Question about Olympus Camedia C-3030 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Are there any custom settings that *should* be changed initially

I am, however, not all that interested in changing and rechanging any of the camera's options. I pretty much just want to set it up at the SHQ setting initially and then always be ready to go (most of my shots are indoors, with some daytime outdoor shots). With that in mind, are there any custom settings that *should* be changed initially (I guess I'm thinking in regard to white balance, etc.) and then I can forget about it?

I have the C3000Z,so it should be the same. I don't have my camera or manual here at work with me today, but, there IS a setting that you enable in the menus that basically tell the camera NOT to reset all your settings back to defaul when you turn the camera off. Then, the settings you change will be "permanent" when you turn the camera off. I do the same thing with my camera.

I find shooting in SHQ that it still drains my battery too fast


More better quality = larger size picture = more information to write to memory. Hence, less shots...

What kind of camera? What kind of battery or batteries? What kind of storage card in camera?

Selected resolution will not save


You need to change the setting in the Menu of ALL RESET from ON to OFF so that it will retain any setting changes that you make. To do this Press Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Setup tab - right arrow to All Reset - right arrow and choose Off and then press Ok. This will retain the mode setting until you manually change it again or change all reset back to On.

Changing the DPI on my digital camera


dpi = quality. On my C-310, the quality settings are accessible by pressing the Menu/OK button, then scrolling left to an icon which can only be described as a fallen over christmas tree (other interpretations welcomed). Once there, select a lower quality and press OK. You'll probably see each quality level described both in terms of initials (SHQ presumably meaning "Super High Quality" and a resolution like "2048x1536". The lower the numbers you select, the fewer dpi and megabytes you will generate. A.

Unhappy with the quality of the pictures


Is the white dot in the viewfinder? I could see that getting very annoying so I'd probably send it back. The shots I've taken indoors with the flash on the c2100 have not had any problems with over exposure. There are both exposure and flash compensation settings in the camera, make sure you haven't changed them by accident. If this is your first digital you have to get used to the way the images look, it's not the same as film. At first digial images look "soft" and more grainy, more so if you look at them at 1:1. I usually view them so they are about 8" wide on the screen, or about 1:2. As the number of pixels goes up the difference between different compression levels becomes less noticable. If you shoot in 640x480 mode you'll see a difference between high and normal. At full resolution on some shots you'll get better color on SHQ over HQ. And TIFF is rarely any better than SHQ.

Features of each record mode


The details for each record mode are as follows: RAW: RAW data is unprocessed image data in its original state to which white balance, sharpness, contrast, color conversion and other processes have not been applied. CAMEDIA Master can be used to display RAW data and save it in other image formats. A RAW plug-in is also available for Adobe Photoshop which also provides the ability to process images in 32-bit color depth. TIFF: This is the highest-quality mode. images are saved as uncompressed data, which is the best for printing or image processing on a computer. SHQ: This is a high quality mode using the JPEG format. Because the compression rate is very low, high quality images can be stored. HQ: This is a high quality mode using JPEG format, with medium compression. Because the compression rate is higher than SHQ, file sizes are smaller. More images can be saved to a card. The file size can be changed in the 3:2 or Enlarge size mode as well as SHQ. 3:2 Mode: Ordinarily the image aspect ratio is set to 4:3. Due to change the ratio to 3:2, the picture size becomes 2592 x 1728 so that the image can be printed without losing the image borders at a photo lab. 3:2 can be set in the TIFF, SHQ, or HQ mode. SQ1/SQ2: SQ1 is used for resolutions above 1600 x1200 and SQ2 is used for resolutions below 1600 x1200. For both, you can choose high compression to reduce noise or normal compression to save more images.
