Hello! I actually have a TZ3 and have been having problems with the quality of the pictures without using the zoom (grainy) as well as problems with the quality of the picture when using the zoom (blurry). the camera is 3 & 1/2 years old and i am not sure what the problem is. can someone make some suggestions? thanks! jennifer


Hello, yes a few suggestions "grainy" could be from an auto ISO setting the sensor speed high as in possibly ISO 400 even 800 or higher you get the pictures but it's grainy. On pocket point and shooters this is most often the case in full automatic m ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 Digital Camera

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 Canon PowerShot A1100IS camera. A problem has occurred. When I look at ther large screen to take a photograph there is a black smudge that also appears on any photographs that I take. If I use the zoom, the black mark becomes more pronounced - it it becomes a large spot - again - appearing on any photograph that I take. I have very carefully cleaned the lens but it makes no difference. Please could you advise. Thank you. Peter Sewell.

Hi. I have had a Samsung S1050 camera for just under 3 years, and have had satisfaction in using the camera and with the picture quality for most of that time, however just within the last few weeks, the quality of photographs taken has gone rapidly downhill, with white-out when using the flash and poor light levels, and when zooming in on any picture that has recently been taken, there are noticeable horizontal lines across it through the entire photo, much like an old 70's tv.

Grainy Pictures I have had my olympus stylus 710 for about 6 months and have been noticing more and more grainy pictures once developed. They are usually when taken indoors. It doesn't look grainy on the LCD screen but when they are developed it is very grainy. This even happens when the flash is used. Any suggestions? Is there a setting I can change for higher quality pictures? I have a gig memory so I don't care if I am going to be using a lot of space. Got 7.1 megapixels and want to use

What happened is this: the zoom lever has become loose. I hadn't applied any excessive pressure to it or force to it in any way, but while using it to navigate through the photo browser (which is one of its functions) it suddenly made a slight ?click? sound and felt very loose (as if a spring or a coil inside it broke). Subsequently the camera only zooms in/out to its maximum capacity, while normally it should pause between the zooms. g7 canon

Grainy Pictures Lately I have been looking at my images photographed at 1200X800 and seen they look quite grainy. I have no idea why they have all this grain, I have the sharpness at normal level and the quality set as FINE. The ISO is in auto mode also. Does anyone have any idea what it could be or how I can get better less grainy pictures.


With the iso set on auto mode it will change depending on the light and anything above iso 200 is very bad on this camera i know have the 717 and it does a lot better but if you can set the iso yourself and take it off auto allways use 100 or 200 for ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F707 Digital Camera

I am having trouble photographing birds. Do I use the telephoto lens or the wide angle lens? I also have a macro lens for my Canon EOS 400D SLR Also what settings do I take them at. I have a tripod but the birds are too quick so they have to be for hand held. I am finding that when taking them with the telephoto lens they are not sharp and the background is blurred and not good. Thank you Val


Use the telephoto lens.. wide angle will tend to distort the image and provide too much detail( distraction) around the object of interest. Bird pictures become more interesting when they are mainly of the bird. So when you look through the lens, zoo ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

Is there such a thing as a suggested setting for the Canon D50 that shows exactly what are the proper setting for the Canon D50 to get high quality images? I real

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)

I bought a spare battery DMW - BCG10E for my Panasonic DMC-ZS3 Digital Camera but it doesn't work since the firmware is meant for Version 1.1. Should I try to downgrade my firmware to V. 1.1 in order to be able to use that battery? Or, is it going to affect the quality of playback HD videos? In any case, I tried to download the firmware Update 1.1 Driver for Mac OSX to be able to use that battery but couldn't find any internet server capable of doing it. Thanks!


Hi.Most batteries of this kind work with firmware 1.1 and following \015\012(1.2,1.3 and 1.4). They never work with the 1.0 version, which was \015\012built in in earlier DMC-ZS3. Check your firmware version. If you have 1.0 ... Digital Cameras

Fish photographing I have a HP 3.5 (i think) and it takes great pictures of family pets etc ... but, how do I take clear pictures of fish? Yeah, things in water it doesn't capture so well, everything comes out very blurry. I use a lot of light, don't zoom, use the action settings and all that jazz, but still it doesn't come out nice. Please help me


I have had good luck with fish pictures by pressing the front of the lens barrel up against the glass.\015\012\015\012This blocks out reflections that the glass will cause and it also holds the camera very steady.\015\012\015\012If it is a small curv ...

Raw setting I shot a number of photographs when using the image quality 'raw'. I now cannot upload these images onto my computer. In the Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 window they come up as cracked files which cannot be uploaded and in my regular uploading wizard they don't show up at all. What can I do to upload my photos?


You do need RAW compatable software to read these files.However this should not prevent you simply saving them to a file.When you say regular Wizard - is this the Windows scanner/Camera Wizard or the one on the Camera CDIf the latte ...

My Canon Rebel XT camera was working just fine, but suddenly halfway through using it won't shoot any more. Everything on the camera works just fine, it just won't take any photographs in any mode. It can't be a problem with my CF card as its a trusty one I've had for a while, and I've tried formatting it just in case and my camera still won't work.

Camera problem My daughter just received a new HP635 camera for her birthday. At first the camera worked fine, but after a few minutes of use, the camera started flashing the welcome screen repeatedly and the zoom lense would move in and out over and over until we opened the battery storage compartment of the camera. Opening the battery compartment is the only way to turn the camera off. Everything on the camera becomes inoperable when this process starts which now is every time the camera is tu

The only way to get the green light off again is to take the batteries out. Also, the lens is stuck open, and the zoom partially out. What should I
