Question about Olympus Camedia C-2500L Digital Camera

1 Answer

When I printed the photos none of them was even close to film-based photos

I got my C-2500L yesterday. This is my first digital camera. I shot a dozen SHQ frames last night. They all look great on the monitor. But when I printed them with my Lexmark 3200 (1200 by 1200 dpi), using photo papers, none of them was even close to film-based photos (4 by 6). Could anyone please tell me if I need to get a better printer/better paper, or just improve my skill? I greatly appreciate your help.

Re: When I printed the photos none of them was even close...

Try using a good program like Photoshop and when you adjust for printing...make sure you DO NOT subsample the image so it can fit on a 4x6 photo paper page. What I mean by that, is in fact reduce the image to fit on such a small page but do not kill the resolution.... In Photoshop, you would open up Image Size under the Image menu and turn uncheck resample image...as you adjust for paper size...you will notice that your resolution stays intact on the top of the window. I assume that is your problem since the 2500 is highres and should give you fantastic results in a 4x6 format.....

I have the rebel xti and my pictures are hit or miss. most of the time my close up pictures print out the best. I cannot pin point the problem with the other pictures. For example, pictures taken inside...


i am a digital photographer, there could be many things causing this, i'm assuming it is in the camera. once you rest the camera back to defaults, set it at the "most" auto setting you have. go outside, point it at something typical like a tree, car, anything other than the sky or snow or anything black. we need to get a photo from something normal colored to see what the camera is doing. if everything is set to default it will give you a good picture. from your description i'm assuming the photos you have are being shot at very high iso speeds and/or very low shutter speedds which indicates a setting problem. try it and let me know what you find. if you can post the picture here, i might be able to get the data from the photo to help figure this out.

My pictures are all coming out very blurry


With digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.

Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.

Finally, make sure that you have not left the camera in Macro mode. This is a special extreme close-up mode offered by some cameras, and it does not allow autofocus on objects at normal distances. The icon for Macro mode is a little flower.

If none of these is the problem, there may be a fault requiring service (probably not economically viable unless they will do it under warranty).

2 problems. I have the Coolpix L100. Sometimes my photos are blurry and also. there is a delay when I snap a photo which isnt good when trying to get action photos.


With autofocus digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.

Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.

If you take lots of action pictures, you will have to work on a technique of partially pressing the shutter to get focus in anticipation of the shot (perhaps focussing on where the action will occur), then holding it part-pressed until the moment you want to capture. This is really no more of a problem than setting an anticipatory focus on a manual focussing film camera use to be. Some more complex digital cameras will allow you to turn off auto focus and focus manually.

If it takes normal pictures even with the black display, your LCD display is likely shot. If photos come out black, chances are that your shutter is stuck in the closed position. Sorry, but there is no safe DIY fix for either problem The camera will require professional repair.

Ixus 750 Blurred photos shot at a distance greater than a meter.


Check to see that the camera is not in "macro" mode, which would only allow focusing at a close range, but not allow focusing at beyond about 2 meters (look for the "flower" symbol to tell you that macro is activated). Could also be an out of adjustment lens, due to impact or force. Also check to make sure it's not as simple as a dirty lens. Digital cameras are more succeptable to blurry pictures from a smudged lens than film cameras were. Of course, that wouldn't explain why close shots are OK but distant ones aren't. Probably the first two suggestions.

Good book for a beginner?


have you set it to macro mode? (little flower icon on the right cursor) this function will allow you to get within about 2cm of the subject, however do not use the zoom as the lens cannot focus close enough. To get results any closer you will be looking at an slr and a budget on a few thousand! If enabling macro and not using zoom to allow the lens to focus doesn't get you close enough in you can always enlarge and crop images. have a look on www.picture-skew.blogspot.com i've taken some macros of flowers and bugs, this camera can capture the hairs on an ants back or the individual lenses of a flys compound lens eye.

persevere with this camera, for a very small budget you will get amazing results, ISO refers to the speed of 'film', it comes from the dark old ages of 35mm film cameras. Basically a low ISO is the lowest sensitivity to light and gives the best image quality, however as the ccd is less responsive to the light the camera holds the shutter open for longer. The higher the ISO the more sensitive the ccd but the greater the noise and lower the quality of picture.

Books, try looking for more photography orientated books and less digital camera based books. An upto date photography book will tell you all the technical information about how to take a good picture for any given senario.

if you would like any further advice email me (address on the blogspot)

make sure you are using the correct type of paper. If you aren't using the long kind with the perforated edges then it isn't going to feed.

Still photos (what you think of as printable photos) and movies (video clips) are completely different beasts, unfortunately. In order to extract or print individual frames within a movie, you will need some sort of movie player/editor software. Standard "photo"-oriented software won't know how to deal with video clips.
