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.

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 find shooting in SHQ that it still drains my battery too fast


More better quality = larger size picture = more information to write to memory. Hence, less shots...

How long do the normal batteries last?


I use a 2500L for studio portraits and the E10 is on order. Invest in the remote release (the E10 is a huge improvement over the 2500L on that score), the ac adaptor - no need for extra batteries at all and if you wire the computer to the camera you will only need one (fairly large) memory card. The last facility I just mentioned will be an absolute boon in the studio - not so outside. I have an iBook with USB and the way I have had it explained to me is that the camera memory card physically mounts on the desktop of the computer just like another storage device. The thing I hate about compact flash cards is the adaptor that I need to use to download to my iMac and iBook makes things very fiddly but CF cards are much more robust than Smat Media. In a studio with the E10 you would never need to remove the card from the camera! The benefits are huge. Take a shot (or shots) copy them straight onto your hard disk, open them, manipulate them and print them. And take the money! One other thing. I always shoot at the highest resolution with no compression - ie TIFF files. On the E10 they are 12 megabytes each I guarantee that the moment you choose to shoot images at the lower
