Having problems with your Pentax K110D Digital Camera ?

Grainy photos in sunlight

\015 I just bought a pentax k110d and when used outdoors especially in bright sunlight, the darker tones turn out grainy. I bought it because I needed another camera to replace my 10 yr. old broken sony. I need to be able to take perfect pictures for my brothers beach wedding next month. Please help. Thank You. Paul\015

\015\012The ISO is probaly set too high. change this by pressing the fn (function) button and selecting the right option (with the arrow key). then use the up and down arrow keys to change the setting. I don't like to go higher than ISO 400 but at a beach 100 should be fine.\015\012Don't point the camera in the direction of the sun as this can wash out the images. A filter would help somewhat.
Your ISO is probably set too high? to change iso press the fn (function) button and select the right option (with the right arrow) to go to the iso menu. Then use the up and down arrows to change the iso setting. I don't go higher then 400, and in the beach you could set it way down to 100. \015\012Don't point the camera in the direction of the sun as this can wash out the photo. A filter would help somewhat.

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

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

I have a Canon Power Shot A720. Outdoor photos are beautiful. Indoor photos are always grainy/blurry...a lot of noise. I have tried the ISP feature but there are only two choices... 1. Auto or 2. High ISO Auto Either setting, the indoor photos are grainy. Further, there are times when my flash will not work. It won't work on Auto setting or when I try and "force flash" it. No flash and the photo will not allow a picture to even be taken. Any suggestions? Thanks

Red eyes appear in all my photos how do I eliminate that? Also if I am taking photos outdoors on a snowy day with not much sunlight how can I get good photos?

Red eye is cause by the internal flash being mounted to close to the lens center axes and is a common problem with most all cameras built this way. Many manufactures have attempted to use "red eye" reduction which fires a pre-flash to close the subje ... Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

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)

When I upload photos onto my computer from my memory card, there are always two copies of each photo. One copy seems true to life and the other is slightly saturated and grainy. It's frustrating that I have to go through and delete every other photo, and it of course takes twice the amont of time to upload. Is there a setting or something that I can change on my Canon? I have the G10. Thanks!

Those two image files have got to have different prefix letters maybe the same file number but the files are way different as one is shot in a jpg format and the other in a RAW format. Your camera is much more powerful that you think and the features ... Canon PowerShot G10 Digital Camera

Hi, I purchased a Nikon Coolpix P80 digital camera, its a beaut camera to use but I appear to have issues with it.

I have a Canon Powershot A720 IS. The photos are never very sharp. They always come out slightly grainy and the colours are off. I have lost the manual so don't know if this can be resolved or not. Even when I touch up the photos with Photoshop they look rubbish.

The graininess of the photos would be due to an ISO sensitivity that is set too high. A good idea is to set it to "Auto". You can look through the menu and see if your ISO is set to 1600 or 800, that is too high for general use. An improperly adju ... Canon PowerShot A720 IS Digital Camera

My NIkon D70s has colored streaks and grainy pixels throughout all of my photos. This happened a few times intermittently and cleared by turning the camera on and off. It is now worse and doing it on every photo. Turning the camera off no longer clears the problem. I have tried different lenses and the problem is consistent with all of them so it is specific to the camera itself. I have reset the menu but the problem still persists.

When trying to take a picture the color is off. It shows a purple tent on the screen, but there are old photos on there that are shown in normal color. It suddenly switched to giving everything the purple tent and has grainy lines going across the screen. I have tried to reset the settings to see if that would help but it hasn't. I haven't tried to upload any of the photos with the purple tent to see if they come up normal colors on my computer. Thank you!

There's no way for you to fix this. You have the classic signs of a failed ccd unit. There's nothing you did to cause it and nothing you could have done to prevent it. All you can do is to return the camera to Panasonic for repair. If the ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZR1 / DMC-ZX1 Digital Camera

Grainy photos I have the Canon Powershot S3 IS. The had it in sports mode taking pictures of a baseball game and they turned out grainy. What do I do?
