Sony M1 photo quality issue


\015 The Sony M1 looks decent and feels quite good in use but the biggest concern is the photo quality. I taught the optics/image sensor in this camera was near identical to the T1/T3/T33, however after looking at the photo samples I can't figure out why the M1 photos look so terrible in comparison(very fuzzy and soft images). Sample photos posted by Jeff Keller at dcresource:\015\012 http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/sony/dsc_m1-review/gallery.shtml\015\012\015\012I used to own the T1 and photos didn't look half as bad, but the M1 photos look dissappointing. Bad sample? M1 owners out there could you confirm this?\015

Answers :

The DSC-M1 does not like movement. If held very still or with a tripod, the pictures come out quite clear and crisp. If hand held, about 1 in 5 of my photos come out without being fuzzy or soft. Pictures taken with low light also come out "soft".
I love my M-1...My Pics are all sharp.I love the video as well.Very nice to send 20 sec MPEG4 on AOl...may not be DVD quality but not herky jerky either.I also love the design.

My Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H7has bought up an issue where it brings up an 'usb connecting' screen for one or two seconds occasionally when using the camera. This does not effect the photo taking quality at all, it just means I have to wait for the screen to clear. Do I have to get a tech. to fix it, or can it be done in camera. 2 years old and out of warranty. Very annoying. Any thoughts. Thanks, Ian.


Hi ian. this is not a normal camera operation. usb connecting screen should only appear during camera to computer connection. so if your using the camera and this happens intermittently it would indicate that there is a mulfunction inside the camera ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H7 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. When taking a photo and viewing it at 100% I find the quality of the picture is not clear, its very grainy. Is the issue with myself as I do tend to have alittle camera shake. Is there too much noise is my ISO too high as its set at 200. How do I take a good photo.


I recomend you to use ISO64 for it shoots a good picture than ISO200 above. it is normal for us to shake our hands a little while taking pictures but the cam still can get a sharp image. if you VR is turned off it can produce shots with a shaky resul ... Nikon Digital Cameras

Quality Problem I have SONY DSC 717, indeed a unique one but I am facing problem with the quality of its snap. The photo becames paler (faded) in respect of its color and contrust. The quality (as we see in digital camera) is not up to the mark. Any advise for any technical adjustment in the camera or will help me a lot. Thanks.


I had a Sony F707 for quite a number of photos before buying an F717. I found the F717 to underexpose by about 0.3EV relative to the F707, pretty consistently, so I just set the EV compensation on the F717 to +0.3EV most of the time.\015\012\015\012T ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera

Photo resolution I have a friend who has a Sony DSC-H1. She says she is shooting photos in the highest quality possible but when she upload them to the computer they are enormous in size but only 72 dpi. She is trying to aquire a 300 dpi photo. Is there a setting that should be changed or a different method of uploading to assure higher dpi's?


Sony H1 takes photos at 72 dpi by default. But the picture quality will be good. if you want to convert it to 300dpi open the picture in adobe Photoshop and select image size and change resolution to 300 dpi. but the file size will be very high to ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H1 Digital Camera

Indoor Photography I have a Sony DSC-P1 3.2 Mega Pixels camera. I've owned it for 3 years now and have been happy with it. However, one thing that I've noticed is that sometimes when I take pictures indoors with limited light, the quality of the picture isn't very good (it's sort of fuzzy). When the lighting is better (such as outdoors), the quality is outstanding (crisp and clear) and produces beautiful pictures. This issue regarding taking pics indoors or in lower light - is this a camera qual


What's probably happening is this: Since the light is low, the shutter must remain open for a relatively long time. If you're hand-holding the camera, you'll get blurry shots. Using a tripod will eliminate this. It doesn't typically happen outdoors b ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P1 Digital Camera

Poor focus I am using the Nikon d80 with a Sigma 24-70 mm lens. I am not satisfied with the crispness of the photos. I have tried shutter speeds of 1/500 and higher, using a tripod, and using shutter delay to get better clarity and sharp focus, but none has worked. The quality is not as good as my 2 meg Sony! Is this to be expected from the 10 meg cameras? thanks! [email protected]


Are you using a DX lens. Do you know if you have the camera's auto focus set to AF (auto focus) or M (manual)? There are many things that effect the focus and as an added note, any shots over 1/60 shutter speed in normal light should be in focus wi ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

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!!!!

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

Hi guys... I'm having the same issue with my Sony DSC-T33 as has been described here by many other people. I've done the Reset, and the Power Reset, online with the Sony Tech people. They say now it's a hardware issue and I'll have to send it in.......... NO MENTION of this known issue with the component part. So I bring it up and am told that is not in their database, so they don't know about it. What? I'm given a phone number for the "Customer Relations Team". Now in my online research

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)

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.

Hi. Very unhappy with quality of Ixus 80is photos. They are not at all sharp, milky, with no depth, in various light conditions. I did comparison identical rural scenic photos with the canon and 2 different 5 megapixel phone cameras. In most cases, the Nokia N95 camera results are far superior to the canon. I have read nothing but good reviews about the quality of pics from this camera so I'm wondering why mine are so bad. Any ideas?
