I need a web cam software with better megapixel. From which site can i download?


Sorry to disappoint, but you can't download more pixels. The amount of pixels a camera (or actually the sensor) has, is a physically fixed number. So the only way to increase your pixel count, is to get a camera with more pixels (higher resolution).

Distorted/damaged pictures


Please check the image size (pixels x pixels) setting or the resolution (MP). Seems like the camera is shooting in low resolution. Have you used this memory card on a mobile phone or another camera? Format the memory card and try again.

Optoma EP716 Projector


Hi,

Make sure that the resolution shown by the projector matches with that of the computer resolution. Many projectors does it automatically.
But if there exists a problem in resolution matching, there is a chance of getting partial picture. So better check that the resolution shown by the projector matches with that of the computer.

Also, the pixel may be degraded due to,
  • Their susceptibility to heat; the organic compounds used in LCD filters - in particular the blue - can be broken down by excess heat, resulting in a degradation of image quality.

  • "Dead Pixels"; pixels can become permanently on or permanently off, and while this is barely noticeable with one dead pixel, the presence of multiple dead pixels can be a irritation.
The only way to fix the problem is to replace the 3 LCD panels which, if you could get the part would cost you more than a new one.
LCDs are really difficult to make so lots of them do actually get passed with dead pixels on them.

But i suggest you to get some advice from the service center too.....
Hope my info solves your problem.
Thanx for using fixya.

How do I increase the dpi on TZ5


Hi - When talking about resolution in digital photography there are two main meanings.
One is the "pixel count resolution" and the other "embedded resolution". So for example your camera could record 2272*1704 as the actual pixel count resolution and set 72 as the embedded resolution that tells other software (for example photoshop) what the intended use of the picture will be. 72 ppi is the default for web pictures. You can change this in photoshop by going to the "Image" tab & select image size. The window that opens will show you the pixel dimensions i.e. pixel count resolution and the document size & resolution 72. You just change it in your software to 300 for printing. In Photoshop you can change the default to 300 by going "edit", "preferences", "units & rulers" and setting the values for "new document preset resolutions".

So for your camera the embedded resolution is 180 which you can only change in your PC software.

This is a complex subject, I recommend looking at the following web page:

Picture Resolution?


Picture resolution is the total number of pixels in your picture (those little colored dots when you look really really close). It's expressed in megapixels and is simply the product of the number of pixels in the width of the picture times the number of pixels in the length. For example, a 7.1 MP camera takes images with a resolution of 3072 pixels width by 2304 pixels height ( 7.1MP = 3072 x 2304).

Pixels/inch refers to the resolution of your picture on some external viewing device (printer, computer monitor, etc...). It has nothing to do with the settings on your camera. It's equal to the number of pixels in the picture divided by the width of the displayed picture on the device. For example, an 8 x 10" printed picture has a width of 10 inches. If I wanted to take full advantage of my 7.1 MP picture by printing it as an 8x10, then I should look for a printer capable of printing 707,789 pixels/inch. Now I'm pretty sure there's no printer currently capable of this feat.

The example above shows that the rush for more megapixels is not necessarily where consumers or camera manufacturers should be focusing their attention. Most people really only need something around the 3MP range for printouts or display on their monitor screens.

Canon Rebel xti vs Photoshop!


What you are seeing is the difference between "pixel count resolution" and "embedded resolution". So in your example 2272*1704 is the actual pixel count resolution as recorded by the camera & 72 is the embedded resolution that tells the software (in this case photoshop) what the intended use of the picture will be. 72 ppi is the default for web pictures. You can change this in photoshop by going to the "Image" tab & select image size. The window that opens will show you the pixel dimensions i.e. pixel count resolution and the document size & resolution 72. You just change it to 300 for printing. You can change the default to 300 by going "edit", "preferences", "units & rulers" and setting the values for "new document preset resolutions".

PC web cam not funcitoning properly


Well, that could be because of the cam itself. It is a cheap cam. If you want better quality you will have to buy a little more expensive cam with atleast 1 MegaPixels resolution. The one you currently have has about 600 000 Pixels. Simply put, you will have to buy a cam with higher resolution for better quality.

What are high resolution and standard resolution?


All pictures have 24-bit pixel depth, or 16 million colors at 144 dots per inch. The high resolution setting produces a standard size photo, 4.44" x 3.33" at 640 x 480 pixels. A wallet size photo of 2.22" x 1.67" at 320 x 240 pixels is produced using the standard resolution setting. Example: A picture with dimensions of 4.44" x 3.33" at a pixel count of 640 x 480 will have the same dpi as the same picture at a 320 x 240 pixel count with dimensions of 2.22" x 1.67" (dpi=144 x 144 or 20736 pixels per square inch). The larger picture will have a much higher resolution due to the fact that four times the pixels will define the same section of the picture in the larger photograph.
