Question about Olympus Camedia C-2100 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera
I am very unhappy with the quality of the pictures- variable exposure (often overexposed), lack of sharpness and detail. sometimes excellent but these pics. tend to be indoor flash pictures taken at less than 10 feet. Also, white pinhead dot in the middle of the LCD. See little difference between HQ and SHQ except for memory used. From the nature of the reviews and the comments posted on this forum, I think I got a camera with a problem. Any ideas before I pack it up an ship it back? Also, what do you think, replace it with another 2100UZ or buy something else. This is my first digital camera but I am getting better results from my cheap ($90) scanner. If I should purchase something else, what do you suggest. Truly want to begin to move from film photography to digital, or at least expand my photographic options.

Is the white dot in the viewfinder? I could see that getting very annoying so I'd probably send it back. The shots I've taken indoors with the flash on the c2100 have not had any problems with over exposure. There are both exposure and flash compensation settings in the camera, make sure you haven't changed them by accident. If this is your first digital you have to get used to the way the images look, it's not the same as film. At first digial images look "soft" and more grainy, more so if you look at them at 1:1. I usually view them so they are about 8" wide on the screen, or about 1:2. As the number of pixels goes up the difference between different compression levels becomes less noticable. If you shoot in 640x480 mode you'll see a difference between high and normal. At full resolution on some shots you'll get better color on SHQ over HQ. And TIFF is rarely any better than SHQ.
