Question about Olympus D-340R Digital Camera

1 Answer

Photos are so soft

I purchased the Olympus D340R last week and I was so thrilled, this is my first digital camera.But when I received my flashpath adapter and downloaded my pictures I was very disapointed,all my photos are so soft,not at all like the sample photos I viewed at various sites on the web.I've read the owners manual thoroughly and have done some sharpening in photo deluxe,Ive also tried a tripod.But nothing has worked also the colors are dull.Could this camera be a lemon,should I take it back or am I doing something wrong.

My best advice to you, assuming you haven't got a real problem with the focusing mechanisms in your cameras, is to downsize your images by half in each dimension (e.g., 1280 x 1024 -> 640 x 512) for viewing. At that resolution the images should look as sharp and crisp as any you've seen. Remember that sample photos you find on the net are usually the cream of the crop, and what most people publish has been processed in their digital darkrooms.

Very little colour in the photos

Yes, the soft color saturation and soft focus are major shortcomings of the SP800UZ. On previous SP series camera one could adjust both the color saturation and sharpness before taking a photo.

Which program do I need to download photos from my olympus fe-270

If your camera uses a memory card, just purchase an inexpensive card reader and download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. Double-click that to open your pictures.

Just purchased this camera but there is no software or manual with it. Is there a site to download the software?

Here is a link to the driver download that you will need. Download and install on your computer.

Here is the other software (which you do not really need). As long as you install the drivers, you can use any software that you prefer to edit photos, etc.

I hope this helps and good luck.

Poor Resolution

e sure the quality setting is the highest - 7 megapixels. Otherwise, why buy a 7MP if you shoot at 3MP. The Canon 750 seems to have excellent picture quality where the Olympus has soft focusing (reviews at C-net).

To transfer pictures: 1. Remove the memory card from the camera. 2. Insert the memory card into the floppy disk adapter. Make sure that you insert the memory card into the adapter with the gold side of the memory card facing you and to the right and the silver side of the adapter facing away from you. 3.

How to copy panorama feature?

The panorama feature cannot be copied, it is 'firmware' of sorts that is integrated into the card itself. Olympus does offer several types of 'special' firmware in their branded SmartMedia cards (I believe there was a special one for printing T-Shirts and Mugs and the like....don't recall exactly, but did have a special supplement when I bought my C-1400XL).
