Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10 Digital Camera

Prints look different from PC.

Any idea what causes the prints to look so different from PC. Was it the touch ups that were performed? Or maybe the exp I was using? Or all the digital cameras pictures have a bit of noise when printing? Maybe KODAK machine? This is my first Digital camera, therefore the only pics. I can compare it to the ones from a regular camera.

Re: Prints look different from PC.

If all else fails, try http://www.shutterfly.com - I've gotten *excellent* printing results from them with images from my FZ1, way beyond 8X10 sizes. At Shutterfly, and others also, I'm sure, you can do some tweaking of color balance, and crop, on-line, after your image is uploaded before ordering prints.

Re: Prints look different from PC.

Like in film, most in-store (or if they use outside print houses) operates on a default settings/automatic mode which may not necessarily match individual image settings. Tweaking individual batch of order is just not economically feasible. As one has pointed out, better to use those newer print houses that specializes in digital images or other print store until you find more pleasing results. If you use online storage/site, they usually have printing services and results are much better.

Re: Prints look different from PC.

I had that exact same problem. Photos look great on my monitor but when I had them printed at Wal Mart on the Kodak machine they look very dark and noisey. Then had them printed at their one hour photo and they look quite a bit better but still a little dark. Had the same pictures processed on line with Ofoto and they turned out great. So you may want to try another machine or place and see if you get different results. And like the other post also check your monitor settings.

Re: Prints look different from PC.

Just a guess but I imagine your monitor needs adjusted, here is a link http://www.normankoren.com/... ...akingfineprints1A.html#Monitor_test_pattern If you do a search here for monitor calibration you will find lots of opinions. Usually the printed version looks better than the monitor shows. It is my guess that you are sharpening way to much to make it look good on your monitor. All monitors are different , which is one reason when you send someone a picture that you really think is terrific only to find that they don't think much of it. Maybe since you have the Kodak version you could adjust your monitor to look like it, that way when you edit you will not overdo it.

How do i set my tz6 to 300 dpi


DPI (dots per inch) is an output parameter and is irrelevant to the camera.

Let's say you took a picture and want to make some prints of it. You make a 4x6 print and a 8x12 print. Those will be printed at different DPI settings but It's exactly the same file from the camera, just printed at different sizes. The camera can't know what size prints you might make from the picture, so it simply puts in a default value.

If you really want to change the DPI setting as recorded in the file, you need to do it on a computer using a photo editing program.

What causes a orange picture on the screen, also even on prints we have a orange glow on the pictures. I also can take several pictures on a rug & many prints come out with different shades. Some...


Sound like a malfunctioning CCD-image sensor. Rare, but possible problem with your LCD screenviewer... in both cases (LCD or CCD) this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Samsung service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Hope this helps

How do I change resolution for pictures on camera? What should the resolution be set at?


Press the Menu/OK button. Repeatedly touch the down-arrow function area until you see the "Image Size" option. Touch the MP icon area to enter the image size menu. Touch the left-arrow function area to select the desired image size. Press the Menu/OK button to confirm, save, and exit.

What do you want the resolution set at? What do you want to do with the pictures? If all you want to do with them is to send them by email or to put them on the web, the VGA setting (640x480) is probably enough. If you don't ever print pictures larger than 4x6 inches, the 3M setting (2048x1536) is probably adequate. If you're going to want larger prints, the 8M setting (3264x2448) will let you make 8x10 prints and even larger.

Pentax k10d won't produce accurate prints. Prints look muddy


Hi It's not likely to be a camera problem, in fact it's highly unlikely.
The big issue with printing colour is (as you've found) matching what you see on your monitor to what comes out on the paper. If you are serious about printing then you need to profile your system. I'm guessing that when you say you calibrated your monitor you just did a simple grey point adjustment to set the gamma. That's all very well but the printer is a completely separate item. It doesn't know that you adjusted the grey point and so it carries on as before (nor is there any way of it knowing). Your printer has to be set up as well - and it has to be set for whatever ink and paper combination you are using - and it will be different for each different type of paper.
If you look in the small ads in the more serious photo mags you should find adverts for companies who will provide you with profiling services.
There is a system called 'Colorsync' which is supposed to automatically do this for you. It works for some but not for others.

Changing the resolution on my camera before i go to photoshop


using the RAW setting will give a higher quality photo, the other formats compress to jpeg causing you to loose some of the original photo information. the ZoomBrowser EX program allows you to edit the RAW image, I recommend getting the large prints done at Kinkos or some place like that. I've gotten poster size prints done that look very clear. Use a tripod to combat camera shake, it is very apperent at that size of print. Also a low ISO to help reduce noise.

Re-Sized Photos are Grainy


Hi,

This camera takes pictures with a Ppi of 72. That is why the pictures look huge on the screen. To get good quality prints you need to have at least 200 ppi, or even better, 300 ppi.

Or, the contrast of the pictures may be to low. I have an FZ7 too, and I always tweak the contrast and color saturation before outputting.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. images straight from the FZ7 are generally low in contrast.

2. Pictures that are low in contrast might not look too bad on screen, but when they are printed they will look slightly greyish.

3. Low ppi pictures look fuzzy in print.

Maybe you can post a sample original picture??

Prints have darker same color circles are the same size.


The ccd sensor is dirty. Have it cleaned at a camera shop. You can do yourself with sensor swabs and eclipse fluid but it a is very delicate operation. Local shop here cleaning is $45 and no spots, well worth it.

Best picture size to use


The higher quality will not degrade the prints, you can always reduce the size for printing, if you wish. (Although it shouldn't matter, if the printer is not able to print all the pixels due to limited resolution, it will downsize properly, anyway). The only drawbacks are, as you noted, increased size/storage requirements. I would shot always in the biggest possible size and with fine JPEG (no sense in using TIFF - the quality is not so different that you ever notive it). The reason for always using the biggest size is that you can later crop and have better chances at postprocessing. When "THE" shot comes your way, you don't want to accidentily store it in all the glory of 800x600 pixels :) (Switching sizes is a bad idea, you inevitable forget to switch the size back and shot an entire afternoon in the small size. Been there, done that, did not get the pixels back :)

Traditional photo prints


Most photo processing centers or digital printing Kiosks can make traditional photo prints from a digital camera. There are also many on-line photo processors which conveniently deliver prints by mail. You can also make prints yourself if you have a photo quality printer like the Olympus P-400 printer.
