Re: What is the camera sensitivity range of this model?

The DiMAGE Z3 sensitivity can be set to Auto, ISO 50, 100, 200, and 400. When Auto is selected, one control in the range of ISO 50-200 is assigned accordingly

How slove the problem


Introduction

Specifications Recommendations

The Nikon D60 is an inexpensive 10 MP DSLR that comes with an excellent 18-55mm VR lens for about $650 as of June 2008. It was a announced in January, 2008, and sold for about $750 with lens in February 2008.

The Nikon D60 is a replacement for the almost identical D40x.

Personally I prefer Nikon's least expensive D40 over the D60 or D40x. The D60, D40x and D40 are actually exactly the same cameras, differering only slightly in their internal electronics, but differing greatly in their prices.

The D60 is actually a D40 body with a few more card-clogging pixels, a VR lens and adaptive dynamic range, but a slower maximum shutter speed with flash.

The D60 is less sensitive to light then the D40 (its default ISO is only ISO 100 compared to the D40's default ISO of 200). Its less sensitive to light because the pixels have to be made smaller to cram more of them into the same-sized sensor. Smaller pixels collect fewer photons than larger pixels. Since the D60 is half as light sensitive, the D60 has to use twice as long a shutter speed or a larger aperture, which makes it more likely to make a blurry picture than the D40. OOPS!

Save your money and get the D40 instead. The D40's faster sync speed is invaluable for use with flash outdoors, and the extra light sensitivity in normal use will help make sharper pictures. These three cameras (D40, D40x, D60) otherwise, for most users, are identical. Compare them in person and you'll see. Megapixels don't matter.

(I detail the few fine points which are new in the D60 further below.)

I had my hands on a D60 back in January 2008. The D60 is an excellent camera, but for most of the people who will buy it, it's the same thing as the $300 less expensive D40. I'd suggest getting a D40 and putting the $300 towards more lenses and/or a bouncable flash.

In fact, the faster flash sync speed (the fastest shutter speed with flash) is more than twice as fast in the D40 (1/500 vs. 1/200), and along with the faster base ISO, the D40 is more likely to make sharper photos for most people, for hundreds of dollars less!

The only significant feature in the D60 over the D40x and D40 is adaptive dynamic range. The D60 does not have any of the other next-generation functionality of the D3 and D300.

The D60 is just a D40 with more pixels, but slower shutter speeds with flash outdoors and less basic light sensitivity due to the smaller pixels needed to jam more of them onto the same-sized sensor.

I make excellent 12 x 18" (30 x 50 cm) prints from my 6 MP D40; do you plan to print bigger? Really? The resolution makes no difference unless I'm printing at 20 x 30" (60 x 80 cm) or more.

Since the D60 costs $300 more than the D40, I'd much rather have a D40, 1/500 flash sync for better daylight fill-flash range, a minimum ISO of 200 and $300 left over to buy lenses and an external flash that I can bounce for better lighting. For instance, the D40, 55-200mm VR and SB-400 is a far better way to spend the same $750.

Hi when ever i take pictures inside they always seem to be blurred unless i use the flash


Perfectly normal. Indoors there's much less light than there is under the sun. One way to compensate for this is to use the flash. This is limited in range, and will not work well if you have two (or more) subjects at different ranges.

Another way to compensate is to leave the shutter open longer to collect more light. This causes blurring if the subject is moving. It can also lead to blurring if the camera is moving, as it inevitably will if you're holding it in your hand.

Another way is to open up the aperture, letting in more light. Some exposure modes favor this, while others do the opposite. A related method is to use a faster lens, if your camera accepts interchangeable lenses. Since you didn't bother to specify the make and model of your camera, I can't tell you what modes you may have available, or any lens choices.

Another possible way to compensate is to increase the ISO sensitivity, so that the image can be made with less light. Again, without knowing what camera you have, I can't give you much details.

How to adjust the ISO from 100


All of the AUTO ISO settings would be harder to figure out if you couldn't set an ISO range for the camera to use, but with the K20D you can:
  1. Press the Fn button
  2. Press the right directional arrow to select the ISO setting
  3. Set the ISO to AUTO
  4. Turn the front control dial to set the MINIMUM ISO the camera will use
  5. Turn the rear control dial to set the MAXIMUM ISO the camera will use
In this sense, you can set the AUTO sensitivity of the camera to range between ISO 100 and 400 or even ISO 800 to 6400 (if you so desire).
Of course, this assumes that you'll want to have this level of control over ISO, aperture and shutter speed.
If you don't have a good command of these controls and really never want to, then the K20D has a ton of modes and features that you'll simply never use.

When i capture a pic in day light than picture will come faded and when i capture in night it comes nice one my camera model is exilim ex z60


make sure the camera's settings are set to normal, since, the lens might be sensitive to daylight. You can actually change this at the settings, and, you said that it works fine at night or at dark areas? Yeah, the lens could be sensitive to bright lights! Simply adjust the sensitivity and you're all set!

Lens won't retract and now the screen flashes and then is black. Is it repairable for less than buying a new one in the $300 range?


I had a camera that got sand in the lens and it had a problem similar to this. Those lenses are sensitive and once you jam one it's pretty hard to fix. It would probably cost less for a new camera, and hey, it's always a good excuse to upgrade ;)

Image quality when manually


High or Normal settings are selectable with the DiMAGE E201 for camera sensitivity. Normal is almost equivalent to ISO 85 and high is almost equivalent to ISO 340. High is useful under dark conditions as the flash range increases (0.6 to 5m), but noise increases with sensitivity as electric signal is more amplified, which may result in coarse image. Please select the rating that best suits your purpose.

What is the range shutter speed?


The DiMAGE A2 controls shutter speed in the range of 30 sec. to 1/4000 sec. in 1/3 increments. (at bulb maximum 30 sec.) The speed, 1/4000 sec. is controlled only when the aperture is f5.6 or over in P and A mode. The highest speed in S and M mode is 1/2000 sec. The lower range depends on the set camera sensitivity. ISO800: 4 sec., ISO400: 8 sec., ISO200: 15 sec., ISO100 and ISO64: 30 sec.

What is Automatic Sensitivity Gain?


The Automatic Sensitivity Gain function amplifies the signal output from the CCD during processing. It increases the camera sensitivity and eases optimizing focus or makes the viewfinder easier to see to some extent. If the lighting conditions become darker beyond the capability of Automatic Sensitivity Gain, the Automatic Monitor Amplification is activated.
