Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P52 Digital Camera ?

DSC-P52 image quality and size


\015 Just bought a DSC-P52, I'm happy with it, but I wonder that image quality is sometimes terrible, even with FINE quality, and first of all I wonder that my images are 2048x1536 and about 1,3MB and the same picture taken with a Nikon (can't remember which one, but as cheap as P52) is 22702x1704, about 500KB and far better quality!!! Is there something I have to do with my settings?\015\012Is it possible to take uncompressed pics with P52?\015

Answers :

I assume you bought this used, do you have a manual? You can download it from Sony directly (for free); http://129.33.22.12/release/DSCP52.pdf
\015\012As far as the photo quality goes, this camera was first sold in 2003, and they have come a long way with automatic cameras in the last 5 years. If some time the photo is better than other times, thinks you should check is that the lease doesn’t have any smudges on it. You would not notice by looking at the screen if there was a finger print on the lens. Be careful about going from cool areas to warm ones this will cause the lens to fog-up
\015\012You are shooting in the highest resolution available from this camera, there is no RAW mode.

My Dimage A1 camera has been fuctioning perfectly. Recently, I changed from JPEG to RAW and took several images. I now am attempting to return to JPEG without success. I believe I am following instructions correctly on pages 80, 81, & 82 of the Instruction Manual, but I apparently am missing a step or two somewhere. When I click on "Image Size" and "Quality" in the Menu Section, either nothing happens or it pops back to the previous selection. When I right click on the Size and Quality, aga

I own a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 with a 4GB Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo. After taking several images, the camera started changing the viewing size of some images.

I have tried reformating the memory stick, but this did not seem to help. Also, I occasionaly loose images when I go back to view them - the screen goes blue with a file forma

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)
