Grainy, image I bought my Riccoh Caplio GX 5.1 mp three years ago. At first it took the best pictures I could wish for, but for monyhs now I am getting very variable results. Some photos are OK, but many are grainy, "pixleated" - having tiny spots of the primary colours throughout the image. There doesn't seem to be any one situation when this happens. It can be inside, outside, flash or none. The pictures also seem to be a lot darker, so photos taken inside or at night are much poorer quality,
You might have changed the settings; ISO setting too high or something else, just reset it to factory settings if you can't figure out ISO. ... Ricoh Caplio GX Digital Camera

Bad image Hello to you all... My S1 IS from one moment to another has shown a problem... I can point e focus normally but after de shoot the preview is very BAD and the image saved is the same of the previewd one...

Lost Pictures I took a few pictures one night. Two days later I viewed these photos and they were on the camera. The battery was exhausted.

I put my memory card into another camera and the pictures were not there either. Help!! I have a CoolPix 10.

Every time I try and upload pictures onto my computer using my Nikon s4000, the pictures are extremely distorted, but look completely fine on the camera itself. I use the chord that came with the camera to transfer them onto my computer. This is the second s4000 I've had, because the first one i purchased had the same exact problem. The only way that the pictures aren't distorted are when I upload them to my boyfriend's laptop by taking the memory card out of my camera and putting it in his lapt

Grainy pictures I have had my Nikon Coolpix S8 camera for two years. At first the pictures were all very clear and I was very happy.

If so, please advise giving me clear directions. I am camera illiterate. Please help me. Thank you.

I have a canon rebel xsi that is not taking pictures on auto focus. It will take pictures on manual focus, but they're blurry.

I have a Nikon S200 digital camera. I took some pictures last night, using the flash. When I flicked back through them, I found a problem. I would look at a picture as it was focusing, and after a few seconds when it was focused, it would distort in all different colors. Also, when I try to import those photos into iPhoto on my Macbook Pro, it says that the files are unrecognizable.
