DSC-S75 - LCD shows better than actual pictures

Lately we've been noticing that there's some real differences between what we see on the LCD and what it looks like when we load it onto the computer. The picture on the LCD will look bright enough and sharp, no blurriness. We open the picture on the computer and it will be too dark or will be blurry. Doesn't happen all the time but is happening more and more. Have no idea what is causing this all of a sudden. We're just plain old amateurs, taking family photos. I don't mess too much with the settings. Any ideas? Sheryl

Re: DSC-S75 - LCD shows better than actual pictures

One thing i noticed with the s75 was a tendency for it to have trouble on overcast days, especially in snowy conditions. color balance was always very blue. if your images look blurry on the monitor and not on the LCD, it's probably a simple matter of too slow shutter speed. the LCD is just not large enough to see that level of detail. so in marginal like situations, you need to learn to hold the camera steadier. hold it firmly, not white knuckled, take a deep breath, exhale and smoothly press the shutter as you do. this is a tough thing to learn, but once you master it you can have a very high hit rate because you've eliminated camera shake. have you ever tried to calibrate your monitor? a crude way to look into the darkness issue, is to look at a test image on the LCD, copy to the computer (leave the image on the card) and print the test image. compare all 3. if the image as printed looks more like the LCD than the computer, adjust monitor brightness to level things out. also, if you view images here or at pbase of photosig, you might notice highly rated images that you think look terrible. this can be a possible way to get a feel for how bright you have your monitor calibrated. as mentioned, viewing your images on another computer can be good too, but if nothing has ever been done to adjust from how a computer came out of the box, it may be misleading. monitor calibration is pretty tough without the proper measuring tools because our eyes tend to compensate for minor brightness and color balance errors.

Sheryl, have you tried loading a photo on an alternate PC? If there is a difference you will then know that it has to do with your PC's monitor calibration. Good luck!

Re: DSC-S75 - LCD shows better than actual pictures

Could be a monitor miscalibration. Sometimes, pictures will be different than what it appears LCD monitor brightness cud be high and PC monitor brightness might be low... Did u try printing some of the dark pictures? if printed photos are different, then its defintely a calibration issue.

My pictures have a blue tint...I have a DSC-S75


If you took the pictures in fluorescent lighting they will have a blue cast. To correct that, you need to set the white balance option in your camera. Pictures of a snow landscape and others will also have a blue cast at times, unless you set the white balance correctly. There are many places online that discuss these settings for phtography in general.

My Sony DSC-S75 camera shows a format error when I insert my 128MB memory stick also blinking is C:13:01. Any idea's how to fix? Thanks!


Format error display shows memory card is unstable and need to be format through format option in Camera menu.
Format memory card, if that does not fix the issue, try another memory card in camera and check this memory card in another camera just to make sure either camera got problem or memory card is bad.

Dsc-s75 capacity


The 85 and 717 were the first cams able to use a contigous 256Mb Pro stick as far as I know, the 707 and 75 are stuck with the originals or the Switchable ones which defeat the object as if you've gotta pull it to switch "halves" you may as well take 2 normal and cheaper sticks along..

DSC-S75 focusing problems...


Without seeing a photo, here are a few possibilities. 1) Shutter speed too low (camera shake). 2) Camera is focusing on something in the foreground. 3) Focus not locked, low light, low contrast scene. Items 2 and 3 can be corrected by manual focus. Set the focus to 1 click below infinity, depth of field will insure everything is in focus. For item 1 remember that the shutter speed must be 1/125 sec or faster at full zoom to avoid camera shake.

Can the DSC-S75 shoot in B & W?


Scenes modes are for when you aren't sure about the settings yourself and just want the camera to try to figure it out. They can work pretty well, but they are more for the point-n-shooter. With the manual capabilities, those are where I'd focus my attention. Still, the scenes modes are adequate for the types of situations that most people will need: • Twilight (low light shots, long exposures) • Landscape (focus locked to infinity, small apertures, flash cancel) • Portrait (large apertures) Beyond that, and you're likely to use either Auto or the Full Manual Mode. Of course, you can shoot in B & W. This is a very basic function for most digicams, and a walk in the park for advanced cameras like the S75. I'd also bet that a S75 B&W shot with the Sharpness turned down to -2 would make for a very interesting and moody shot. You can add a zoom lense. In my opinion, the best tele lens for the advanced-class Cyber-shot family members (S75, S70, and F505V) is the Olympus B-300. You'll have to do a search of your own to find it. It's rare now, because it seems everyone has sort of "discovered" its capabilities --- Sony users, Canon users, Olympus users. Get one if you can.
