Question about Fuji FinePix S2 Pro Digital Camera

2 Answers

Unsharp Images When enlarging any file fromn the Fuji S2pro, I am not getting sharp prints. Whether I shoot raw or fine jpeg, when blown up to 16x20 they are soft. Unsharp mask must be used to make it saleable, but I am still not happy with the quality.

Re: Unsharp Images

Remember, always shoot in 12 meg raw. Never sharpen in camera. No problem. Now try USM at 100%, 4, and 2.1 to 2.6 pixels for a good, sharp 16 x 20. Remember, unsharp pictures are usually NOT caused by the camera. 1- poor technique 2- poor lens 3- too slow a shutter speed 4- camera movement 5- out of focus. Number 1 is camera movement. Number 2 is a cheap lens being shot wide open. The PROS love the S2 quality! Please don't feel offended. Making sharp 16 x 20s is a very difficult skill to master. You have the right camera. Not sure about your lens.

Re: Unsharp Images

My boss has the S-2. THis is the second one she has had. The first one would not give us a sharp image no matter what we did. We returned that body and got a new one.This one is better but to match the S-1 that I had at the time she had to turn the in camera sharpness on to high.I had the S-1 set to normal. I would check out what the in camera sharpness is set to. Is the camera new? Or is this a new problem. Fuji has good tech support you might want to give them a call. Best of luck

I am shooting in raw i cant download pictures properly or get my pictures printed off the the card


RAW images are what it means. You should convert them into a printable format such as JPEG before you can take prints. I strongly suggest that you shoot in JPEG mode to avoid all these headaches!

A list and defintion of the file types raw b, raw, fine, norm and basic


The D3000 can store still images in two different formats. JPEG is a standard format, recognized by just about every image viewer and image manipulation program in the world. RAW is actually NEF (Nikon Electronic Format), a Nikon-proprietary format which incorporates almost all of the data captured by the sensor, without the processing of JPEG. JPEG files have the color balance, sharpening, contrast, and all the other camera settings done on the picture. With RAW files, you can change any or all of them and produce new JPEGs. In this respect the RAW file is similar to the original negative you get from processed film, while the JPEG file is like the final print. RAW files need special software for viewing and editing.

All JPEG files are compressed to save space. FINE, NORM, and BASIC represent different levels of compression. FINE does the least compression and takes up the most space, BASIC does the most compression and takes up the least space. Compression always loses some quality, so in general the less the compression the better the quality.

RAW+B simply stores each of your pictures as a RAW file and a BASIC JPEG file.

Having said all that, you should use only RAW or FINE settings. You didn't buy a SLR only to throw away picture quality, did you?

When I shoot in Raw + jpeg, no raw filkes show up.


I had the same problem, basically all you need is a RAW converter, the canon software should do and should be provided with the camera and if you havent got that then there is a wide selection of free software on the internet im sure of it just search for it, or a lot easier not to use RAW in the first place...

I have been given a Coolpix P6000 which I am still experimenting with. My latest pictures contain some images which have an NRW extension instead of JPEG and these pictures cannot be printed. How can I...


NRAW is a RAW image file taken directly from the the sensor & is not processed by the camera. RAW files can be edited in photo editing software. If you want camera to record JPEG files change your [IMAGE QUALITY] setting to [FINE], {NORMAL] or [BASIC].
or to record image in both formats as RAW & JPEG use [NRAW+FINE] etc.
Hope this helps you ;)

Raw file quality not as good as jpeg


RAW quality will always be at least as good as JPEG quality. The reason your JPEGs are coming out sharper is that the camera is actually doing post-processing on the RAW data, performing sharpening, white balance, contrast and brightness adjustment, etc., before saving the JPEG. The RAW data, as the name implies, is taken straight from the sensor, without the sharpening and other post-processing applied to it.

Features of each record mode


The details for each record mode are as follows: RAW: RAW data is unprocessed image data in its original state to which white balance, sharpness, contrast, color conversion and other processes have not been applied. CAMEDIA Master can be used to display RAW data and save it in other image formats. A RAW plug-in is also available for Adobe Photoshop which also provides the ability to process images in 32-bit color depth. TIFF: This is the highest-quality mode. images are saved as uncompressed data, which is the best for printing or image processing on a computer. SHQ: This is a high quality mode using the JPEG format. Because the compression rate is very low, high quality images can be stored. HQ: This is a high quality mode using JPEG format, with medium compression. Because the compression rate is higher than SHQ, file sizes are smaller. More images can be saved to a card. The file size can be changed in the 3:2 or Enlarge size mode as well as SHQ. 3:2 Mode: Ordinarily the image aspect ratio is set to 4:3. Due to change the ratio to 3:2, the picture size becomes 2592 x 1728 so that the image can be printed without losing the image borders at a photo lab. 3:2 can be set in the TIFF, SHQ, or HQ mode. SQ1/SQ2: SQ1 is used for resolutions above 1600 x1200 and SQ2 is used for resolutions below 1600 x1200. For both, you can choose high compression to reduce noise or normal compression to save more images.
