Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S70 Digital Camera

1 Answer

S70 Sharpness The Sony S-70 defaults to "0" under SHARPNESS. Does anyone know what this scale corresponds to? Is "0" no software enhancement? Is "-2" no enhancement? If "0" is no enhancement, then what would, -1 and -2 mean? And why would you ever want to "unsharpen" a photo? -- Thanks, Frank Gruger

Re: S70 Sharpness

If S70 is like 505V for the issue, -2 appears to be the "no enhancement". I have no idea why they don't start from 1 to 5.

I have a new SP-800UZ that will not focus sharply on distant objects using the 30 X zoom. Do you know how i can get rid of the problem or get rid of the camera. I have tried all settings but mostly on P...

Look within the settings within the camera's setup menu (I am not too clued-up with this model but I'll try) Look for things like sharpness, photo effects, ISO modes and resolution. make sure the sharpness is set toward the sharper end of the scale, that there no added effects enabled and that the ISO mode (if not in auto) is set between 100 and 600.
Also, if you are using digital zoom you will reduce picture quality.
Finally, using maximum zoom requires a very steady hand (or a tripod) as the slightest shake or twitch will be amplified many times at the target - end of the shot.
Good luck Bill, hope this helped a bit.

Is there any way I can clear up a blurry picture on this camera once the pic is already taken?

On TV shows, they can take a blurry picture and enhance it to crystal clarity. In real life, however, those kinds of miracles aren't possible. In a photo editing program like Photoshop Elements, you can bring up the sharpness a little but you eventually reach a point where the picture no longer looks like a normal picture. The slogan is "garbage in...garbage out"...meaning you can only do so much to what you have to work with.

I have read a lot about chromatic abberation and softness at edges of Sigma 70-200 F2.8 lens, what is your experience. The exact lens model is "Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG Macro HSM II" Galway canon fan.

All zoom lenses have softness at the edges and all have certain apertures that are the best for sharpness. You have to experiment to find the ones for your lens. Chromatic abberation is something you would have to use a magnifying glass on your computer screen to see. Don't worry about it.

W1 Sharpening

I think I read somewhere that pictures came out too soft and therefore sharpness should be set to +. You need to use an image viewing application that can show the photo's EXIF data.

Grainy Pictures

With the iso set on auto mode it will change depending on the light and anything above iso 200 is very bad on this camera i know have the 717 and it does a lot better but if you can set the iso yourself and take it off auto allways use 100 or 200 for low grain.

RAW quality mode option

In the RAW mode, the image is compiled of raw data with no compression and no enhancing settings from the camera such as sharpness, contrast etc. It provides a higher dynamic range with the maximum image quality without being processed, so the user can apply his/her own changes to the file. The file will have a .ORF (Olympus Raw File) extension. It can be read using a supplied PhotoShop Plug-in or the Olympus Camedia 2.5 program.
