Question about Kodak DCS 14n Digital Camera

2 Answers

Resolution Problem I just purchased a 14n and perhaps I'm doing something wrong but I set the resolution to 13.5mb and my files are coming up 6mb or even less. Also the color and sharpness seem to be off. I have been using a Fuji S1 with great results but wanted to move up to the 14n for it's high resolution capabilties but I don't seem to be getting it. Any help would be most appreciated.

Re: Resolution Problem

To get the full resolution the 14N offers, you have to shoot raw files. The camera will shoot raw at several resolutions, as well as J-Pegs, see your owner's manual. The 14N will not shoot in-camera to a tiff. Once you turn the raw file into a tiff using Photo Desk you will have a 38 meg tiff at full resolution, which yields a 10"x15" image at 300 dpi Be sure to go to Kodak's website and download and install the new firmware v. 4.4 and the new Photo Desk v.3.2 as well as the new Camera Manager v. 3.1. The new 4.4 firmware offers much less noise in long exposures and higher ISOs. The improvements are so good, you'll think you have a new camera. 4.4 also offers a "Longer" exposure mode for up to 30 sec exposure times and a mirror pre-release option for long exposures. To open files made with the new 4.4 firmware, you will need Photo desk 3.2, so download both. Photo Desk 3.2 is much better than 3.1 with more film "looks" and histogram/curves adjustments, color correction sliders in addition to color temperature. The new Photo Desk is now as good as Capture Studio which ships with the much more expensive Pro Back Plus. Do these upgrades in software and firmware and and you will be amazed by the quality the 14N has to offer. It's easily as good as 6x7 film.

Re: Resolution Problem

If you are shooting with it on Jpeg that is about the correct size for you file. Even on Jpeg it should look way better then the S1 if not someting is wrong for sure. what are you exact settings.

Why low resolution?


Uploading them via the SD card will have no effect on the resolution.
There is a difference between image grain and image pixelation.
If the resolution is too low for the size you are printing the image will pixelated, meaning that it will be made up of lots of little squares.
If the image is grainy it may be that you are shooting images in low light at a high ISO setting on the camera. Typically with the lower end Canon cameras anything above 800ISO will start to look grainy.

I have a 2gb memory card and I can only take 33 pictures before it says memory full! I have tried everything


A couple of things could be wrong. The first thing to check is that you don't have other data on the card. Digital cameras create a file folder when you format the card, and there could be other files outside of that directory taking up space.

You should remove any important pictures from the card and then format the card from the menu in your camera. In fact, it is good practice to format the card every time you use it to make certain the card is still good and that there are no bad spots in the memory. Formatting will delete any old data and prepare a fresh directory for your camera.

Formatting will likely solve your problem. The only other things to consider are the picture resolution selection in your menu (larger resolution equals larger files) and perhaps that sections of your memory card went bad and are no longer accessible by the camera. Trying another card would prove that.

In uploading to a website, so that pictures could be printed, a comment states low resolution and the pictures may be blurry when printed. Is there any setting on the camera that I can change that would...


I dont know what resolution your camera is, but make sure you have it set at the highest it can go. The higher the resolution the better quality the picture. I had a 12mp camera but you could set it as low as 4mp which is ok for snaps but if you are uploading or printing then you need to set your camera to a higher resolution if you can. Read your instruction book it should tell you how to configure your settings there. If it is an old camera that cant be changed then maybe its time to invest in a higher mp camera perhaps 8mp 10mp or even 12mp

Yes , I would like to know why my photo's are coming out grainy ? pentax 8.0 meg. 7x optical zoom.digital


Two possibilities related to the amount of light reaching your camera sensor.

The sensitivity ISO is set too low, perhaps 200... set it higher, like 800 or 1600 ISO

[Sensitivity]


Your "resolution" may be set too low, maybe 3 Megapixels. Set the resolution to at least 6 megapixels.

Enlarging file size of pictures


That camera shoots at 7.2Megapixels at max resolution, that should print an 8.5x11 without any issue.

Check the settings on the camera to make sure that you've got it set to take "high" resolution, and not "low".

In the settings, there should be a resolution option that you can change. It's likely set to take lower resolution that what the camera can actually handle.

Lack of mb in photos


If you have your camera set to take the highest resolution pictures(8 MegaPixel), but save in jpg format, then 3 - 4 MB is a normal size for the image file. There is nothing wrong with your camera.

If you have your camera set to save in RAW format, the image files will not be compressed and MUCH bigger. However you will need software that will be able to manipulate images in RAW format.

Pixel problem, all pictures taken have poor pixel resolution


It sounds like you set the file settings to a small file size - perhaps in order to get more photos on a single memory card. You need to change the setting to the largest file size possible, at the highest quality. The steps for this will be in your manual. If you need detailed instructions and don't have your manual, let me know and I'll lookup your manual online.

Poor printing resolution...?!


You can select whatever resolution you want to print at on your Print(er) Setup.

If your Printer is automatically selecting a 72DPI to print at, you may be trying to print a 10X12 pic size or larger by default due to pic file size created when pic was taken in camera with full 7Meg resolution.

Use photo software to proper size the print before printing. If you want a print larger than 5X7, keep in mind the TZ3 begins to have recognizable noise, reduced resolution due to noise, especially in low light indoor or evening/nite outside shots. You can use photo software to improve and size them before printing. Windows Vista has a built-in photoshop type program. Else, I believe your camera comes with one on disk.

Also, read your manual regarding shooting with this camera.
