I heard of problems with the focus on this model when in landscape mode. It's being related to a firmware problem. Are you shooting in landscape mode perhaps? In any case, this model is not very famous for taking sharp pictures, ans as far as I know got discontinued pretty fast. Kodak also won't repair it, just offer you a replacement. I also heard that the camera gets focus problems from opening up while in the case - a design flaw makes the power button easy to press while its closed in a case, after a while it damages the lens. This is the only problem that I heard Kodak are willing to fix out of warranty, if you press them hard enough. Hope you find a solution, good luck ;]

    its 1.03, so I'm guessing its some sort of an update. Worth a try

Poor picture quality have tried resetting factory settings also have taken photo of picture so you can see what I mean but don't know how to send this to you.

Poor picture quality can mean different things - could you be a little more specific, please ? For example is it over or under exposed ? Out of focus ? Suffering from camera shake or subject movement ? Electronic noise degrading the image definition ?

My pictures are all coming out white! It looks like they're incredibly over exposed. Help.

Possible that the CCD has failed on the camera. You can remove battery and keep aside and check few hours later. if the display shows as well as the downloaded images seems hazy and of poor quality it is possible that the optical sensor has failed.
If you had exposed the camera to direct sunlight this is a possibility.
Get estimate.

Non crispy display

Six to seven years is about the usual life of a picture tube, and then you start seeing signs of aging. Poor focus is one common symptom (the loss of crispness you noticed). There is an internal focus adjustment, but it usually can't compensate for the tube. If you want to try it, the control is on a part called the flyback transformer. It's usually found on a rear corner of the circuit board, and has a red wire going to a rubber contact cap on the picture tube. Most flybacks have two little knobs on them, and you want to tweak the one marked "FOCUS" a little to see if improves the picture. BE VERY CAREFUL! WITH THE POWER ON THERE ARE POSSIBLY LETHAL VOLTAGES EXPOSED!

If the focus adjustment doesn't help enough, it's time to look for a sale on an LCD monitor. The prices have come way down, and eBay is a great place to look for deals if you don't want to buy new.

Poor quality video transmission on new webcams

The camera lens can be focused by turing the lens from Left to Right. Sounds like this may be the problem. Hope this helps. Bud

Poor Resolution

e sure the quality setting is the highest - 7 megapixels. Otherwise, why buy a 7MP if you shoot at 3MP. The Canon 750 seems to have excellent picture quality where the Olympus has soft focusing (reviews at C-net).

Fuzzy/ not very sharp pictures

If the photos look pixellated, perhaps you've turned down the resolution/quality setting? Check the manual for how to correct this.

If your photos seem generally hazy, your lens could need cleaning. Use a lint free cloth such as one for cleaning spectacles.

If all your photos have a smooth, out of focus appearance, it could be a camera fault. However, if you've recently been taking photos in poor light without flash, it could also be "camera shake". You can distinguish this from out of focus because the blur is slightly directional rather than being smooth in all directions. Points of light become lines not blurry discs.

Good book for a beginner?

have you set it to macro mode? (little flower icon on the right cursor) this function will allow you to get within about 2cm of the subject, however do not use the zoom as the lens cannot focus close enough. To get results any closer you will be looking at an slr and a budget on a few thousand! If enabling macro and not using zoom to allow the lens to focus doesn't get you close enough in you can always enlarge and crop images. have a look on www.picture-skew.blogspot.com i've taken some macros of flowers and bugs, this camera can capture the hairs on an ants back or the individual lenses of a flys compound lens eye.

persevere with this camera, for a very small budget you will get amazing results, ISO refers to the speed of 'film', it comes from the dark old ages of 35mm film cameras. Basically a low ISO is the lowest sensitivity to light and gives the best image quality, however as the ccd is less responsive to the light the camera holds the shutter open for longer. The higher the ISO the more sensitive the ccd but the greater the noise and lower the quality of picture.

Books, try looking for more photography orientated books and less digital camera based books. An upto date photography book will tell you all the technical information about how to take a good picture for any given senario.

if you would like any further advice email me (address on the blogspot)
