Reducing noise for DSC-P72

I have been using DSC-P72 for 2 months. At first, I found the picture quality was OK, but recently I found that the pictures are noisy, especially for indoor usage. Does anyone has any suggestion on how to reduce noise on P72?

I have seen that in a P5 i was using in a recent trip to Boston MA. I turned the AUTO ISO to ISO 100 and everything was great. BUT be carefull for low light or night shots, you shall keep the camera still at 100 ISO.

Rendrat: I just got a P72 and am wondering what settings you are using. Are you using Auto ISO? If so, the ISO will increase to 250+ with the flash and any significant zoom. It's a pretty weak flash and increasing the ISO is the only way to get sufficient range. You will definitely notice the noise at ISO 250.

When I turn my Sony Cybershot dsc-p72 on, i am able to view my pictures, but when i try to take a picture the screen is black and it makes a whirring noise. Then the camera turns off automatically. How can...

Confirm if you're using a fully charged Battery with the Camera. Check if you're able to playback the images normally. Then, try to reset the Camera by either pressing the Reset button when the Camera is in ON condition or by removing the Battery and pressing the Power button for 1 minute and reinsert the Battery. Unfortunately, if the issue persists your Camera requires service.

You can create the service request at the following page: www.eservice.sony.com

Quality too low for 4x6 prints

A P72 should be good enough for 4x6 prints. Are you shooting at the maximum resolution? At 3.2 Megapixels you should be able to print at 4x6" at 250dpi (which although not ideal is better than that of most magazine printing!)

The graininess of your images is not to do with resolution but rather sensitivity and the processing engine in the camera. Are you shooting in bright light, or mainly with the flash? If it is the latter, I'm afraid you're always going to have the picture noise (graininess) with this camera.

If you're going to upgrade, look for a model with good low light capabilities and a good lens. www.dpreview.com is an excellent resource for comparison shopping.

Noise at High Resolution Photo on P72

I'm afraid the Sony P72 doesn't stand up too well at high ISO settings ISO 100 or 200 aren't bad but once you try ISO 400 you're guaranteed to get that blotchy noise. It's just the camera and you really can't do much about it except increase the light level or scale down the finished shot to make the noise less noticeable. Experiment with lower ISO settings and slower shutter speeds. BMW

Question about the DSC-P72

Yes, that is normal for the P72 to black out. I only know from experience of playing with it, not from a technical reason for it, but if I had to make an educated guess I would say it's because you're not getting as much power out of AA's as you do from a lithium-ion (like the one you have in your s85), therefore it takes longer, and most likely all of the power it can put out to get that flash charged; it does take a lot of power, as you probably know after about 40-50 shots you're through a set of AA's. As for the short picture review delay after shooting, also normal from what I've seen; it seems like the newer Sony cameras, especially the lower priced models have a very short review period. Of course, as was mentioned you can always just press the the left button out of the four buttons centered around the enter button in order to do a quick review. I personally don't own the P72, so if one of you P72 owners out there experiences something different, we can find out, but I think it's safe to assume your camera is acting quite normally.

DSC-P72 using Flash

Hi, While I do not have a P72, I find this problem odd. Most flash cycle times are so rapid that your grandaughter could not possible close her eyes in that time period (the travel time for the flash to fire and be reflected from the child's face is far faster than a human blink). The problem may be in pre-flash and not the flash itself. So that redeye-reducing "feature" may be responsible for your problem. Does your camera have a redeye reduction mode on the flash?

Dsc-P72 picture quaility

The only thing you missed, unfortunately is the camera you should've bought. The p72 is riddled with problems. Noisy high ISO shots, colours too hot, Vignetting and downright poor quality pictures compared to cameras with less Megapixels. A lot of people swear by them but they are usually people who've never owned any other camera. Those color casts and tinted shots are very offputting to someone with more scope in Digital cameras. I'm not totally condemning the p72 but there are many, many cameras of the same format which leave it for dead. BMW

Hoary zone in my shot with dsc-p72

looks like there might be a spot or smudge on the lens. Try cleaning it even if you don't see anything. I had the same prob with my sister-in-laws' p72. All pictures in daylight had a glare. I told her to let me check it out and the first thing I saw was the lens was filthy. Hopefully this solves your problem.

Sony Cyber-shot Digicams - Picture Quality !?!?!?

I'm assuming you purchased a Sony as replacement. If that's the case, take it back and ask for a new one or have it checked out. Something sounds horribly wrong to me. If by chance you got one of those Chinese/Taiwanese cameras. Give it away and go back to the P72. Of course, a few hours reading the manual and playing with the camera may solve your problems. Don't try to get fancy first off. Stick with Auto modes until you get a feel for what you're doing. If you are using Auto the go back to the first sentence :-) BMW
