Image quality Hi. When I'm taking photos and set my exposure manually on my Canon 20D, the image looks right exposed on my LCD screen, but when I download all the photos on my PC, all the photos are VERY DARK. This takes lots of time for me to edit it and then after I've got the right brightness on my PC I discovered that the image quality is VERY BAD!!! There is lots of noise on the image. Can someone help me to find a solution to correct the exposure on my camera, so that I can save time on my

Canon Powershot G10 image quality problems... I have had my Canon Powershot G10 for 2 years and have had the same problem from the start... it is now driving me mad! When viewing photos in anything other than the supplied Canon Zoom Browser or Photo Professional the quality is poor. The images are noticeably blurred and appear grainy. I normally shot in manual mode with ISO80 and record images in RAW+JPEG. Processing the RAW photos seems to slightly improve the blur (though it is still there)

My Dimage A1 camera has been fuctioning perfectly. Recently, I changed from JPEG to RAW and took several images. I now am attempting to return to JPEG without success. I believe I am following instructions correctly on pages 80, 81, & 82 of the Instruction Manual, but I apparently am missing a step or two somewhere. When I click on "Image Size" and "Quality" in the Menu Section, either nothing happens or it pops back to the previous selection. When I right click on the Size and Quality, aga

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

How can i imorove the Image qualityt? My camera image size has always been set on 'large & fine' which tranlates into a 300dpi image when I open it in Photoshop. Suddenly, large and fine only puts out a 180dpi image. Do you know what might have happened to lower the image quality?

Actually, you should not have to resort to RAW to get it. Best pixel quality in both RAW *and* JPG LARGE FINE modes on this camera are listed on both the camera and in the manual at a resolution of 3456 x 2304. However, since not even Canon Tech sup ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

My panasonic has amazing imaging stabilising properties, and crystal clear images. But the flash is too bright, and washes everything out far too much, making faces and scenery white all the time. The colours arent natural more than often. They're just wishy washy. So I bought a sony, and the colours are much more natural, and flash much more reasonable, but the image quality is really not great at all, especially in low light conditions, and the image stabilising is almost useless!!!!

Have you done the basic unsharp masking after RAW processing? Normally you'll find a 500% strength, 0.3 pixel and a threshold of 1 or 2 brings out the detail masked by the AA filter very well.

Color Saturation I just upgraded to the Digital Rebel XT, and I noticed that my images (i usually shoot at ISO 100 w/a polarizer) are a little bland in the color saturation department. I have the camera set to Adobe RGB and am using photoshop to process the images (I usually shoot the high-quality JPGs), but I'm frustrated that the only way to get the color to match what I'm truly seeing in front of me is to pump up the saturation levels in Photoshop. I'd like the camera to capture that in the f

I would like to find a video camera that will allow me to freeze frames and get a single image from the video. I take animal pictures and using a regular camera is frustrating. If I could get 10 seconds of video, then take out a single image for a picture, it would help. I do not need more than 1 megaPixel quality. Thanks for the help

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

Message Display I have a 256MB memory card for my camera. I have not taken many photos. Even at the lowest picture quality setting of 640, the camera reads that I only have 146 images to take. When I try to review what is in the camera, I receive the message "No Valid Image to Play." The instruction manual explains that the message means. However, I was not able to find anything that tells what to do to increase the number of available photos from 146 to more. This problem happened once
