I had a Sony F707 for quite a number of photos before buying an F717. I found the F717 to underexpose by about 0.3EV relative to the F707, pretty consistently, so I just set the EV compensation on the F717 to +0.3EV most of the time. The F717's color balances tend to be neutral to cool compared to the F707's very (generally overly) warm, bright colors. This is a plus: you can easily snap them up in post processing where the F707's results sometimes clipped a lot due to the oversaturation. Of course, you have to make additional adjustments based on what kind of light values and contrast range the scene you're shooting has ...

Photo resolution

Sony H1 takes photos at 72 dpi by default. But the picture quality will be good. if you want to convert it to 300dpi open the picture in adobe Photoshop and select image size and change resolution to 300 dpi. but the file size will be very high to up load. if you want to reduce the file size select the image size in adobe photoshop and reduce it according to your requirement. if my solution proves good please rate it. Regards.

DSC-W55 movie camera video display problem

Your quality setting is probably set to the E-Mail quality. This makes the video low quality and tiny.

Just press the button that you use to delete pictures with the regular screen on and change the image quality.

DSC-P52 image quality and size

I assume you bought this used, do you have a manual? You can download it from Sony directly (for free);
As far as the photo quality goes, this camera was first sold in 2003, and they have come a long way with automatic cameras in the last 5 years. If some time the photo is better than other times, thinks you should check is that the lease doesn’t have any smudges on it. You would not notice by looking at the screen if there was a finger print on the lens. Be careful about going from cool areas to warm ones this will cause the lens to fog-up
You are shooting in the highest resolution available from this camera, there is no RAW mode.
