my s600 pictures are always blotchy when viewed at fullsize no matter what best shot i use. i use prefocus too. anti-shake is always off.

here is an example of a blotchy pic using "pet" best shot mode:

What do you mean by "blotchy"? The dog's head?

What you have posted is a BMP image. Probably the conversion caused this?

Use the highest possible resolution and send an unedited JPG pic.

It looks like as "pastel" or paint filter is switched on, at least with gimp or photoshop a picture would look this way after using such a filter.

it's not a bmp. this is the jpeg straight from the camera. i have not touched it one bit except for renaming the file. why is it like this? all my pics are.

and basically the entire pic is blotchy. the grass, the dogs legs/head, the leaves on the grass.

Yuck. There's definately something going on with the picture settings because mine don't turn out like that. Are you using the lowest quality? Is antishake on oroff? easiest thing to do is the "Reset" the camera via the menu and take an autoshot. Then repost the image here. With all the manual configuration that you can do with these new compact cameras, it's pretty easy to get 'special effects' if you muck around with the settings.

If theres a "fine" mode, turn that on (use the highsest quality, Max resolution for every picture)

That looks like compression that caused that blotchiness, I can see what you mean, And if your camera is set to economy mode or whatever, it will definitely do that..

my camera already was set to fine/hq mode and size 6m. basically the best quality settings there are. i use no manual settings except sat -1. i didn't use anti-shake. i hope my camera is not defective?

anyway, i will try the reset thing and set it to auto mode after and try to take some pics tomorrow. thanks.

ok i took some more pics after doing a reset and set it back to 6m fine mode, no anti-shake, digital zoom off, best shot mode set to auto... and it is exactly the same bad quality.

well first is your browser resizing it? you have to click the pic to make it maximum size. then look at the wooden pole for example. it looks like a waterpainting almost, or blotchy as i call it. same for all the little tree branches, they are blurry or something. the shingles on the roofs are completely weird also, not detailed at all.
