Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I set the Smart Zoom to On and then I zoom in to record a football game. Later I view on my computer and it is always very fuzzy. If I do not zoom in then it's clear but the video is then too far away to see what players are who. The smart Zoom seems to never work no mater how I try it.


Answers :

Functionality of some digital cameras that allows a greater increase in the photograph to be captured. It is not optical zoom, or digital zoom (although these can be combined with the smart zoom), but is a technique that harnesses the megapixels are not using the camera to simulate increases. That is, the intelligent zoom uses the potential of mega pixel camera to use the full power of the sensor CCD with it. The smart zoom is always only possible when the camera is not configured to take photos with a maximum of megapixels it has.

For example, suppose we have a 6-megapixel digital camera set to take 3-megapixel photos. We use full optical zoom, but we need a little more zoom. The smart zoom (gradually\015\012as you ask for more increase) will increase the megapixels of the\015\012camera to the maximum extent possible (in this case 6 megapixels). For more megapixels, the more pixels that captures your sensor will be shielded from "real world", allowing a greater increase. Recall that a same shot taken with 6 megapixels to 3 megapixels, is somewhat larger, because more pixels are saved.

The smart zoom is much better quality than digital zoom, but does not reach the quality of optical zoom. Actually, it depends on the quality of the camera sensor.

Smart zoom works in a different way to digital zoom. It is cleverer and\015\012does not degrade the quality of the photo. The downside of this type of\015\012zoom is that you cannot use the full resolution of your camera when you\015\012are using Smart Zoom. For example if you have an 8 megapixel digital\015\012camera it only becomes available at 7 megapixels and below.

It is also true that as you decrease the resolution you are shooting at\015\012more Smart Zoom becomes available. Taking an 8 megapixel camera as an\015\012example again if you reduce the resolution to five megapixels 1.8x\015\012extra zoom becomes available. If you decrease the resolution down to 1\015\012megapixel 4.7x Smart Zoom becomes available.

I hope help you.
Do you have auto selection? If you do I recommend you use this for your video. Then place your finger on the zoom button/slide to manually pull the scene closer enough first. Then you should be able to have clear/vivid shuts.

I have never had a problem retrieving pictures from my Olympus Stylus 730, I can open the memory card and drag the pictures to a folder on my computer without a problem. However, I cannot do this with video files. I can't even play them straight from the memory card folder on my computer (Dell PC).

I have just bought a Panasonic SD700 camcorder. It is fantastic. But I am a novice and all I want to do is to transfer the files to my laptop and watch them. Media Player wouldn't play them so I downloaded Codecs which has partially solved the problem. Downloaded VLC Media Player which again has partially solved the problem. I can now see the home video clips but there is a significant amount of horizontal line distortion (best way I can describe it) when the camera or the subject moves.

I have the SX-10. The view finder, before grabbing scene has a spider-web pattern, which does not show up in shots. This problems is minor compared to the zoom control sticking. I have disassembled the body to see if there is dirt or other visible reason, but see nothing. I have four other cameras, and am retiring this one, because it takes too much fiddling. If I could get it working well, I could give it away. Any non-pro solution?

I have a Fujifilm E900 and I think that i have either dropped my camera or water has been spilt on it. The screen isnt cracked but when the camera turns on, 3/4's of the screen is white with a massive black mark spread over the top of it. then the bottom quarter is perfectly fine, just i cant see or aim to take picures. Plus i think the zoom has stopped working too, as it only zooms so far but not to the full extent that i know it can.

My Dad, 91years old, received a Kodak Easyshare model z1285 from a friend for christmas. no manual. He lives 400 miles away and called to ask if I knew where the SD card goes. Since I can't see the camera I thought I would ask the experts. He thinks it goes on the end but the door won't open. Is there a trick to the door? Is there only a door on one end? Just to make sure I can explain it to him, please explain it to me as simply as possible since I have never seen the camera. Thanks.


The door to access the SD card slot is on end of the camera which is closest to the round knob on the top of the camera. If you turn the camera on end and look at the door, it has small groove in it that is about an inch long. Holding y ... Kodak EasyShare Z12851 Digital Camera
