Question about Olympus D-340R Digital Camera

1 Answer

Photos are so soft

I purchased the Olympus D340R last week and I was so thrilled, this is my first digital camera.But when I received my flashpath adapter and downloaded my pictures I was very disapointed,all my photos are so soft,not at all like the sample photos I viewed at various sites on the web.I've read the owners manual thoroughly and have done some sharpening in photo deluxe,Ive also tried a tripod.But nothing has worked also the colors are dull.Could this camera be a lemon,should I take it back or am I doing something wrong.

My best advice to you, assuming you haven't got a real problem with the focusing mechanisms in your cameras, is to downsize your images by half in each dimension (e.g., 1280 x 1024 -> 640 x 512) for viewing. At that resolution the images should look as sharp and crisp as any you've seen. Remember that sample photos you find on the net are usually the cream of the crop, and what most people publish has been processed in their digital darkrooms.

How to copy panorama feature?


The panorama feature cannot be copied, it is 'firmware' of sorts that is integrated into the card itself. Olympus does offer several types of 'special' firmware in their branded SmartMedia cards (I believe there was a special one for printing T-Shirts and Mugs and the like....don't recall exactly, but did have a special supplement when I bought my C-1400XL).
