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

This camera with the ISO set to 100 ASA, the electronic zoom turned off, and with the mode on Automatic "A", should take very good pictures. \015\012\015\012I would give the camera to the manufacture for service, and include some samples ... Olympus Stylus 820 Digital Camera

Hello, I purchased a Kodak Easy Share C613 at my local Target last November of 08. I really like it but when I try and go backwards to look at my pictures it won't let me. Or it won't let me delete my pictures that I just took. I don't have the receipt or box anymore. My mom got the same one I could use her box to send it to you all to get repairs but the serial numbers will be different. Can you please tell me what are my options or what to do in this case I really need it fixed. Thanks so much

Try Shutter Priority mode (Tv). Adjust the shutter time for an extended shot of several seconds or more. Of course, recommend using a tripod to do this, and using the camera's timer to take the shot to minimize camera shake. ... Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera

I am trying to take photos of my daughter cheering at football games ... I am having to zoom in and the pictures are grainey ... typical night game football lights ... how can I improve picture and get rid of graininess?

This is a general problem with low-light photography. The human eye can adapt well enough to see the action on the field and sidelines, but the camera can't. This leads to digital noise, which appears as something similar to film grain (and will henc ... Canon PowerShot G7 Digital Camera

I have had my camera for not even a year and it recently started having this problem. Whenever I take a picture, the object will look fine in the display, but when I take the picture it gets horizontal lines across the picture. It is much worse if there is any natural light coming into the picture. I have tried adjusting the flash, the white balance, but the pictures are still coming out this way. Also, if there is a good amount of natural light, you can't see the object you at all, it looks

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

Blue photos Can anyone tell me some reasons why some outdoor shots I took of snow/trees, etc. might look blueish? I took some pictures at sundown that came out fine, and ones I took about 10 minutes later look blue. I don't recall changing any settings. I also took similar shots at the same time with another digital camera and those looked fine. Is this something that's common in low light with a lot of white background? (Or is this a "user problem?")

Snow pictures tend to be blue due to the blue spectrum being scattered and reflected from the snow (similar to why the sky is blue). Plus just after sunset, you're going to get a cooler color temperature (blue cast).\015\012\015\012However, instead o ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10 Digital Camera

Pink pictures the other day.... I was using my camera and it started showing lines through the image, the image quality was getting worse and worse.  I figured needs new batteries.  So I put new batteries in it and now it takes pink pictures!  How strange my evergreen pictures look in fushia color!   I tried and tried for a couple of weeks, I checked all the settings, even took the batteries out and restarted, but still pink!  all shades of pink!  Here's where it really gets odd, I got my camera

I have a pentax optio A30 with 2.0 gb card. I took pictures last night of my grandsons birthday and was viewing them in the camera as I took them. Tonight I went to put them on my computer and i get a message on my camera that says " card not formatted" and I cannot find my pictures in the camera, and I cannot upload them at all - I was just looking at them last night. I have not done anything with my camera. HELP!!! How could I have lost my grandson's pictures when they were all there last nig

I hope you didn't format the card because that erases the pics forever. You could get a separate card reader and try to download them that way. You could take the card to a store like Walmart and plug the card into one of their picture making machine ... Pentax Digital Cameras

I dropped my camera on the beach right as a shallow wave was coming in. In my fumbling to recover the camera I turned it on. The lens extended and remained that way. I took the plastic camera cover off, rinsed all parts (with purified water) that I could. I air and low heat blew dry the camera over several day, and re-assembled it. When I insert batteries I get a power light, but get no lcd screen, no sound of pictures taken on full compression of picture button, no further extension or ret

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

Hello, I have been given a very old model of this camera for use in a workshop with street children. The screen is out of focus and all the pictures come out blurry. When I look at the screen without any pictures on it looks like grainy like it is a really bad resolution. Is the camera just too old? It also gives off smoke when the flash goes off! If possible could you get back to me asap. Many thanks, Kate

It is a possiblity that the batteries were weak and caused the camera to shut off while saving the picture. Try using a card reader to load the picture into your rcomputer. \015\012\015\012I have run into this before and sometimes there is nothing th ... Olympus FE-140 Digital Camera

Black LCD When I took pictures yesterday, each picture looked like it had a white fuzzy covering over it. Now when I turn the camera on the lcd stays black. But when I switch the button from camera to video it works. I also can get the previously taken pictures to show up. I have charged and changed a couple of pairs of batteries.

"Invisible" Pictures I just took a day's worth of pictures, and while I can view all of them on the camera in viewer mode, about 18 are simply missing when I hook the memory card up to the computer. It's mostly the last few. I tried taking new pictures and even a video clip to see if something had stopped recording, and those don't show up on the computer either. Any ideas how I can get those last few to register on the computer? Otherwise it looks like I won't be able to save copies of my p

Dark Pictures Hi. 2-3 years ago my Dad bought a Kodak EasyShare DX6490 and it's worked just fine in the past. Now, unless you have full sunlight and a very bright day, it takes dark pictures. I was out today in the snow and took several pictures with it. While they look okay on the viewing screen, when I get them onto the computer, they're very dark. Can you help me? Thanks ever so much!

Lens error When I turn on Nikon Cool Pix S230, it tries to adjust the lens for a little bit then it says lens error.  It is only a few months old.  I think what caused the problem was the last time I took  a picture there was a strobe light in the background which caused the picture to look funny.  Then a few days later when I tried to work the camera I got this problem.  thank you!
