Grainy looking photos

\015 I'm getting grainy looking photos on the camera when i view them and as well when i upload them to see and ssend them. I love to take pictures and have never seen this before and dont know how to fix the problem. I have a Sanyo C-S600 Digital camera\015

Answers :

Reset the camera to factory settings
\015\012set everyting automatic
\015\012then try.
\015\012Also if your day photos are good then its the ISO Setting
The first thing I'd check would be the ISO setting. If it has the capability of changing that, the go with a setting of 100 or lower. The higher the ISO, the more digital noise you will get.

Hope this helps!

Grainy Pictures I received this camera as a Christmas gift, this past Christmas, and I have not been able to get a decent photo from it yet. The indoor photos are very grainy with a bubble sometimes in the photo. Outdoor photos are too light and also grainy, especially when the zoom is used. I have tried adjusting the image quality and the ISO setting but neither of these adjustments have improved the quality of the pictures. The printed pictures look worse than the images on the LCD screen. I c

I have a Olympus C-750 UltraZoom. I was taking pictures and everything was normal, but then I noticed the viewfinder was blurry. I was walking through a tunnel under a river and I thought the temperature had changed enough to cause the lens to fog up. However, after cleaning the lens, the blurriness was still there. I could look through the photos on the camera and the photos taken prior to noticing the blurriness are clear and look great. After two days of being inside at room temperature,

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
