Default So far disappointed..

Hi,
I took about 10 pics since I got the cam... I started with EXR auto and after the firts 6 pics I was disappointed big time..
Then I tried som EXR, auto, P, and I am still disappointed.
The amount of noise is huge.

Some of the pictures are so bad, that I cannot explain myself, why it's like that..
I will try attach some here, but if this is the average, I cannot use it.

After resizing them to attach them here they look better, but the original are bad.

My Canon A610 is like another planet...

What happens guys? Please give me an hint.

Regards

I took now 70 pics...
None of them is good.
EXR auto, Auto are not usable. It's evening there is still light outside in DK
With flash, no flash, I tried a bit of everything.. :-)
Unless I really blew it myself, I cannot see how this cam is usable for a beginner like me.
I will try tomorrow in full daylight.
I cannot believe it can be that bad.
The picture posted here are much cleaner than thos in full res. on the PC
Regards

Firmware 1.03 but when button is half-way down, the images on the LCD
are darker than before I half-pressed.

In "EXR auto" sometime the flash is not firing even if it says "night ...."

I am a bit confused and not happy... I wish I had an expert of this cam here.

The noise is amazingly high...
Out of 99 pics only 1 is decent...

Tried a movie... decent but focus was struggling, at center focus.

Either this cam is buggy, or I did not know how to use it.. but not even in auto EXR or normal auto is acceptable,

G'day BB

We need a bit more from you before answering 100%
Rather than posting the full image only, how about posting one image that bothers you compressed to screen size AND a 100% portion of that same image - ie from the 1st posting above, how about a 100% posting of say, 500 x 500 pixels of the face and hair [light and dark bits]

This is more likely to give us enough to go on, rather than lots of images all reduced in size to the point that we cannot see what it is that has got you upset
Regards, Phil

What exact was wrong with the ones posted above as they look OK to me. I rarely myself blow my images up more than screen size......... but I get similar results with my HS20 and my images are used in a local newspaper from time to time......

I don't use exr mode. I use p mode with auto 400 iso. sometimes i force 100 all the time. There are other settings to consider as well

Thanks..
@ozzie traveller, can you explain me how to do what you asked me..
How do I post this "version" of the photo in the forum here. or you would like me to use Flickr.

@photo5, thanks for the answer (also in pm)..

I am not an expert, I need primarely a P&S with a good zoom, I shoot 60% of my photo indoor in all kind of light, and I do not print photos more than 20x30.

This cam is very nice, I like the shape, the way it's build, and so on.

I just think that it requires a lot of "extra" doing to have a decent photo with less noise as possible, even though I do not ask "pro" quality.

When I opened the photos taken on a 22" monitor they are awful... meaning the noise is all over the place.

I am not criticizing the cam, I am just telling you what I get :-)

Your help is fantastic, but you deal with am "ignorant" in photography.

My family needs to use the cam too, so EXR or Auto is the only thing they can manage.

I see that both passed me some settings here... but how can these settings deal with day and low light?

Explain me please how exactly I can show you the photo the way you can "see" what you ask.

Regards

May I ask which size you're using, when you take the picture? Most cameras, even point and shoots, have a size adjustment.

If you're taking pictures that aren't big enough, they'll look bad on your screen, when you blow them up. Likewise, if you're taking really big pictures, sometimes they'll look bad on your screen, until you resize them smaller. Does that make sense?

Hi, they are taken in EXR auto derfor in 8MP...
But also those taken at 12 or 16 are like that.
