Question about Olympus Camedia D-550 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

High Flash Resolution

Everytime I take a picture with my D-550 I get photos with a very bright resolution. Especially outdoor photos.....it's almost as if the shutter is staying open too long. When I take picture outside, the photo looks like a flash of light. I even have my flash turned off. Pictures in a low light setting are fine. Any ideas?

Re: High Flash Resolution

You are shooting with the exposure bias set too far on the plus side, not familiar with the 550, do You have the user manual? If You look at exif data of posted photos, You will see that many are taken at settings below the midpoint. If You don't have a manual, go to the Olympus website, many manuals are available for download. You may also find the function in the menu based on sunny, cloudy, etc, this is important to set right

Blurry enlargements


I suggest altering the settings a little and if that doesn't work try using a different software to enlarge images. Such as windows photo gallery. That's not too good for enlarging just good for keeping the quality up if that isn't good enough try using a free trial of photo shop.
Hope I helped Dr Red

The batteries do not last more that one photo session. This has been so since new. Why is this and can this be improved on?


Multiple possibilities exist.
How long and how many pictures do you consider as a photo session?
What size picture are you taking? High res or low res.
Are you using the flash?
Are you using picture instant preview?
Are you using auto-focus?
These will ALL use power and help to drain the battery. The 3 largest users are the preview, flash and resolution settings.

How can I take high resolution photos on my Panasonic Lumix DMC FS15. I sent some photos to Costco to have them made into posters and was told that I needed a higher resolution photo to make a good clear...


All cameras have multiple settings for picture quality. For example if you email a lot of pictures select a lower resolution. If you have "poster" size prints made select the highest resolution you camera will do.
Go into your cameras set up and select the highest resolution you have. should be about 12MP.
You have a high quality print with that.

The 1GB disk, only takesabout 22 pictures beforeit says the memory is full


Check the setting where the pictures are being stored. It may be still storing to the internal memory.

Also check what resolution you are capturing your snaps. Although 22 pictures should not fill your memory but high resolution photos can take 5-6 MB /photo, so you can accomodate about 180-200 photos in 1GB. Try reducing the photo resolution, if you are not planning to print them.

Also, have you downloaded all the previous snaps from the card and deleted it from the 1GB card?

Photo,s are too big for sending by e-mail


You can set the resolution on the camera for lower resolution. You may not want to do this if you are planning to print the photos on a printer especially if you want larger prints. The best solution is to download the pictures in the cameras resolution and then reduce the resolution using a graphics program such as photoshop to a web format resolution.
There are shareware programs that can also reduce the resolutiion once loaded onto your PC.

Too bright pictures


Try doing a test of the same image using different "modes" and compare the results - it may just be that you've got the wrong setting.

Resolution


look in the setup screen. Its accessible through the blue F button on the back. Easy cheesy. If shutterfly is getting smaller resolution pics than you are shooting, then your Email client is automatically resizing your pictures to speed up the transfer, you need to turn that feature off.

What are high resolution and standard resolution?


All pictures have 24-bit pixel depth, or 16 million colors at 144 dots per inch. The high resolution setting produces a standard size photo, 4.44" x 3.33" at 640 x 480 pixels. A wallet size photo of 2.22" x 1.67" at 320 x 240 pixels is produced using the standard resolution setting. Example: A picture with dimensions of 4.44" x 3.33" at a pixel count of 640 x 480 will have the same dpi as the same picture at a 320 x 240 pixel count with dimensions of 2.22" x 1.67" (dpi=144 x 144 or 20736 pixels per square inch). The larger picture will have a much higher resolution due to the fact that four times the pixels will define the same section of the picture in the larger photograph.

How can I store more pictures in the camera?


The standard 2MB internal flash memory stores either 60 standard resolution images or 30 high resolution images. EPSON Accessories offers the PhotoSpan 2MB memory module (A882401) which increases picture storage to 65 high resolution or 130 standard resolution images. The PhotoSpan 4MB memory module (A882411) makes it possible to take 100 high resolution or 200 standard resolution images.
