No

I only say "no" because an 8 megapixel camera would be taking pictures from 640x480 up to <something huge>x<something else huge>

In any case if you were to ask "HOW" to change the capture resolution, on most camera's you'd go into the camera setup menu, then into the picture quality settings, and usually choose between low, medium, and high... or good, better, best... depends on the camera, but it means the same thing =-]

    Well, the higher the numbers, the more pixels per square inch you will get. Higher numbers = higher resolution.



    I'm not sure what the "S" infront of those resolutions stands for, but it appears there are doubles. You're at the highest resolution possible, but i'm guessing the "S" is a quality thing.



    "S" could be something to do with the compression settings that the camera uses to store the JPEG files.



    In any case, you can see that 144 pixels and 300 pixels doesn't really make sense as far as resolutions go, and you're on the best possible resolution already!



    144 and 300 sound more like a "dots per inch" rating that you'd normally see when scanning with a scanner or printing with a printer.

300 dpi image change


Yes you can. But 300 dpi is nothing. You could compare this to a question like, fits a yard in a football field.
When talking about 300 dpi, you also must know how big a picture has to be.
According to the manual, your camera can shoot pictures with 4288 by 3216 pixels. When you want to print 300 dpi that is 14 inch by 12 inch pictures. If you want to shoot pictures for smaller results like 6 inch by 4 inch or 7 inch by 5, you can chose a smaller resolution.
Don't be confused by the technical terms of 300 dpi. This is only used in the printing industry. I already printed till 4 times the resolution that was theoretical possible, and still the pictures look very good.
If you have a great picture, shot in the highest resolution, you should be able to make a print of more that 5 or 6 feet and still have a great picture

Pixel problem, all pictures taken have poor pixel resolution


It sounds like you set the file settings to a small file size - perhaps in order to get more photos on a single memory card. You need to change the setting to the largest file size possible, at the highest quality. The steps for this will be in your manual. If you need detailed instructions and don't have your manual, let me know and I'll lookup your manual online.

Memory card for Olympus FE270


The larger the image, the more space it consumes, your new camera is producing files that are twice as large as the old one did. Buy a larger memory card, they are quite inexpensive these days.

Weatherproof


The Olympus Stylus 300/400 Digital is the first metal-bodied digital camera in the world to feature protection equivalent to IEC Standard publication 529 IPX4. The camera will not be damaged by water splashed from any direction. The camera can be used outside in adverse weather conditions. If you are taking pictures when the camera is exposed to rain or snow, make sure that the optical components (lens, viewfinder, flash) are not covered with water. Water droplets on the lens may affect image quality. The Stylus 300/400 Digital is designed to operate at ambient temperature 32°-104°F and relative humidity 30-90%. Please note that the camera is weatherproof, not waterproof, and can not be immersed in water. Olympus will not assume any responsibility for any camera damage caused by water getting inside as a result of misuse by the user.
