Question about Olympus Camedia C-3030 Zoom Digital Camera

Are there any custom settings that *should* be changed initially

I am, however, not all that interested in changing and rechanging any of the camera's options. I pretty much just want to set it up at the SHQ setting initially and then always be ready to go (most of my shots are indoors, with some daytime outdoor shots). With that in mind, are there any custom settings that *should* be changed initially (I guess I'm thinking in regard to white balance, etc.) and then I can forget about it?

Re: Are there any custom settings that *should* be...

I have the C3000Z,so it should be the same. I don't have my camera or manual here at work with me today, but, there IS a setting that you enable in the menus that basically tell the camera NOT to reset all your settings back to defaul when you turn the camera off. Then, the settings you change will be "permanent" when you turn the camera off. I do the same thing with my camera.

Not sure this is enough, but here they come:
Delete settings:
Choose the wrench tab (top of the menu page) then choose delete settings. then press the (set) button.
Delete camera settings:
In the same menu tab, you also find delete the camera settings.
There press the (set) button. This will change everything you ever changed in the camera, back to the initial settings. I could not find e general reset.

My pictures are only 72 DPI. How can I change the resolution to higher quality?

The dots per inch setting (DPI) is meaningful only when printing the picture. As such, the camera simply fills in a default value of 72. You can change it in Photoshop or any other photo editing program. The resolution setting on the camera only changes the number of pixels in the picture, not how you print it.

I have sony DSC-W190,i want correct menu setting ,bcos if i take a picture its not clear,i think may be menu setting changed,idnt any idea about menu setting pls help.....


If the Menu settings in the camera is changed, then I suggest you to reset the Camera back to factory default. Initializing the Camera back to factory default will set all the settings in the Camera back to factory default.
To initialize the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.
You can also try a manual reset;

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

The blurry image capturing can also adjusted by changing the ISO Settings or the Scene Selection modes.

Thanks for using FixYa!

I can not change the flash setting on my camera

I'm sorry that the flash on the Camera is not working. If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:
  • When shooting MPEG movies
  • When shooting in the Twilight or Handheld Twilight mode
  • If shooting with the Burst or Multi Burst mode
  • Shooting with Sweep Panorama
  • Shooting with the Fireworks or High Sensitivity mode.
  • If an external flash is connected
Please make sure that the Camera is not in any of the above modes.
Try initializing the Camera. To initialize the Camera, please use the Initialize option under Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera.

Bought a Nikon P100 to replace a basic point and shoot dital camera. With children in sports, a shot from the stands is hard to 'get.' Now, all I get is blurry messes, unless it's in auto mode. Even the...

This camera is a bridge between the Point & Shoot (P&S) types and a "full blown" dSLR camera. It is very complex when compared the P&S type.

There are many areas of the manual the discuss the focus procedure, but you might want to simply perform a "RESET ALL" on the camera. This will return all the settings to their DEFAULT factory settings, thereby clearing any custom setting that could be responsible for the problem you are having. The instructions on how to do this and the settings defaults are shown on pages 171 through 173 of the manual. You will probably want to review them quickly before initiating the process.

After the reset, try taking some pictures to verify the focus works again. Next, feel free to change any setting from the default to one of your liking. Be sure to take a picture after EACH setting change to make sure you don't find yourself in the same situation again.

I hope this helps. Please rate my reply - thanks!

Camera only takes one or two pictures then message tells me to change batteries. Batteries are new and camera turns off.

After surveying the web, I see that this problem has been around for at around 3 years. I use fully charged NiMh batteries and get the “change batteries” message after only a few shots or immediately.
In my case, changing to alkaline 1.5V batteries solves the problem (versus ~1.3V for NiMh or other rechargeables.) Cleaning the contacts (stainless steel) makes no difference.
Interestingly, I can operate the camera in the playback mode and view pictures and movies with no problem. This involves driving the display on the camera back, probably the most power hungry part of the instrument. This suggests the problem is record mode specific.
My guess is that there is a voltage reference problem. References can drift over time, and depending on the initial value, cause problems any time during a camera's life. The reference isn't necessarily needed in playback but is critical for recording should the image sensor voltage be too low.
