Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-3040 Zoom Digital Camera ?

Image quality in low resolution

\015 I think a image at 2048x1536 too big and full of imperfections. So, I intend to use a digital camera to shoot at lower resolutions. However, I am afraid about the final picture quality...\015\012\015\012If you have some time, please help me to answer these questions: \015\012\015\012If I use a 3.3MP or a 2.1MP cam to take pictures at 1600x1200 resolution (or less), will the image quality be the same?\015\012\015\012For example: \015\012C-3040 "SQ1 high 1600x1200" is the same that C-2040 "HQ 1600x1200"? \015\012And... \015\012C-3040 "SQ2 high 1024x768" is the same that C-2040 "SQ1 high 1024x768"? \015\012Thanks for any help. \015\012Andre.\015

SHQ1 and HQ are two different levels of compression to make the file smaller. This will have a great impact on the image quality.\015\012\015\012Generally on Olympus cameras, this is what those letters mean: \015\012\015\012\015\012TIFF (highest (best) quality) generally not used. Files are HUGE and takes a long time for the camera to save the image to the card.\015\012\015\012SHQ (super high quality) you probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference between this and the TIFF\015\012\015\012HQ (high quality) which is lower quality than SHQ \015\012SQ (standard quality) which is lower quality than HQ \015\012SQ1 (standard quality 1) which is lower quality that SQ \015\012SQ2 (standard quality 2) which is lower quality that SQ1 \015\012\015\012\015\012A 2048x1536 only seems large because most people have their monitors set to 800x600 or maybe 1024x768 (that's what I have mine set at).\015\012\015\012This will seem to make the image REALLY LARGE! It only seems that way because you have to scroll around to see the image.\015\012\015\012If you want to print images, you'll want all the resolution you can get. \015\012\015\012If you want to display them on your screen (slide show,WEB page) then you don't need large images. You would just need to resize them down.\015\012\015\012However, since you may want to both, getting a camera with a higher resolution gives you the choice to do either. Usually, the higher resolution cameras have better lenses and generally take better pictures.\015\012\015\012On my camera (the Oly 2100), I always shoot at the highest resolution and the least amount of compression (SHQ on my camera). This allows me to do almost anything with the image. Nowadays, camera media (smart cards) are fairly cheap, HD's are DIRT cheap and CD-Rs are very cheap.\015\012\015\012If the images are "keepers", then I personally would want to start with the best image possible and store the images on CD.

Moire patterns A few months ago I decided to 'wet my toe' with digital photography and I bought very cheap Mustek GSmart Mini 2 digicam. As you might expect with a $60 camera the image quality is a bit limited due to the fixed focus lens, low resolution (1.3MP) and poor low light performance. Anyway, now that I can see the advantages of digital photography I'm planning on buying a decent camera e.g. Canon S230 to overcome the problems of the Mustek. One problem that the mustek has

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!!!!
