sleep time settings are not changed by using the reset button. These settings need to be manually selected through the menus in order to reset or change them.
