DSC-S75 - The 14 bit A/D Converter

Can anyone enlighten me as to the 14 bit A/D converter? Is that an internal bit depth or an external bit depth? In otherwords, will I get to work with all 14 bits/pixel in Photoshop, or is it just used inside the camera for processing, resulting in only the standard 8 bits/pixel available in Photoshop. Thanks for your help! I preparing to make my first digital camera purchase and want to make sure I fully understand everything first! -Sean

Re: DSC-S75 - The 14 bit A/D Converter

To explain a little further on whether the 14-bit DXP makes a difference with the S75, it was described to me this way by a knowledgable individual: "Having a good ADC (analog to digital converter) means you can represent that larger dynamic range with finer "steps" than you would with a lower quality ADC. Typically high bit ADC's are matched with CCD's with good dynamic range. Remember, those 14 bits are at the end of the day downsampled to 8 bits to generate the JPEG/TIFF. "To answer your question a 10 bit ADC should be more than capable of doing the same job, you'd probably have to look VERY closely at a fine gradient to see any difference, and certainly downsampled to 8 bits there shouldn't be any difference." Here is a Sony chart, reproduced and enlarged to illustrate what was said above. Sony claims that their 14-bit DSP is going to produce a better image, but you will really see it in gradients and in shadowed areas. The steps should be finer, if that means anything.

Re: DSC-S75 - The 14 bit A/D Converter

All of your pics are output at 8 bits/pixel, so the 14 bits are related to internal processing. For your purposes in Photoshop, this won't really matter as you'll be dealing with either a JPEG or with a TIFF image, both of which are 8 bits/pixel. What is more important and that you want to makes sure of is that your images are well exposed, well saturated, well focused, and not overly sharpened.

The manual does not tell much about inverting an image. It only says how you can get help on the camera itself when you want to convert a image. for that clic [Start] -> [All Programs] -> [Image Data Converter] -> [Help] -> [Image Data Converter Ver.4] to get help with the computer program to convert image data, go to the next link. http://www.sony.co.jp/ids-se/ I hope this is of any help.

My Sony DSC-T77 fell in the water 2 days ago. What will i do? Is there a possibility that it would still work? Pls help. Thanks


DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON! Remove the card and battery....try to dry out those compartments. Bury the camera in a bowl of uncooked rice for one week. Insert the battery and, with fingers crossed, try to turn it on. Even if it works, you may still have a problem with a haze over the lens elements when the water dried. You didn't say if the water was fresh or salt. If it was saltwater, the salt will continue to corrode the internal circuits of the camera.

FZ18 Lens Cap error message with telephoto converter


I have the same camera, and had the same problem. Make sure the camera is switched off. Then take 2 hard pieces of plastic with sharp ends. Carefully try & jam the outer ring with one, and try turning the converter with the other. I used a mini screwdriver, and left some marks on my camera. Thats why I recomend using plastic of some kind.
When you use the converter, switch off the battery saver in the camera. That way the converter won't jam again, as the camera won't switch off automatically. There is also a programme in the menu that is used for converters and external lenses. It also prevents the lens from retracting completely.
Hope I have helped you.
