Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Grainy picture quality Olympus FE-230

When our Olympus FE-230 was new the photo quality was great - very crisp, clear, sharp photos. Now they're awful - I've tried changing resolution and it makes no difference. They also seem to be dark but I'm more concerned with the fact that I can't use any of the pictures I take - they are out of focus. Please help!! THanks!

    Same as previous. Have a FE-230 , was crisp clear, now ALL pics are blurry, checked all settings , it just seems not to focus, when I hold down the shutter button half way to focus, it will try to focus but the LCD is blurry and the pic comes out blurry in every category of picture taking , I think I have default all settings.

    Can the camera just go bad? It is only 2 yrs old and handled with care.

Check to see if your image stabilization is on (shaky hand). turn this feature off. also check the properties of your image to see if the iso is set to automatic. high iso, such as 800, will cause this in cameras

Does the Olympus FE-230 date stamp the photo when dowloaded to PC? If so, please advise how. I have downloaded some photos and date and time are not stamped on photo. but on the camera it shows date and...


The camera stores the date and time (and a lot more) with every image in what's called the EXIF data. Any competent photo viewer on your computer should be able to show you some or all of this data. If you want the date printed, that's up to your printing program. Depending on the program (and printer), you can have the date printed on the image, in the margin, or on the back. Please refer to the documentation for the program.

I have changed the settings somehow on my camera and don't know how to get it back to it's original setting, the quality of my photo's seem quite ***** like and very bright.. anyone know how to change it...


Hi,

Press the MENU button to bring up the Record mode Menu. You can use this shortcut menu to quickly change image resolution, reset all settings to factor defaults, enter Panorama mode, enable Picture+Sounds, enable Silent mode, change the scene mode (when set to the SCN position on the mode dial) as well as enter the Setup menu.

Hope this helps.

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).

Printer issues


If you are using Glossy paper, when you go to print make sure to go into the printer Properties from the Print dialog box and select Glossy paper in the type. This will put the printer into it's highest print quality mode.

So from most windows applications, it would be :-
CTRL-P (to print with dialog box for changes)
Click on Properties
Select a Media type of glossy photo paper
Select standard or high print quality.

p.s. you may need to experiment which if the media types gives you best quality for the paper your using, unless it's Canon paper and then just match it up.
