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.

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.

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.

Increase resolution


The poster resolution and the computer resolution are completely separate. The cpt resolution controls the monitor screen display. The poster resolution refers to the camera pixels used in recording the original picture - it cannot be increased. The poster program is measuring the resolution of the file picture only and indicating that t will produce a blurry poster.

Text being scanned does not produce a clear print to our cannon ip18oo printer


alot of the time if you scan something it will streach the image because of the scanner resolution. check you setting on the printer. you might need to change the settings to stop it from doing that to make he image more clear. if that doesn't work than also some printers are just like that when you scan something. it will also make one page turn into two pages. that may just be the way the printer is.

ASUS computer not identifying AOC monitor correctly, cannot set native resolution.


Ok. I looked at the AOC site that you went to for the drivers. The drivers come in a ZIP package. Did you extract the files from the ZIP folder or did you point the computer to the ZIP file? The computer probably wont see the files inside the ZIP unless they are extracted first. There are three files inside the folder. The .inf file should trigger the driver load.

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.

New monitor but unable to use its maximum resolution settings


no, there's nothing wrong with either your graphics card & monitor.. it just that your graphics card does not support a 1680x1050 resolution. if you want to fully enjoy the resolution of your monitor, you should upgrade your graphics card. purchase at least 256mb graphics card and you will see the difference..

Resolution of the text


What is the resolution that you are running the monitor at? There are two possible reasons that come to my mind.

1. You are running at a non native resolution. Based on your LCD spec you should run it at 1280x1024 resolution to have very sharp text as you normally expect from LCD's. However if you have set another resolution (say 1024x768) the text is blurred and this is a known issue with LCD's, which unlike a normal CRT monitor will get blurred running at any other resolution :(
2. You have not installed the monitor driver, hence again this limits your resolution and windows only allows you to select a resolution that is non-native (Meaning since the driver file is not there the operating system may not allow selecting the native resolution the monitor should run at). You can find the driver file at the samsung site. Its a common driver file for all LCDs.

The AL1916W's native resolution is 1440 x 900. See if your display settings can produce that resolution.
